well Scott, it is a bit... good stuff; but I can't stay on top of listening to everything :) The best thing is the links, and just having a solid searchable way to find tips or products mentioned on the FB page has been very helpful. I truly enjoy your DIY projects the besttest!!!
YEA! I'm the first comment..
I can't speak for everyone else but I think if you can do it... more more and even more! I follow your FB page and I always get great ideas, and I have NEVER been disappointed in any builds you have done. My shop is full of your builds and I thank you!

Canon S100 best P&S for video?

That's subjective. I'd say the Sony HX9V is with it's amazing 1080 60p mode and great image stabilization. IMHO.

Hey I am new at all of this... So I am up for as much information as I can get. One of the advantages of your format is - it's one place that I can see a ton of valuable information. I have already built a couple of your DIY projects and used a number of your tips. If your up for the work I am up for seeing it. Thanks!
