Technical Information Listing:

This is meant to be a resource of information for people doing video for missions. This is mostly information generated or processed one way or another by Dan Philgreen. Some of this was originally posted as messages to various forums and user groups, so that may explain some wording if it seems strange. I'll try to keep this up to date, but some info may get obsolete and not get cleaned out right away. For this reason I will try to date these entries. Many more resources are available at the many links listed on the links page of this website and through various users forums that you can read about here. The pages below are on this site and each has a link back to this page of listings.
