Chinook Observer YouTube channel

With us moving into more and more multimedia stuff everyday it seems, it was a no-brainer to get us up on YouTube. Above you'll find the first video I did with an actual video camera, a
Canon GL2, on loan from our sister paper the Daily Astorian. It's not the greatest, but for another test subject-type job, I think it came out pretty well. It joins my first video, which was about my blues records, on our new YouTube Channel.
This piece is about Suzanne Knutzen, who plays the 80+ year old pump organ at the Oysterville Church.
I'm hoping that the Observer gets our own camcorder soon — I'd be psyched if it was HD, but even a GL2 would be sweet — cuz I have new ideas for projects that are either video or incorporate video with stills, all the time and I feel like I'm losing time by not being able to pursue them yet. I'll probably try and do a couple more on the grainy point & shooter (like the first one) in the meantime, just to get a little more experience.
Anyways, let me know what you think
