Have any of you had a good outcome videoing your welding? What did you learn to improve things?

This is my effort with an older recorder. It is on thick, uncleaned aluminum and uses about 310 amps. Too late, I noticed that my tungsten was too far away on this effort.

This isn't a bead; it's just a start with the torch and camera fixed in one position.

Never tried recording my own welds, but I've gotten a lot out of watching Jody's videos from Welding Tips and Tricks. I don't know how he gets such clear shots.

I agree with you about Jody's work.
There are several out there that are doing very clear videos.

This is a really good example:

It seems that some are using auxiliary lighting while blocking as much light transmission as possible from the welding arc. Are they using longband/shortband filter stacking? Notice how the above video shows no red/white heat in the tungsten in some shots.

I'm now thinking a bandpass filter in the 630 [nm] range.
The image would most likely end up with an undesirable color at 630 [nm], so set the camera to record in black and white or convert it in post-OMHO. I think I'll buy a low-cost filter to try first.

These guys seem to be the best at recording details in the welds:



If the price and safety are there, this is a winner.
