    Lighting is very tricky to get right, especially combating glare. I have been using natural light from a window with wooden slat blinds that I can adjust. This helps but is still not perfect, especially when the coins are in capsules that are so reflective. I guess I could cover the whole window with a big white sheet, effectively turning the window into a giant soft box to diffuse the light. 
    I think the glare is ok and actually quite nice as long as you keep it minimal. 
    Focus is another thing altogether and you just have to play around until you find something that works for you. I have a very contrived set up for my camera/iPhone but it seems to work well. You may have seen this photo on another thread:

    For most of my videos I wanted to get the objects closer so used a covered shoe box on the table. Then I thought, "Hang on, lose the shoebox and one of the wooden CD crates, that will make the whole set up a little steadier." It did make it steadier, however the auto focus on my iPhone kept hunting even if there was a coin right in front of it. Hmmm, must be the different background, so I tried covering the table with the same covering I used on the shoe box. No difference still the focus kept changing. 
    I put the extra crate back and add the shoe box again, which is very close to being the same depth as the crate, and the focus is pretty much rock solid. Strange that it should make a difference but it does so that is what I am sticking with for now. 
    It is pretty great that we have all started with making videos at the same time as we can learn from each other @supersealed and @PansPurse.
    I'm having a lot of fun with this and it is nice to have the videos to look at your coins when they are in storage and as a record. If it wasn't for @BackyardBullion's offer via our European Mint order I wouldn't have started on this YouTube path. 
    It is just over a year (yesterday actually) since I started stacking PMs so I guess a full stack video could be in order soon.

    The coins are so small its difficult to get them in focus plus my lighting is a bit iffy, I tried to add extra light but as you could see glare was also a problem. Ill try harder next time though
    Yeah as for the referral its a nice little bonus, the premiums on the gold are fairly low and postage is in with the price. BBP use special delivery which is expensive so I don't mind the added premium, on a small order the ounce of silver more than covers it I think. I believe the free ounce is a one off, I don't know maybe they have a glitch but I've made 2 orders now and got a free ounce both times. When I log into my account now the system is still offering me a free ounce for spending over £250.

    I like the "black murder gloves" and the knife sharp enough to cut your fingers off! 
    Nice video, audio was very clear, well done.

    @supersealed Thanks for the video! You have met all the requirements and as such you will be receiving a 1 oz silver coin in due course!
    It will probably be next week as I am just waiting for stock from the EU Mint.

    Mostly cpu's, at the time I never really bothered with the silver as it was mixed in with other junk and was mostly silver chloride. It never seemed worth the time and effort to collect up and convert the chloride to elemental silver. I do have a nice little jar of cemented silver from carat gold refining as this is no effort to recover. I always wanted to set up a silver cell and watch the crystals grow but again for the amount of silver I had access to it just wasn't worth it, also I'm terrified of silver nitrate so the less time mixing silver bearing material and nitric acid the better lol
