Making good videos

Specs: Windows XP, 252
Hello, I just started making videos, and I'm new to the whole filming thing. I film house hold stuff for demonstration, and edit the video and make it look professional. One problem I have, is well I do have a cheap pocket digital camcorder, but records very well. the only problem I have is, when filming something that is white in color, even though the camera is at a fixed spot (Not Moving) Anything white seems to, I don't know what you call it, but the object is too bright to the point you can't see the details, even in low light environment, the white bleeds over the details, If i put something brighter in the viewable area, than in some cases what I'm trying to film comes out great. Any dark object are fine when recording. The camera I have is a Flip Video and does not have any adjustments really. Maybe someone will help me to fix the lighting situation to where I can film white colored objects. I'm thinking of buying a better camera too, but #1 I don't know what to get, #2 I don't have the fiances to go out and buy a $400-$500 and up digital camcorder, Maybe a used older one 1-3 years old..

Do what the pros do. Have enough light on the subject and the background, Enough to have detail in the hilight and shadow.
