Hi there everyone.  How are we all doing today?  It’s been a long time since I posted something on this blog, actually even before christmas!  So Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and I hope everyone is having a great 2017! Phew! Anyway, welcome back to my computer and consumer electronics blog.  I can’t believe one of my last posts was in November about my favourite games of 2016.

I’ve recently been looking at turning my blog into a vlog, you know internet marketing and all, although I’m not sure I have the face for video! However, regardless of my face it looks like vlogging is here to stay.  And if you fancy yourself as the next big YouTube star and want to rank in money through ad revenue then keep reading as I’ve got the best vlogging cameras for you.

Best video cameras to vlog with.

Go Pro Hero 5.

Probably one of the best known cameras on this list is the GoPro Hero5.  The self-described ‘experience sharing company’ has released their best vlogging camera to date.  Not only does it have high definition 4K video, voice control and image stabilisation but it is also waterproof without needing an additional case.  Not bad for the smallest and lightest unit.  GoPros can often be found being resold.  I found my second hand cheap GoPro Camera online here; http://www.for-sale.co.uk/go-pro-camera.

Sony RX100

Next up on our list is the Sony RX100.  A high end small, point and shoot styl of amera that is far easier to handle than a bulky DSLR.  Like most small cameras the RX100 has a flip up dsplay to help the ease of filming.  The quality of video with this camera is excellent, surpassing the GoPro hands down.  There is everything you could want in the Sony Rx100; 4k video, noise cancellation, slow motion aswell as WiFi.  The only issue is the price.  I suggest purchasing a pre-owned unit from an online classified ads website; http://www.for-sale.co.uk/sony-rx100.

Canon EOS 80D

The top dog of vlogging cameras, and particularly favoured by some of the most popular YouTubers.  The Canon 80D is a professional standard DSLR camera that is used by top end photographers although it also shoots high quality video.  Unless you are planning on shooting footage for a high end website or are an avid photographer then this might be too much for you.  It is incredibly expensive, as well as heavy.  However if you still feel like you want to buy one, you can buy one from http://www.for-sale.co.uk/canon-eos-80 which specialises in second hand goods for sale.

The best of the rest;

If none of those take your fancy then why don’t you give one of these a go.

  • Canon G7X MK II
    A simple, easy to use camera that features everything you will need to have a go at vlogging; flip screens, wifi and noise reduction.

  • Panasonic lumix DMC-LX15
    Very similar to the Sony RX100 but a significantly lower price.  This camera works incredibly well indoors and has great audio.

  • Nikon D3400
    Another bulky DSLR camera at a decent price.  Not the best but great if you’re a budding photographer but a bit cheap.
