Whether for hobby or professional use, these picks will up your vlogging game.
Vlogging used to be limited to a select group of YouTubers who caught wind of a growing market trend, which has lead to today’s explosive growth of both amateur and professional vloggers. While many vloggers utilize their smartphones for capturing daily life, some might want to up their game by investing in a dedicated camera for better audio capturing and lengthier videos. With hundreds of different cameras available, we’ve helped wade through the options to select the best vlogging cameras available today.
Best Overall: Canon Powershot G7X Mark II
Measuring 2.4 x 1.65 x 4.15 inches and weighing 1.4 pounds, the Canon Powershot G7X Mark II is one of the most well-known cameras for vloggers. With an excellent combination of 1080p video at both 30 and 60 frames-per-second and stereo sound, the only real downside to the Mark II is its lack of 4K video shooting. The three-inch touchscreen offers complete control camera features and has 180-degree tilting up and 45-degree tilting down. There’s also optical image stabilization, which is a must-have for any vlogger.
Image capture is handled by a 20.1-megapixel CMOS sensor with DIGIC 7 image processor that provides outstanding low-light quality. Wi-Fi, NFC and Canon’s downloadable Camera Connect app on both Android and iOS make for an easy way to transfer both photo and video footage straight to a computer.
