Best VLogging Cameras with A Flip
So you’re on a quest to find the best Vlogging cameras wit h a flip screen
without breaking the bank right? When I first started making YouTube videos, I
had no idea which camera to use, and I thought I was going to have to spend
thousands of dollars on a high end HD video camera to have quality video. Well
you might be surprised by my recent experience with just adding lights to
affordable cameras… the difference in quality is outstanding! For example, you
can take a $300 point and shoot, add the Studio Pro lights I bought, and you
have yourself a nice little setup.
Sure, you might not be able to do depth of field and other fancy focus shots like
you can with a DSLR, but for a budget YouTube camera rig, the quality is pretty
awesome even in low light settings!
Let’s take a look at some affordable blogging/vlogging cameras, and discuss
the pros and cons of each. By the end of this article, you’ll be able to decide
which vlogging camera is right for you and your budget.
What To Look For best Vlogging Camera
with a flip screen:
1) Size (most important)
Can you take it with you everywhere you go? If not, it’ won’t make a great
vlogging camera. You want a camera that’s both lightweight and easy to
carry… This rules out most full size camcorders and video cameras with external
mics, since they simply aren’t small enough to use in a lot of settings on the fly.
2) Lens Angle
The #1 thing that determines how far away the camera has to be from your
face, is the lens angle. For example, when I shoot inside with my iPhone on the
tripod mount, I have to move it twice the distance away compared to a regular
camera. This affects audio quality as well, since it doesn’t have an external mic
like a DSLR. You can rectify this easily for outdoor shooting with a selfie stick, but
to me it gets kind of weird using a selfie stick for desk shoots in your office since
you’re not physically moving around (but your hands will be holding the selfie
3) Image Stabilization (IS)
Built in image stabilizing is critical for videos being shot out on the field or on the
go. Don’t rely on YouTube’s image stabilization, because it frequently alters the
video quality after upload, and inexperienced video editors will have a hard
time getting the shakiness out of the footage. The Canon’s are the best in the
business in this arena, and you’d do very well with any of the Elf models of point
and shoot, or the higher end G7X Mark II.
4) Top Mounted Or Front Facing Microphone
A lot of cheaper point and shoots have top mounted microphones. These easily
and frequently get covered up by your fingers since your recording yourself and
often holding the camera in nontraditional ways. Having a front facing
microphone, instead of on top of the camera body, fixes a lot of these issues
and you’ll get much better audio. Just a minor detail to look out for when
choosing the best camera for you.
5) Smartphones (iPhone or Samsung)
Your smartphone can be perfect for a lot of shots in outdoor lighting, but for
indoor shooting lack the clarity in lower light settings. Lens angle isn’t wide
enough to capture up close shots or in places or narrow width/depth, so be
aware of that if you intend on recording a lot of your daily VLOGs in those types
6) Low Light
The biggest drawback to inexpensive cameras, is the lack of good image
quality in low light. Typically the more expensive the camera, the larger the lens
which in turn allows more light in for better performance in low light situations.
Again like I mentioned before, the best way I’ve found to improve your video
quality with any camera, is to add a set of these affordable camera lights like I
