Everyone says you don’t need a pro camera and accessories to get started vlogging or as a YouTuber. That’s true. But… it’s kind of not true as well.
What I mean is that you can definitely get started creating videos with the camera in your pocket: your phone. You can. Or you can use a compact point and shoot like the Canon G7 X or Sony RX 100 version whatever. You can. But… I think you’re going to be disappointed with the results.
I talking here from personal experience; my own team’s trial and error.
When I started DailyTekk back in 2012 is was just a blog. Text written up and published using WordPress. This year, though, the blog expanded (well, shifted it more like it) to a video focus.
We didn’t intend to do anything too professional or over the top. We merely wanted to add some video to the site. I mean, this is the Internet and there are lots of “just okay” videos out there that are popular, right? Since we just wanted to make something that was good enough to get us started we picked up a Canon G7 X.
It had decent specs, a selfie screen so you could see yourself ...
