Ultimate YouTube and vlogging camera setup (best YouTube cameras)


It takes a decent amount of gear to get a YouTube channel off the ground. Recently I wrote a post called Vlogging for beginners: your first 5 equipment purchases which breaks down a lot of what you’ll need to get started ASIDE from a good camera. I also wrote a post a few months back detailing a few affordable 4K cameras which is worth checking out.

You COULD have one camera that you handle your entire workflow on, but that’s sort of the minimum viable entry point (and what 99% of YouTubers do). If you want to increase your channel/video engagement on YouTube (including the all-important watch time), keep things visually interesting by mixing up the type of footage and angles! And that is exactly what the cameras below will let you do.
