Having a vlog (video blog) is a great way for people to really get to know you without having to leave home, from the comfort of a computer or mobile device. In order to make a vlog, you need a camera that meets certain characteristics.
Whether the idea is to become an influencer with thousands of followers or you just want to have fun documenting your hobbies or your day-to-day life, there are many ways to be creative and show your way of seeing life.
One of the best tips when starting a vlog is to be authentic, friendly and creative, so your message or whatever you want to project will make it easier for you to find a way to reach more people, but also to use the right camera.
The aforementioned will be different on every specific case, but in terms of cameras, there’s 2 models that have been recommended for quite some time now as part of the best cameras for bloggers in the market, and both are from the authority brand Canon, a true leader in comprehensive digital imaging solutions.
The EOS M50 and PowerShot G7 X Mark II are two fun, easy-to-use cameras that bring fun and original ideas to life while providing the video quality and creative control required for a vlog.
Both Canon models have integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, technology that allows you to share videos and photos instantly, transferring them wirelessly to any type of mobile device, to be shared on social networks in real-time.
The EOS M50 was developed with videos and vlogs in mind. This camera offers up to 143 autofocus points (depending on the lens in use) with Dual Pixel AF, which features face and object tracking.
The M50 is ideal for shooting in low light. When shooting in 4K the camera offers a sensitivity of up to ISO 6400 meaning you can capture clear images with accurate colors. In case you do not need to record in 4K, this equipment allows you to record with HD quality, which increases the ISO range, from 100 to 25,600, which means being able to record in the moonlight and still be able to see your face.
One of the biggest advantages of the M50 is the fully articulating Vari-Angle screen, which can be quickly flipped over and framed on oneself, allowing the precise composition to always be in control of the content narrative. This fun camera also features a built-in stereo microphone, plus a 3.5mm stereo mini-jack that will allow you to connect an external microphone.
The PowerShot G7 X Mark II is a pocketable compact camera with a large sensor and a 24-100mm (equivalent) f/1.8-2.8 lens. Its combination of lightweight and large sensors makes it an ideal camera for vloggers. Its lens is incredibly fast, so you’ll never miss an important moment. It also has a flip-up screen, allowing you to achieve the perfect frame.
The G7 X Mark II works great in all light conditions, whether it’s bright sunshine or a lamplit room, making it a perfect camera for vlogging. This device has an excellent face detection and tracking mode, which means you can move freely, raise your hands, dance in front of the camera, or tell a story in an emotional way, without having to worry about your face getting out of the way.
With this small but mighty camera, you can shoot high-quality videos, even at full zoom or with the camera panning, thanks to 5-axis Advanced Dynamic IS, which counteracts camera shake.
Now that you have the necessary information, it’s time to start thinking about the script for the first video blog. Lights, camera, vlog.
