Quick Picks: Top 3 Best Point & Shoot Cameras For Youtubers
Quick Picks: Best Video Quality Cameras For HD Youtube Videos
I thought I needed a new camera right away, but didn’t really want to buy a clunky DSLR that had a thousand and one functions I’d never use. I’m not a photographer, and I don’t plan on taking up the hobby. Nonetheless, I set my sights on a Canon G7X, which is a point and shoot but has a huge lens that lets in a ton of light… coupled with Canon’s auto focus feature that’s incredible, you can get pro quality videos with zero experience.
Right before I went to purchase this camera, I experimented with some DIY style clamp photography lights that I made from cheap Walmart components. Surprisingly, the difference, even on an iphone, was a massive increase in quality from being able to control the lighting consistently… So much so, that I decided to wait and experiment with pro quality lights and the iphone 6 for a little while before upgrading my camera.
I have to tell you, the results have been staggering! I’m telling you this first, before we get to the youtube camera recommendations you’ve been looking for, because it’s highly likely that you just need a set of these lights, instead of a whole new camera. While this might not be true for everyone (for instance if you have a shitty camera there’s only so much lighting can improve), but if you have at least a modern iphone or a point and shoot, you will be amazed at how much your video quality improves from the lights I’m about to show you.
These are the lights I use everyday, and they are absolutely amazeballs!

The Best Cameras For Youtubers (And which cheap camera to buy if you’re just starting out vs the best quality)
My all time favorite camera for Youtubing is hands down the Canon G7X! I know most people will be looking more toward a DSLR video camera at a price range of over $500, but for those of us that are not looking to complicate the hell out of our operation, the G7X is the best picture quality you’re going to get for around $600 bucks… and worth every damn cent!!! Here are 4 other vlog cameras for sale on Amazon if you budget is lower or higher than 500-600 bucks.
