Welcome future (or current) video creators!
I wanted to create a blog post on how to select the perfect camera equipment for you.
My clients who are looking to shoot their own video and video blogs ask me frequently
“What kind of Camera should I use.”
And, of course it all depends on lots of things so in turn I ask them (and you because you’re reading)
If you’re just starting out with low to no budget my advice is
“Don’t buy anything new.”
You can shoot video blogs, social media live video, video podcasts and also things like testimonials and on-the-fly content right from your phone, tablet or laptop.
With the right stability, light and sound enhancing equipment you can create video on the go with almost any of your personal devices.
If you’d like a little more flexibility when using a camera on your desktop or laptop, there’s external USB hookup Cameras that will clip nicely to these devices

Giving you a better flexibility for your stationary Desktop or Laptop. I’d show you mine but my Daughter borrowed it to do her Facebook lives. Sheesh…Kids!
If you want more and have a moderate budget your best step up is a DSLR Camera.
It looks like a regular 35 mm Camera but some have amazing sensors giving you beautiful crisp footage. They are light and compact allowing you to take it almost anywhere.
The only downfall to the DSLR camera is that their onboard microphone is usually not stellar. And you’ll not be able to capture audio farther than about 6 feet even with a shotgun mic attached. For example if you’re setting up to shoot yourself on stage this isn’t a great way to go.
The better solution to capture onstage performances is a prosumer Camera or Camcorder with the ability to hook up a wireless lapel microphone (the little clip on microphones)
My favourite brand is Canon. Of the 3 Brands I’ve used it captures the richest colours. My camcorder is a few years old but the model closest to the one I love is this one https://amzn.to/2roujaW
And that’s it for my recommendations on your best video cam.
