Vlogging is a word made by a combination of two words Video and Blogging. Yes it's weird we agree, but there are thousands who are actually making a career our of vlogging all around the world. As we become lazier and lazier to read and learn something we have vloggers who enable us to stay that way, we're not saying that's a bad thing, it saves time and all that. Popular video hosting websites like YouTube, Vimeo and Dailymotion have been their workplace for years now. If you too want to become a vlogger and have something to tell, teach or reveal to the world all you need is some good equipment and about an hour's time off from your daily routine. As easy as it is to become a vlogger, the equipment you use to reach your audience takes utmost priority. And by the equipment we mean, the camera used. There are way too many types of cameras to discuss that issue at length now, but we have listed some of the best and cheap vlogging camera that are available for a reasonable amount of money. You be the judge of the best vlogging camera from the list.

1. Canon 60D

 

 

 

Price: $334 (body only)

Sensor: 18 MP APS-C CMOS

Video: 1080p HD

ISO: 100-6400 (& expandable up to 12800)

Battery: 990 shots

 

Having personally used this camera, I can vouch for the quality and ease of use that this DSLR gives to the users. It has an overhead digital display hat gives all the essential info to the user such as the ISO, aperture, shutter speed and exposure. It has a 3-inch wide digital display LCD that flips around fully with a wireless shutter control.

 

 

 

 

2. Sony a6500

 

 

 

Price: $1,390

Sensor: 24.2 MP APS-C Exmor sensor

Video: 4K recording (also 6K - oversampling)

ISO: up to 51,200

Battery: 650 shots

 

This is probably the best vlogging camera or the best vlogging camera for youtube with a huge 24MP sensor and what's better is that it can shoot videos in 6K resolution, something that most cameras cannot do as of now. It is also a vlogging camera with flip screen, ideal for making videos of your own without any supervision. Lastly, it is compatible with a large array of lenses.

Price: $679

Sensor: 20.2 1 MP CMOS

Video: 1080p at 60fps

ISO: 3200

Battery: 265 shots

 

Even though this camera doesn't have an explicit mic port, it is the vlogging camera that YouTubers use, many of them. As it is a compact camera, not really a simple point-and-shoot, but a mid-range camera that a beginner can start things with. 

 

 

 

 

4. Canon EOS Rebel T6i

 

 

 

Price: $749

Sensor: 24.2 MP CMOS (APS-C)

The Rebel series from Canon really shone in terms of quality and in turn sales! This DSLR with a massive 24 MP sensor, along with Wifi and NFC sure packs a punch. With an ISO expandability that goes up to 25600, indoor shooting (what most vloggers do) should be a breeze.

Battery: 250 shots

 

Another compact point-and-shoot, with interchangeable lens, is the EOS M3. It does offer some options as far as manual controls are concerned, coupled with this is the ability to quickly focus on the subject and Wifi & NFC capabilities. As far as the lens are concerned the camera supports EF-M lenses and the full line of EF and EF-S Lenses (but a Mount Adapter - EF-EOS - is required to do so).

Let's move away for a while, from the DSLRs and the point-and-shoots, for we have a device that is used exclusively to make videos. The HC-V770 camcorder comes with an excellent 20X zoom, wireless twin camera function, and Wifi and NFC capabilities. It also has 3 different prices for 3 different models with varying capabilities. This is truly a device to be considered while making a decision on buying a vlogging camera

Price: $345

Sensor: 12.1 MP CMOS

ISO: 80-12800

An excellent point-and-shoot with DSLR-like capabilities. Of course, it doesn't have manual operations or a flip screen but it more than makes up for the shortcomings, with the Wifi& NFC capabilities, 1080p recording at a fluent 60 frames per second, image stabilization and a wide angle lens. We call it the perfect camera for beginners.
