CANON CAMERAS FOR VLOGGING-BUDGET MODELS

Updated: Nov 1






While choosing a camera for vlogging beginners, the first thing that comes to mind is whether it has a flip screen or swivel screen, and is it affordable enough for a beginner? It's a matter of great satisfaction that nowadays there is no dearth of such cameras. Such types of cameras from all known brands are available online at e-commerce sites as well as on the respective manufacturers' sites. The only thing is the purchaser has to select one comparing the needed features and specifications.


Happily like Sony, Canon is another leader in the imaging world and has had an unblemished reputation in the photography world since the era of reel photography. Even after the onset of digital photography Canon has been able to manufacture a large no. of both budget and premium models. Some models are so attractive that some photographers and YouTubers are Canon fans all through.


Over the years the camera users have graduated from still photography to videography. Observing the increasing trend of YouTubers and vloggers the camera makers have begun to build more cameras with flip screens than with fixed screens. Because a flip screen camera can do dual jobs like a video camera as well as a still camera. But don't be in doubt that you cannot do vlogging with a fixed screen camera. You can very well do it in slightly inconvenient and indirect ways. And in comparison to Flip-screen camera shooting these indirect methods might be felt cumbersome.


It will be no wonder that in the coming days the fixed screen cameras might be the things of the past. And at least the flip screen on cameras will be a common feature. Because flip screen cameras are becoming more and more versatile. These are budget-friendly too. On the other hand, the top-end cameras have multi-functional swivel screens, additional inputs but are premium. These are practically beyond the reach of new YouTubers and new vloggers. Yet, they are never getting themselves stuck. The large base of the flip screen and relatively less expensive models are the virtual rescuer and crowd pullers.


So it will be worthwhile to do a detailed analysis of the various models in the Canon stable so that one can make an informed decision to zero in on one.
