We’ve recently started vlogging, check out our channel Gator School, we started out using our phone. It wasn’t the best option, phone quality isn’t perfect and we were quickly running into storage issues. So it was time to look at upgrading to a camera. It didn’t take long to notice that almost all YouTubers are using the same little point and shoot camera to film their vlogs.
The Canon SX730 comes in at a price point just under $400 and it’s perfect for vlogging. The HD quality is perfect for YouTube, it doesn’t shoot in 4K, but 4K isn’t really necessary for vlogging. I love that it’s compact and light. I can put it in a cheap little shock proof camera case
The real reason why most vloggers use this camera? The 3 inch tilt LCD screen, it’s basically made for vlogging. The screen tilts so you can see yourself and get the best vlogging angles, it’s easy enough to flip one handed so you can go from front facing to rear facing without a hassle.
