Best Video Cameras for YouTube and Vlogging

The following are BVC’s Top 5 Picks for best vlogging video cameras with video test samples shown to give you the best idea of the video quality and audio quality you are looking for.

Just click on each link below to read my review of each camera and see the video test footage of each.

 (Prices listed are from as of June 8, 2012)


1.  Panasonic Lumix ZS15 and ZS20  $220|$285

2.  Panasonic HMC SD90   $599

3.  Canon PowerShot SX230   $239|$247   (pink|black)

4.  Canon Vixia HF R20 and R21    $379 | $478

5.  Canon PowerShot SD1400   $189 | $199    (black|pink)


The Lumix comes in at Number 1 for Spring 2012, but they’re all quite the favorites so far this year.

Choosing the best camera for youtube, vlogging or your business marketing can be a time consuming process.  My job with this website is to help you narrow down your choices as I was in the same boat just 2 years ago.

Panasonic and Canon have always been favorite choices.  I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the above models or its “new” equivalent as in the case of the SX230.  Canon has now released SX260 which I have yet to test.

If you have any questions about any of the above vlogging cameras or even your own suggestions and experiences with a particular model I welcome your comments.
