If you’re looking for a point and shoot camera that doesn’t break the bank and has all the features of a great vlogging camera then this might be one of the best canon cameras for you. Although it’s a slightly older camera it definitely stands up there with some of the best cameras and the specs let you see why.
Let’s have a look at why this is an ideal camera for starting out on youtube.
1080p Full HD video
High quality video is a must for any budding youtuber and this camera delivers 1080p full HD video capture. One of the added features of this camera is the ability to choose whether you shoot at 24p, 30p or 60p meaning you have so much more control over the number of frames captured per second depending on the situation and the type of footage you want to create.
Fancy that buttery smooth slo-mo video then shoot at 60p and then slow the video down in your editing software.
This camera gives you all that control to be much more creative with your content.
It’s incredibly lightweight
Weighing just 8.6oz (0.5lbs), the Canon SX720HS is really light making it fantastic for taking out and about for filming on the go or when you fancy shooting a travel vlog. This camera certainly won’t leave you with a dead arm if you’re filming yourself on the move.
It’s a great size for slipping into your pocket, bag or just generally being easy to carry round and not causing you too much trouble on figuring out how you’re going to store it when you need your hands free.
Good focus abilities
As with almost all canon cameras of the last few years this one has great focus abilities allowing you to be sure that you’re sharp when filming. With built in face detection included in this camera it should do a pretty good job at keeping the important parts in focus.
As this is a budget range camera it is lacking in some of the abilities that you would find handy in a vlogging camera such as a flip screen that some its upgraded siblings like the G7X Mark ii have, but if that’s something that you can live without and you’re looking for a cheap but good video camera then this is a pretty solid choice for starting out on youtube.
