Best camera for YouTube videos

How to choose the best camera for YouTube

If you’re just starting out on YouTube, you may be wondering – how do I choose a good, versatile camera among hundreds of models, widely available on the market? The answer is simple: first, determine your budget, your needs for additional accessories, and your video format. For example, if you’re making a video blog, you don’t need that $3k full-frame camera – you’ll be much better off with a decent smartphone. But again, if you aim at professional production, involving interviews and such, you may wanna consider something more serious than an iPhone.

So, in this article we’ll take a look at several cameras, grouped by budget and functionality, to choose the best one for you.

Filmmaking apps for Android

Hey there!
Have you ever used your Android phone to shoot videos? Yeah? Well, so have I. I’ve got this LG L9 phone and it’s doing a pretty good job at recording footage, but one thing that’s been bugging me for a while is continuous auto-focus and auto-exposure. These are two awful things, apart from Auto White Balance, that I can’t stand seeing in my footage. So, I’ve decided to check out a bunch of camcorder apps out there on Google Play and here’s what I’ve picked.
