Starting a youtube channel is a mountain to climb in itself, with all the headache of finding a catchy name (not cheesy), niche, unique video ideas, and finally editing the video to cut the “I’m so dumb!” part. Then comes THE most important thing – Camera, without which, you are out of the competition already. That time is long gone when youtube “stars” used to make videos with their phones and digicams, and still got thousands of views and likes. Today, people prefer watching HD videos more than low-quality ones. So, in order to shoot an awesome HD video and get more people to watch it and like it, you need a good quality camera.

I’ve compiled a list of some of the best cameras for Youtubers, which could help you in choosing the right camera for vlogging or making sit-down videos.

Canon EOS 700D
If your everyday life is not as exciting as IIsuperwomanII’s, you won’t be making many Vlogs. But don’t be disheartened, you can still make sit-down videos, tutorials, review videos, short films, etc. To make this kind of videos, you should definitely consider buying a DSLR, than a camcorder or digicam. Canon EOS 700D is a new, technically advanced camera, with amazing video quality and really affordable price.
There is not much difference between Nikon D3300 and Canon EOS 700D other than that it’s comparatively cheaper than the EOS 700D. So, if you are a little short on budget, go for Nikon.
If you are an Adrenaline junkie, this is the camera for you. This GoPro features a built-in touch display, the first ever in any GoPro, which makes all the functions pretty convenient. It captures 1080p60 and 720p120 videos with amazing quality. The features list also includes waterproof up to 40 meters. So, if you are planning to showcase your surfing skills or make some snowboard tutorials, go for the GoPro Hero4. However, if you are on a budget, go for the cheaper versions.
