Panasonic Lumix GX85

Panasonic has plenty of experience with advanced compact cameras, and the Lumix GX85 (sold as GX80 outside the United States) is one of the company’s finest products to date. It comes with a 12-32 mm 2-axis optically stabilized lens and features a large sensor with 5-axis image stabilization. The two independent stabilization systems ensure fantastic low-light performance without the bulk of a DSLR.

The Lumix GX85 allows you to choose from a wide range of lenses, just like a DSLR, thanks to its Micro Four Thirds lens mount standard. At the moment, Panasonic offers 27 lenses, but you can also use lenses from various third-party manufacturers.

With a press of a dedicated button, you can record 4K video and capture even the smallest details both during the day and at night. The tilt and touch display helps you see what you’re recording and control the multitude of features the Lumix GX85 offers.

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II

If you don’t see yourself buying multiple lenses, the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II is an excellent alternative to the more versatile Panasonic Lumix GX85. The G7 X Mark II offers a focal length of 24 mm to 100 mm and great brightness even when fully zoomed in. The camera records Full HD video at 60 frames per second and outputs it in the convenient MP4 video format, which is accepted by all popular video editing software products.

Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, you can transfer videos and images from the camera to your computer wirelessly, and the G7 X Mark II will even let you convert RAW images right in the camera. The large tilt-type touchscreen LCD makes it easy to take selfies and compose creative shots. There are eight pre-configured picture styles to choose from, but you can also adjust individual exposure settings manually to achieve any look you desire.

Canon EOS 77D

Some vloggers want the best video quality they can get, and DSLR cameras are an easy choice for them. This Canon EOS 77D kit has everything you need to get started, including the Canon EOS 77D camera body, two lenses, backpack, fast memory card, flash diffuser, several lens filters, and various other miscellaneous accessories.

What makes the Canon EOS 77D so great for vlogging is its Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus technology. This sensor-based, phase detection autofocus technology is designed to provide smooth, high-performance focus tracking when capturing video or shooting still photos in Live View mode. The Canon EOS 77D also has Wi-Fi connectivity for wireless file transfers, and its DIGIC 7 image processor can record Full HD video at 60 frames per second.

GoPro Hero6 Black

Not all vloggers spend their days drinking overpriced coffee, gossiping with friends, and opening packages. Some like to go where other vloggers don’t dare to go, even if it means getting wet and dirty. For more action-oriented vlogging, we recommend the GoPro Hero6 Black, a popular action camera that records in 4K at 60 frames per second and in Full HD at 240 frames per second.

The GoPro Hero6 Black feature’s GoPro’s most advanced image stabilization system to date, and it also comes with a brand-new user interface that allows you to intuitively zoom with touch gestures. There’s a wide range of accessories available for GoPro cameras, so you can attach the GoPro Hero6 Black to just about anything you want, from your bike to your car.

iPhone X

Despite the huge selection of vlogging-friendly cameras, many vloggers prefer to use their smartphone instead. And if there is one smartphone that’s almost ideal for vlogging, it has to be the iPhone X. Besides being an excellent smartphone and a beautiful piece of industrial design, the iPhone X is also a fantastic camera. It can record 4K video at 60 frames per second or slow things down and shoot 240 frames per second in Full HD—that’s just as good as the GoPro Hero6 Black.

Although the iPhone X has a built-in image stabilization system, your best option is a handheld gimbal like the DJI Osmo Mobile. With it, you can create mesmerizing cinematic shots that look straight out of a high-budget Hollywood movie.
