The best cameras for vlogging have never been more plentiful or affordable, meaning the barrier to start vlogging has never been lower. We've put together this list to help everyone find the right vlogging camera for them, which is why we've included everything from beginner-friendly models to some of the absolute best consumer video cameras you can buy. 

The first thing to suss out is what type of camera you want to use. Mirrorless cameras and DSLRs offer the advantage of allowing you to change lenses, and generally have larger sensors for better video quality – but all this comes at a cost. Compact cameras, meaning cameras with fixed lenses, can provide a simpler all-in-one experience if you don't mind the restriction. Plus, don't count out GoPro-style action cameras, as these can be taken to places other models can't. We've included all types here.

Jon is a freelance writer and journalist who covers photography, art, technology, and the intersection of all three. When he's not scouting out news on the latest gadgets, he likes to play around with film cameras that were manufactured before he was born. To that end, he never goes anywhere without his Olympus XA2, loaded with a fresh roll of Kodak (Gold 200 is the best, since you asked). Jon is a regular contributor to Creative Bloq, and has also written for in Digital Camera World, Black + White Photography Magazine, Photomonitor, Outdoor Photography, Shortlist and probably a few others he's forgetting.
