Cameras for Youtube and Social Influencers
Have you ever picked up a new camera and immediately felt intimidated by all the buttons and dials on it? Did this make you feel like you were never going to learn to make your own videos?
Manufacturers have gotten better about making simple and effective cameras for the average user. You don’t have to be scared to use a higher quality camera for your videos or photos. Many YouTube personalities start with smartphones because of convenience. Then many move into larger more advanced cameras that allow for more features and better editing capabilities.
Cameras for Youtube content
Many users just don’t know where to start when it comes to selecting a new camera. We have put together some recommendations on cameras for social media influencers. These will help you get started in researching a new camera. There are some simple questions that can help get you going.
Think about how you will use your camera
Will this be used for mostly video or photography? Yes, there are subtle differences, but overall it is good to have an idea of the main uses for your camera.
If you want to use the camera for video, you will want a camera that comes with a zoom lens so you can get close-up and far shots without having to move so much. Photographers will want an interchangeable lens camera so they can use many styles of lenses depending on the type of shoot.
Keep a budget in mind
Newer cameras will run from $300 and up. You can find great second hand options online with places such as Facebook marketplace or EBay. If you prefer a new camera, I would recommend checking out Amazon. They have a large selection of cameras and you can be protected from fraud with amazon Prime.
Always keep in mind cameras are great tools, but you will need to leverage your creativity to get great results. Also, you will need to make sure you have a computer (MAC or Windows) that can handle the large footage files so you can edit your projects together.
