A good camera gets you a great image!

From DLSRs to action cams, there are lots of options to satisfy your needs as a blogger, but here are some pointers to get you on your way:

DSLRs provides the top versatility when it comes to capturing both video and photos. If you use a huge amount of multimedia or want to combine vlogging and photography, pick a camera that can do both well.

Action cams are the best for bloggers who plan on doing video blogging on the move, regardless if it’s depicting their adventures or putting viewers in a first-person point of view.

Cameras that need interchangeable lenses aren’t for those that scare easily. If you’re a newbie, stick to a camera that’s affordable and simple before spending money on expensive equipment that you might not use or need.

Decide on your needs first. Depending on the type of camera shooting you’ll be doing, you might want to get a tripod, a camera with enhanced audio low-light or recording abilities. Take a moment and really think about how you want to use video to enrich your blog and then find a camera that can satisfy your needs.

With these tips, it should be a lot simpler to find a camera that’ll be best for you. Here’s your list of recommendations.

Top Video Blog Websites

When you are ready to put your video blog on your website, you’ll find plenty of paid, free sites to pick from. The site you pick is decided by your expectations for your blog, like whether you plan to privatize the blog, add photos and texts, or whether it’ll be a video-only blog. Most websites offer analytics and have a mobile app or optimized version for mobile devices. If this is critical to you, verify it with your host.

If you want to publish video only, your video blog website can be as simple as a channel on YouTube or Vimeo, where you put videos you make along with videos you like that are put up by others.
