Deciding which video camera to buy can be difficult. There are so many options to choose from, each with a set of increasingly enticing specs. But just because you can buy a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro doesn’t mean you necessarily should. There are a number of factors to bear in mind, from image stabilisation to dynamic range, to lens choice. Plus, you need to ask yourself, what am I going to use this video camera for?
Best Video Cameras for YouTube
For YouTube and other streaming platforms, you want a camera that is as versatile as your content. YouTube can be a really great place to get experimental with your filmmaking and share your creative journey with the world. If you stream your content straight to your audience check out our Webcam options too.
Best Video Cameras for Action Sports
Action sports require Action Cameras. Their small size can be easily handheld or attached to a chest or helmet for a thrill-filled first-person perspective. Whether you are a BMX-er, skier, snowboarder, skateboarder, diver, or throwing yourself out of a plane – we have the action cam for you.
Things to look out for: high-axis stabilisation is the key difference between a good action cam and a great one. Be sure to check that spec before making your decision.
Best Video Cameras for Vlogging
Showing the world your view is highly personal, and your camera needs to reflect this. The best vlogging cameras are small so you can fit them in a bag or a large pocket for on-the-go spontaneous shooting. They need to have great axis stabilisation for shake-free, steady recording.
Things to look out for: adding accessories like a shooting grip and on-camera microphone will take your vlogs to the next level.
Best Video Cameras for Low Light
For low light video recording, the main specifications you need to consider are ISO sensitivity and dynamic range. ISO affects how the sensor deals with low light, and how much grain you will see in the shot. Cameras with a large ISO range are better at reducing the grain and producing a clean look.
Things to look out for: a large dynamic range will mean the camera picks up on more detail in dark areas, which is better for post-production editing.
Best Video Cameras for Beginners
Traditional camcorders are a great choice for beginner filmmakers looking to capture memories of family, friends, holidays and more. They are compact, easy to control with auto settings, and even easier to shoot with. Pack any of these cameras with you and you can capture stunning footage at affordable prices.
Things to look out for: check the optical zoom of the camera for the most range of shots to play with.
Best Video Cameras for Filmmaking
As a pro filmmaker, the key thing to consider is where your film is going to end up. This will determine whether you need to look at a 4K or 6K sensor. 6K gives you more options but the file sizes are substantially larger. Also consider the ecosystem of lenses and accessories available to that camera, does it already fit in with your kit or are you going to need to invest further to properly spec out your setup?
Best Cameras for 360º Video
360º video cameras are the newest in film technology. Now they are readily available with easy-to-use features that can capture stunning images and video in 360-degrees. These cameras have so many applications from estate agent photography to immersive action films.
Things to look out for: make sure you have software that can edit the footage after your shoot. Many 360º cameras have their own dedicated editing suite.
