If you're tuning in for the first time...Welcome Friend!
The last few weeks, I challenged you to get started making videos. 1. Get over your perfectionism and procrastination with video blogging. 2. Start to develop quick & easy content for your video blog.
We've talked a lot about content creation, procrastination and getting over yourself. Today I'm going to talk a little bit about the cameras I use and what I'd recommend you use.
What camera should I use?
To start (and for the video challenges) - Use the camera that you already have!
For many of you - that’s your cell phone. I recorded this week's blog video on my iPhone8. That’s my primary camera. It's the easiest to use and it's always around me.
But I want a REAL camera!
Okay, so you're ready to invest in your video blog. That's fair.
Here it is, a good vlogging camera for beginners - the Canon Rebel T6i or T7i. (I use the T6i but they have a newer model)
It's easy to learn and....it has a FLIP SCREEN! This makes it easy to self record and know you are lookin' good.
Canon Rebel T6i Pros:
Easy to use: Video mode is a default start function and the record start/stop is right next to your view finder.
You can hook in external audio.
Use any canon lens.
It also records to the SD cards many of us know and love already.
Price point: Around $600
with kits under $1000.00
Start small and work your way up. This is more about having fun and enjoying the process. If people get to know your personality, you will get better at the technical parts.
Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel and click notifications to be on top of these video blog challenges! I'm still getting started and you should to.
And if you need some extra TLC, let's chat about your video ideas.
