2.  Canon Powershot ELPH 180

 

The Canon Powershot ELPH 180 is a 20-megapixel camera that features Canon’s CCD sensor. It comes with an 8x optical zoom lens with an aperture range of f/3.2 to f/6.9.

All of this makes this camera a fantastic beginner’s camera for those just starting in the vlogging world.


 

 

3. Panasonic Lumix G85

 

 

This is a mirrorless camera with the ability to capture 4K videos. In many markets, Panasonic sells it under the names G80, G81, and G8. Some of its laudable features are a magnesium alloy front plate, an electromagnetic shutter, a 5-axis in-camera IS, and an electronic viewfinder. The camera uses a 16MP chip with AA filters. The Panasonic Lumix G85 is also weather-sealed, a feature that adds to its overall life. All in all, this is probably the best camera amongst its peers by Panasonic.


 

 

4. Fujifilm X-A5

 

 

If you are looking for a mirrorless camera that won’t burn a hole in your pocket, consider the Fujifilm X-A5. Fujifilm has been a pioneer in the area of mirrorless cameras and has some beautiful mirrorless cameras to offer. This camera by Fujifilm features a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor and Fujifilm’s X-mount lenses. It also supports Phase Detect autofocus, thereby allowing for better subject tracking.

5. Sony Cyber-shot RX 100 IV

 

The Sony cyber-shot range has been in the market for a while now and has managed to create an enormous fan following in this time. This camera is the perfect choice for those who do not want to carry a bulky DSLR or CRC all the time. The camera has a pixel count of 20.1 million and features Sony’s latest Exmor RS design sensor. Sony Cyber-shot RX 100 IV also features the Bionz processor designed for super-high speeds and has improved autofocus speed.

6. DJI Osmo Pocket

 

This is the perfect camera/gadget for maestros of the vlogging world. The Osmo Pocket is only 4.8-inches tall and four ounces in weight, which makes it an ideal camera for those who want to record videos while indulging in various activities. It features a 1 and 2/3-inch sensor. This is a powerful camera capable of capturing 12MP images and 4k videos in fantastic quality. You can attach it to a smartphone if you want access to DJI’s memo app. However, one of the most significant weaknesses of this drone-style camera is its battery. The battery doesn’t last long, especially if you start taking 4k videos.


 

 

7. Canon Powershot G7 X Mark ii

 

The new Canon Powershot G7 X Mark ii features a one-inch type sensor which enables excellent image quality even in low light.

The touchscreen is a nice addition and works well.
