Do you want to start your own Vlog ( VideoÂ Log )?Â Who knows maybe you are the nextÂ Christine Gambito of HappySlip.com, a popular Pinay YouTube Celebrity. If you’ve always had an interesting subject to film and want the whole world to know about it through YouTube, why spend too much on a video camera?
There are plenty of good ones out there that you can use and you donâ€™t have to skimp on the nice features, either. Here are a few of the cheap yet very functional video cameras you might want to pick up next time you’re in a gadget store:
Want YouTube superstardom? This camera understands you more than you know. After all, it was created with a Casio’s exclusive YouTube capture mode, called BEST SHOT. This feature lets you shoot video footage and then save it as a movie using the best and highest quality size and setting designed for YouTube use. You can do that using 8.1 megapixels and an H.264 compression feature. And the price isnâ€™t too bad either. This camera retails for about $230.
The flip function in this cheap video camera comes from its USB connection that’s built into the unit. Just flip it out and you can send your photos to your computer in seconds. That function lets you edit, store and share your photos and video, especially on YouTube. The camera is pretty cheap, starting at just $119.
The video quality on this camera is excellent, especially for its price range (about $130 to $360). It has a 35x zoom lens, great color reproduction and joystick control. Just make sure to shoot with enough lighting, though, since this camera doesnâ€™t work too well in dim or low-light conditions.
