With one of the best camera for vlogging, you get a on-stop shop for serious video creation. However, picking the right vlogging camera is actually a slightly complex thing, as there are quite a few boxes it has to tick. It needs a powerful suite of video options, that's a given – however, given that many vloggers are one-man-bands, a good vlogging camera also needs to be portable and straightfoward enough that one person can operate it.

Still, there are plenty of different cameras that fit this description. We've gone into more detail on our criteria in our 'How to choose' section at the bottom of this page, but our list includes mirrorless cameras, fixed-lens compacts, action cameras and dedicated gimbal cameras – all of which will get the job of vlogging done in exemplary fashion, producing great-looking videos with crisp, clear audio.
