By seeing the soar in travel vlogging many youngsters started dreaming about the career in travel vlogging. Now, those days are gone where people start with a normal phone and hits millions of views. This is a trend in the video industry where people want to watch professional videos and well-edited content.
To start as a pro some pro accessories and the pro camera is required. Today, we are not going to talk about accessories, this is just a camera focused article. So, let’s get started with the cameras for travel vloggers.

This Canon’s DSLR solves the problem of poor autofocusing with dual pixel CMOS autofocus. It has the capability of much faster and more effective autofocus in movie capture, especially when it comes to tracking movie subjects. It’s touchscreen also facilitate simple point touch to any point of the scene you want to focus.
EOS 77D 5 axis sensor-shift image stabilization, the camera still depends on in-lens, optical stabilization for stills capture, but ‘Digital IS’ comes into play while shooting movies.
3. Fujifilm X-A5

This is a wonderful compact camera, this is the mirrorless system camera body and it is just 40mm deep, looks slim when fitted with the optional 15-45mm kit lens, which has a powerful zoom facility and a retractable design which is ideal for video capture. The camera also features a full 180 degrees rotatable LCD flip screen which is ideal for putting yourself in the shot. Its touchscreen plays a crucial role in pointing out moving subjects on which you want to focus.
The camera also features advanced video features ‘high speed movies’ with slow-motion playback and 4k ultra-high-definition capture. But here comes the catch, 4k movies have a maximum frame rate of just 15 fps. So, you can get detailed but jerky video, defeating the object sometimes.
So these were the three best vlogging cameras for travelers. And there are a lot of things which people prefer while going for a camera. But the most important thing which matters a lot is video quality, so here I just want to say that, whatever type of camera you go for, just keep eyes on whether it is capable of delivering the good quality video, Full HD (1080p) or even 4k ultra-high-definition is always preferred. Both the formats are supported by the biggest video platform youtube. So, this was just about video quality and additionally, you have to also take care of built-in wifi which can be a big bonus for you. And also tilting or fully articulating LCD monitor screen will be extremely helpful for putting yourself into the camera frame.
Think of all these recommended features whenever you buy a camera for your travel vlogging. Compare the rates on different e-commerce websites before going for a deal, it will save your valuable money.
