We are looking at my top Three YouTube cameras that would be perfect for your YouTube channel or really any social media platform whether you are a vlogger an influencer an educator or a cinematic filmmaker I totally have you covered with this list.

Best budget YouTube cameras 2021

So the first YOU TUBE camera on this list is the

  1. CANON 90D

Canon 90d which will be perfect for YouTube channels and yes I did change my shirt this camera was made with filmmakers and youtubers in mind has everything you would want in a camera like this. a swivel screen great auto focus mic jack clearance big battery 4k with no crop slow motion and a lot more specs wise this camera does full hd at 23 frames per second and 60 frames per second and 4k at 30 frames per second with no crop plus a slow-motion mode where it does 120 frames per second at full hd personally I think that covers all the frame rates all the resolutions that a youtuber

Would want also let’s not forget about canon’s colour science is absolutely perfect the reds are fiery the blues are the perfect hue of blue the greens are nice and saturated and skin looks amazing

The great thing about canon cameras is you can pretty much make anybody look attractive because they always manage skin tones really really well if you look at Sony cameras a lot of times people end up looking purple kind of pale or sometimes even a bit too orange the canon cameras make everybody look attractive.

So if you’re doing kind of a YouTube channel where you’re sitting in front of the camera talking all the time vlogging you want to get a canon camera because it’s going to manage your skin tones really really well and that applies to the other canon cameras on this list and personally i feel like the colour science with canon cameras is so good

That you can put this stuff up on YouTube without any colour correction or just minor tweaks i probably would not put a Sony camera up on YouTube without some colour grading

And of course, this camera has canon’s dual pixel autofocus which is fantastic it has amazing face tracking and object tracking so regardless of what kind of content you’re shooting it’s going to do a very very good job

Keeping up with you and making sure things are sharp and in focus also the autofocus poles are very smooth and organic when it goes from object to object it almost feels like a person’s changing focus and not a robot and that way it helps your viewers stay more in the moment however not everything with this camera is perfect this camera only has a low level ipb codec which is a lower bitrate codec and it doesn’t have a cinema profile this camera is really made for someone that’s turning out a lot of content.

  1. And the next camera on the list is the Sony a7iii . this camera does full hd at both 23 and 60 frames per second and has a slow-motion mode at 120 frames per second which is pretty in line with the canon 90d however this is a full-frame camera whereas the 90d is an aps-c camera and it does 4k at both 23 and 30 frames per second with no crop and just a quick side note.

Guys this is a full-frame camera which has a wider field of view and a shallower depth of field which gives you a much more cinematic image compared to the 90d which is a aps-c size sensor

The images out of this camera are very sharp highly detailed in both hd and 4k there’s something about Sony cameras that really make the image pop especially on mobile screens and this camera comes with 10 different cinematic profiles so you can really push and pull your colours and really create a cinematic grade with your image however the standard colours.

Right out of the camera are definitely not the greatest this is definitely a camera you’re gonna have to do a lot of tweaking before you throw on youtube but if you’re the type of person that really wants to create and finesse a cinematic look and do heavy heavy color grading this camera will not let you down

The auto focusing system in this camera is definitely set it and forget it you can absolutely put this camera on a gimbal and even in fast motion it will intelligently track objects for you sony may not have the greatest colour science but when it comes to things like autofocus they are literally five years ahead of the industry two things that really set this camera apart are the in-body stabilization and the low-light capabilities.

  1. Next up we have the canon g7x mark iii i wanted to give you guys a camera that was small and compact but still gave you all the options of a big dslr this camera does full hd at both 24 frames per second 60 frames per second all the way up to 120 frames per second

Which is pretty impressive for a small compact camera it also does 4k at both 24 and 30 frames per second but what’s really impressive about this camera is the fact that it has a built-in lens that goes from 24 all the way up to 100 milli meters with an f-stop of 1.8 to 2.8 if that was a lens they put on an actual dslr.

That would be the ultimate lens you would never need another lens and the aperture on this lens is more than good enough for shooting low lights having those resolution and frame rates in a small compact body with this lens. honestly gives you so much freedom when creating it’s a small compact camera but it gives you the benefits and features of a big dslr that you would normally have to carry around in like two bags

And on top of that has canon’s autofocus in canon’s colour science which means everybody is always in focus and everybody always looks attractive.

Seriously though i love canon’s colour science and depending on when you get this camera make sure to update the firmware because the autofocus in this camera when it first came out wasn’t the greatest but if you install the newest firmware it is very very good now

And design wise the camera’s pretty small and compact flip up screen at the top mic jack on the side um even with the lens fully extended it’s not that big of a camera and overall if you want a compact camera for youtube this is definitely a must-have.

    • Features a large 1.0 inch, 20.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor that helps capture high quality images and videos with a wide dynamic range.
    • An aperture value of f/1.8 at the wide angle and f/2.8
    • High resolution, 3.0 inches LCD monitor that tilts up 180 degrees and down 45 degrees
    • Built in WiFi
