YouTube has no problem supporting 1080p HD video, so you should record and upload with your camcorder's highest available setting. Early in 2014, YouTube also announced a new format that allows 4K video on the site, though anyone viewing the video would need a 4K monitor compatible with YouTube's VP9 format that allows for such high quality videos with less bandwidth. I wouldn't rush out and spend $2,000 on a 4K video camera for YouTube unless you've already developed a well-established (and high paying) channel, but more and more people will be able to view the high resolution videos soon.

To start off our list of the best video camera for YouTube, we’ll begin with a DSLR camera because they’re the most popular choice for YouTube videos since they span across many different video types (vlogging, outdoors, skits, and more). The D3300 is one of the highest rated in its category. It is our choice to list first because it will not necessarily break your wallet (it ranked first in our best DSLR cameras under $500), offers superb video quality and covers our musts for YouTube videos. It is equipped with a 24.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor (DX-format) for photos, 18-55mm VR image stabilization lens, and 1080p full HD video, so the overall quality of your picture will be there among the standard.

People have been making videos for YouTube for a while now but it’s only been in the last several years that this medium has become a bonafide career path in the form of full-time vloggers. Short for “video blogs”, vlogs have become extremely popular in recent years. YouTube’s most popular vloggers are making millions of dollars and even regular folks who see vlogging only as a hobby are having a blast making videos. While there are many types of vlogs out there, they all have one thing in common: they require a good camera. When buying or renting a camera for vlogging it is important to consider things like budget, portability, image and audio quality, recording time, and battery life. The best camera for YouTube or vlogging largely depends on what you are trying to capture. Travel vloggers want lightweight setups with excellent image quality to help showcase amazing locales. Beauty vloggers need sharp optics, excellent autofocus, and high quality audio. Family vloggers want highly portable cameras that can withstand the demands of a rough and tumble bunch of kids and all the chaos and fun that they bring. We’ve broken down some of the most popular cameras for vloggers and came up with options to fit every need and budget!

So I’ve come to this blog posting about 5 times already. I haven’t purchased a camera in almost 6 years. My current camera is the Canon rebel t2i (yes, very old). I am looking to start making youtube tutorials that won’t really be showing myself, but more so my hands, some the things I will be teaching to make. I am trying to find the perfect camera to use. I need something where I can control it with a wireless remote (stop, start, zoom, etc). I also need one that will auto focus quickly when I bring something close to the camera and take it away. I am clueless as to what to buy. I am going to be shooting tutorials on knitting/crochet. I currently own a yarn store and I also make my own hand dyed yarn. Making youtube tutorials has been something I have been wanting to do for a long time now. Can I please bother you for some advice? What camera do you recommend for me? I would like to keep it in the reasonable pricing area. Nothing more then 3000 and I am actually looking to spend that much on everything if I could. As far as lighting, wireless remote, etc. goes.

So, you want to start making some videos on YouTube? The best high-definition (HD) video camera or camcorder to buy depends on a few of your needs. We know of some individuals who not only make YouTube videos for fun, but make quite a lot of money while doing so. Fortunately for many of us as technology continues to advance, some video cameras (particularly the popular DSLR cameras) and camcorders are quite affordable. Let’s take a look at what exactly you should be looking for when it comes to video cameras and camcorders for YouTube in particular and what our recommendations are.

You’ve probably heard that old saying, “Variety is the spice of life!” Well I personally feel that’s the case when it comes to shooting interesting YouTube videos. You COULD have one camera that you handle your entire workflow on, but that’s sort of the minimum viable entry point (and what 99% of YouTubers do). If you want to increase your channel/video engagement on YouTube (including the all-important watch time), keep things visually interesting by mixing up the type of footage and angles! And that is exactly what the cameras below will let you do. Together, these three cameras will give you a 4K workflow for incredibly detailed shots; you’ll have a hard-working main camera, a smooth action camera and an aerial camera.

To top off our list, we’ve got a beautiful camera by Sony for those who are extremely serious about their YouTube filming. If you’re serious about this and want to be set until you make it to doing this as a full-time job, this is the best YouTube video camera out there — check these features out. A 12.2 MP full-frame exmor CMOS sensor (it is new advanced sensor that doubles light sensitivity of the senor and uses their A/D conversion to reduce noise effectively for amazing quality), BIONZ X image processor (Sony’s advanced image processing of raw image data like we saw in the Blackmagic), gapless on-chip lens, 3.0″ tilting LCD monitor, a 25-point AF system and full HD in recording in XAVC S (their own recording format).

Sony’s mirrorless camera systems have been taking the photography world by storm and the a7R II may be the best of them all for photographers and vloggers alike. This camera boasts a full frame 42.2MP sensor in a small body. The a7R II has built-in image stabilization, handles ISOs (up to 25,600 in video mode) well, and is compatible with lenses made by other brands (with the use of an adaptor – find out more in Leverage Multiple Camera Platforms with Adapters). This camera is the perfect choice for vloggers who demand high quality everything in a package that is smaller than a DSLR.

Here’s another one of the best YouTube DSLR video cameras, and it begins Canon’s dominance in our list (for a reason). The Rebel T5 is a part of their Rebel T series’ and although they have numerous options to choose from, we went with this particular model because it’s the most reviewed around the internet by far (and positively, of course). This one provides a bit lower quality than the previous DSLR, and albeit at a lower price, is well worth settling with if you’re under a strict budget. A few highlights of this one include being equipped with a 18.0 Megapixel CMOS image sensor (APS-C), their ‘DIGIC 4 Image Processor’ (Canon’s newest high-speed signal processing control unit), a big 3.0″ LCD screen for watching what you’re recording, as well as being able to record in up to 1920 x 1080 (30, 25 or 24 fps).  We would recommend purchasing this DSLR video camera if you don’t want to spend the extra money on the D3300. Here’s a video demo of the Rebel T5 to watch.

Lastly and what really sets this thing apart aside from the superior video quality is the overall technology that comes with it (way too many to name) — infrared recording for night shooting, XLR inputs for top-notch audio, color peaking, zebra patterns and more. This is geared towards the advanced video camera user or those who want to really go hard when it comes to being serious about their YouTube videos and production altogether. Here’s a XA10 video demo.
