If there is one innovation that makes vlogging much less frustrating and much more fun, it is the flip screen. With a flip screen camera, you do not need to worry about getting yourself out of the frame. That perfect single take recording is possible, because with a flip out screen you get to see what your camera is recording while you actually do it. Pretty neat, right?
What do you say? Would it be great if we tell you what we think the best vlogging camera with a flip screen is? If that sounds nice, check out the list below. After careful research, here’s what we think about the best vlogging cameras with a flip screen.
Our #1 pick is a powerful camera from Canon. An upgrade over the G7X, the G7X Mark II will surpass your expectations. It comes with a 20.1MP CMOS sensor with Digic 7 and a 9-blade iris diaphragm and battery IS-equipped lens. The result is stunning 4K videos even in low light with stereo sound. The battery life has also improved over the G7X giving you a longer recording time.
Built-in Wifi and NFC are present and you get a 1TB storage at the Canon Connect Station CS100. It is great value for money, and beats the competition by a large margin.
The Panasonic LX10 stands toe to toe with the G7X Mark II on every parameter we tested, losing only to the better image stabilization offered by the G7X Mark II. The LX10 comes with a Leica DC Vario lens with super bright aperture, and can record 4K Ultra HD videos that provide an immersive experience. It is compact and sturdy, and provides spectacular colors and sound quality.
At #3, we have a relatively new product but vloggers are already raving about it. The Samsung NX500 is the first mirrorless camera on our list. It is equipped with a powerful 28MP backside illuminated APS-C sensor and follows the latest WiFi Standards. You can record Ultra HD 4k videos even with low angle shots and the high efficiency video coding(HEVC) provides you with great compression. The lenses are interchangeable and this camera comes with all the connectivity options for easy sharing. A great product if you like the flip screen style recording.
The RX100 from Sony is the costliest item on our list. But that’s the deal with all the good products from Sony. They make you pay for the good stuff! And this camera is more than just good. The slim RX100 boasts to have the World’s first 1-inch stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor, that gives you high resolution 4k recordings, 40X super slow motion and super high speed imaging.
This is not a camera for everybody, especially, when you are on a budget. But it’s merits may appeal to some and we keep it at #4.
#5 on our list is a camera whose strong point is high resolution 4K videos. With a 24X full range Leica lens, and 5 axis hybrid OIS, the videos you shoot with this camera have stunning detail even with a 12.1 MP sensor. Low light videography is superb, and the advanced high speed autofocus technology will always keep you in focus. There is built-in WiFi, still, the best selling point of this camera is its ability to shoot 4K videos at a very budget price.
When you are vlogging, you feed your viewers with regular content. There’s so much that goes into content creation, than just recording. As the saying goes, if the dough is perfect, the dumplings are great. Not only do cameras with flip screens ensure a fine recording under your watchful eye, they save you a lot of time that is otherwise wasted on retakes. And remember, more time means more videos! And do I need to tell you what that means?
We have carefully picked the best ones out for you. Our favorite is the Canon Powershot G7X Mark II, but, it is up to you to decide what you think is the best vlogging camera with a flip screen out of the above.
