→ GoPro's are ideal vlogging cameras for many reasons. Although these cameras do not offer image and/or audio quality of the same level as the other best vlogging cameras mentioned in this list -- they do have some advantages over them. Namely, GoPros are incredibly durable, long-lasting, affordable and super compact. Ideal for outdoors'y vloggers.


Panasonic FZ1000

☞ Amateur Favourite

→ This Panasonic FZ1000 is an ideal home vlogging camera for the vlogger that wants to vlog in front of a stable, very high quality camera. Although a little heavier than the compact cameras most used for vlogging, this camera does have a flip screen display so you can see exactly what you are vlogging while in front of the camera, which is great.

There you have it - the very best vlogging cameras of 2016 in all their glory!​

Be sure to check out each camera and read the many firsthand reviews from customers to find out more about how they are to use on a daily basis. Each of these cameras offer unique benefits and lend themselves to specific usages over one another. For example if you are the type of vlogger that likes to film out and about in the street and walk/run/move around with your vlogging camera then it makes sense for you to choose one of the "compact" vlogging cameras. 

Ultimately though, you can choose any of these best vlogging cameras and be rest assured that your vlogs will be on the same level of picture quality that your favourite vlogger produces. That's what it's all about!
