Which HD Video Camera Should I Get For Youtube? – So, as some of you guys know, I’ve been considering starting a Youtube channel for quite sometime now. I’m not sure exactly what I’m going to do just yet but I want it to be related to comedy (or some weird variation of it). Of course, since I’m looking to make my own videos, I’m going to need a good video camera to do so. Which one would you recommend?
Why Am I Starting a Youtube Channel?
There are quite a few reasons why I want to start a Youtube channel but the main reason is because it’s something I always wanted to do. But here’s some more details on why.
It’s On My Bucket List - Well, maybe not exactly on my “bucket list” but rather something I want to do in life so I can cross off the list of things I have done. My list is so random but it includes anything from the small things in life (like Jet-skiing, riding a motorcycle or playing a poker tournament in Las Vegas) to medium things such as making Youtube videos.
Just making Youtube videos isn’t the only thing, my goal before I cross it off my list is to make at least one video and have it viewed over a million times.
If I get good at it, I’m hoping I get lots of videos viewed millions of times.
Getting My Name Out There And Making People Laugh – I don’t really need to get my name out there and I’m actually not trying to brand myself but ever since I was a kid, I’ve been able to make people laugh and it’s definitely a good feeling. I’m just hoping I can do the same with whatever I end up putting up on Youtube.
Make Money – People you guys judge me and think I’m going to make videos with the intent of only making money online, well, I am… but the money may not only go to me. I was actually considering on donating a share of my profits from whatever I make from Youtube videos to charities. I guess I just need to get to that point of making money before anything.
Um, I Want To… – I created an account years ago but I never really knew what I wanted to do, if anything. Again, I’m not even sure what I’m going to do because I’m my own worst critic. I mean, I used to make music and most of them were never released because I was so picky and just didn’t like it.
What Video Camera Do I Currently Have?
Currently, the only things that I have to videotape are the Flip Mino as well as my cell phone. Both are very convenient, easy to use as well as easy access for uploading it onto the computer but either is that great in quality.
I have been using the Flip Mino to record a lot of things and some videos have came out great. Plus, it comes with its own video editing program. But if I’m going to make a Youtube channel then I’m thinking on upgrading to something a little better. Which leads to my question…
Which HD Video Camera Should I Get For Youtube?
I did some research and found a few different ones that seem pretty good but I just wanted to ask you guys to see if you have any good camcorders or know of anything.
I know I have been busy and you have been seeing less blog posts on here but I have priorities. Making Youtube videos isn’t really one of them but since I record a lot of my daily activities when I go out anyways, I figured I would just try to invest in a new camera eventually.
I’m sure some of you guys are experts at Youtube, definitely more than me (as far as making videos and stuff) so I’d like some feedback.
Any advice, opinions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
