Best DSLR For Video

So what is the best all around DSLR for video?
I'm gonna share with you my research and my best tips right now Hey whats up guys Sean here with video influencers helping you build your influence And your income with online video And one of the big question that people are always asking is what is the best DSLR for making videos and YouTube videos So I had the opportunity to shoot on a lot of different cameras and work with people who use all kinds of different cameras but in this video I was specifically concern with the best all-around DSLR like the one you can be sure it's solid when it comes to price features performance ease of use and also stay at the end of this video because I'm going to be sharing some of the things that you should look for in a DSLR even if you go with a different one as well as some of my best money saving tips lets get into the review so whats the best DSLR all-around for youtubers and video creators I think is the canon 70D and here is why Number one of course the camera is HD every camera you go with is gotta be HD 1080p it was brilliant video quality number two a huge youtuber attribute Is it has a flip out screen and not just a flip out screen but also a touch screen that is really good quality on it so of course youtubers want that for.  canon camera and video

If you would use it for vlogging or when you are shooting a video and you need to able to see yourself or you want to be able to compose the shoot number three is got a 30 min record time and so you don't have to keep restarting the video every like 12 minutes like some others DSLRs or some of the older Canons number four and this is the stand out that this is the game changer for the canon 70D and that is auto focus during video and so de 70D introduces what's known by dual pixel CMOS autofocus and that simply means it's really good at focusing when shooting video not only that but you can also tap in the screen to focus you can set it to follow faces you can set it to follow regions and so for youtubers specially that want to do reviews that want to hold up a product and having the camera focus on the product they want to make sure to not ruin a whole video by not having it in focus having really good auto focus really sets this camera apart and we'll talk about it later because there's other good cameras with autofocus but at a much higher price range we are interested in what's the best all around that auto focus is a game changer. 

next is there is a huge variety of lenses available because is a canon camera because canon really is so main stream that means a couple things that you are going to be able to find more lenses than some other brands or some of the niche brands but also if you search even on like used or refurbish you can actually save money because there are so many out there and get variety of lenses next is that the kit lenses that are kinda like the standard lenses that would come bundle with the camera if you buy it with a lens are actually really good and great for video creators and youtubers to get started with and one of the features that you want to look for is the kit lenses most of them now are STM and that means that the auto focus system It's just on a step remoter and it means that it focuses fast and it focuses quiet next is that the wireless features on this camera are super solid Meaning it interfaces great with the canon the canon connect app its available on iPhone and droid And so you can shoot the camera remotely you can transfer files to your phone Most video creators and youtubers also need to take great photography And we'll talk about that in a second.

 But what's nice is that you can take really high end photography Get that on your phone and then use that for social media content And then also takes great photos and so if you've been watching Video Influencers For any length of time you also know how important branding is And that is not really is not just about your video content but that You want good thumbnails you want good branding on your social media Good photography to use in other places and so having a solid DSLR You can also depend on this not just to create video content But also to create photo content kinda your social media content Creation machine And lastly it has a mic input so one of the big challenges with a lot Of point shoots and with a lot of youtubers video creators That's kinda were you gotta start But because you've got that mic input it really changes the game For what your audio options are and that's pretty common for DSLRs But definitely should be mention So how much does a Canon 70D cost? Well right now is still gonna round you about a 1000 dollars And if you want to get a kit lens with it
you can actually Grab those or find those I just saw on Amazon for 1100 bucks You can get a solid kit lens so definitely a STIP investment. 

But what we are talking about is all the features and performance that you get for the price for instance the autofocus is really good and that's a huge feature that a lot of people want but you can use something like a the sony A7s which I've used a lot now the autofocus is better the video quality is better but just the camera is about 2500 bucks and by the time you are investing that much you could build an entire studio lighting tripods mics everything so is there better DSLRs ? absolutely better for video ? sure but best all around I really think is this and another one you could look into that is also very popular is the luminix gh4 but those are gonna run you I think 1500 ish right now for just the body I'll link up this techy details in the YouTube description It should be known that there's definitely a learning curve from moving form most user friendly models out of any of the DSLRs I've ever use and the last think I consider when looking into what's the best all around DSLR for video and for YouTube is just how many youtubers are using it and people from different areas and we interview a tone of here on video influencers. 

So people on the beauty space that are doing like beauty channels life style channels and doing a lot of look books and different kinds of content like that and then people like Casey Neistat I mean He highly popularize this camera and the fact that he use it for vlogging and I recently heard him say on a podcast that the reason he still uses it is not because is perfect but because of the autofocus is so great on it and because that's really important to him in fact I actually did a video on Casey set up and you can check that out I'll link that up in the YouTube card that will pop up somewhere here if you are interested in that now as promise I just wanted to share a kick tip when it comes to saving money if you are going to make an investment on this camera or any other camera though as you can see here the 70D is running for about a 1000 bucks just for the body so that mean it doesn't come with the lens but I was able to pick the 70D that we got off of amazon for 750 bucks and the way we did it it was ship via prime and it came in two days and it came and turn out perfect it's we did it in this section right here see you have two sections you have refurbish and you also have this used so in used you can go through here and look at things for instance like this one is a warehouse deal fulfill by amazon for under 700 dollars its used acceptable so there's not a lot of details about that but it is amazon warehouse.

So there would be a return policy so you just shaved 300 dollars off the price of the camera right there so inside of this section here you can find a lot of great deals and just make sure that the seller has a really positive rating and that they've been around for a little while Question of the day What camera do you currently use for your video content or your YouTube content I would love to hear form you and connect with you in the comment section bellow So thanks so much for watching this video if you are interested we recently put together a video influencers buyers guide and It kinda goes through everything from not just cameras but also Lighting to software to just the different stuff that we use for different things From vlogging to shooting videos like this so if you are interested in that you can Check that out for free in And also subscribe to video influencers for more videos interviews With video influencers tips and tricks for Gear reviews like this everything online video helping you crush it Online video that's what your find here Definitely check out the show notes for a summary of everything talked about in this episode hit the like button if you appreciated this video leave a comment about other videos you'll like to see and until next time keep crushing it keep smashing it keep jack hammering it jack hammering it?
