Vloggers on Youtube are more than just a trend. The best of them own serious businesses now, making millions of dollars and being followed by millions, even tens of millions of people. What once in a simple way to share your thoughts online is a very, very profitable business now. For example, the most famous Youtuber, PewDiePie, has an army of 54 million subscribers!
If you want to join the party and set up a Vlog yourself, then you must be interested to hear what kind of equipment these guys use and what would they recommend as the most appropriate camera for Vlogs. Of course, the gear which the most popular guys use might be out of your league because it costs well over a 1000$. However, some still hang on to the basic stuff which you can buy for a couple of hundred bucks.

When he is making them, he chooses the Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000, one of the best webcams money can buy. The list goes on and on with PewDiePie…
One of our favorite comedians, Roman Atwood, loves to use the two simple point-and-shoot cameras. These are the Sony CyberShot RX100 IV and the Canon PowerShot G7 X. He enjoys both of these because they are portable, they make videos of excellent quality, and he had a lot of recommendations from other Vloggers.
A famous fashion Vlogger, Zoella also likes to use the equipment best suitable for her current needs. So, when she is making a video in her home with a tripod (VelbonVideomate 438 Aluminum), she likes to use Canon 70D. Otherwise, on simple vlogs or casual recordings, she will go for a Canon PowerShot S120.
