Awesomeness continues after advertisement
You could totally use your iPhone to record but using professional equipment will allow you to create higher quality content and be more dynamic in your approach.
Whether you are new to the video-making world or an expert looking to upgrade to something new that profesh YouTubers recommend, there are many options to choose from. From small and compact point-and-shoot cameras to bulky but brilliant DSLR’s (digital single-lens reflex cameras), each offer amazing capabilities such as touch display and auto-focus. It’ll be easy for you to start uploading videos to the web right away no matter what your experience level is.
Here are the cameras that faves like Lohanthony, Andrea Russett, Casey Neistat, and Zoella use to make their viral vids:

1) Canon EOS 70D — $1,490
Zoella, Aspyn Ovard, and Casey Neistat swear by the Canon EOS 70D. If you buy the EOS 70D Video Creator Kit it comes with a 32gb SD card (which you must have to create videos on any camera) and Rode microphone.
2) Canon EOS Rebel T6i — $700.00
Lohanthony‘s DSLR camera is light weight, easy to use, and takes gorgeous photos and videos. The Rebel T6i records videos in HD and has built-in wi-fi, so you can upload your content to Instagram pretty much immediately.
3) Canon PowerShot G7 X
The G7X is a compact, selfie-ready digital camera that is super basic and easy to navigate. It does not have interchangeable lenses or microphone hook-ups, so if you’re new to the vlogging scene this one may be the right one for you. The video and audio quality is high definition and super crisp. Plus, Andrea Russett said that her vlogs would be “100% better” after receiving this camera in the mail and we can definitely trust her recommendation.
4) GoPro — $200-$400
Many Youtubers experiment with a Go Pro camera when trying to capture more intense moments that may include high speed winds, water, dirt, and extreme temperatures. If you’re looking for a camera you can hold in your hand while you snowboard or swim with sea turtles — this is the one.
