By Peter Chubb - Oct 19, 2016

If you are a blogger, then you will know just how important it is to find the right vlogging camera with a flip screen, as it’s the use of these articulating screens that makes life a lot easier when you are recording your latest footage.

By using such cameras they not only save a great deal of time, but also allow video bloggers to save money as well because we know how expensive some people spend on larger, more professional cameras.

So the question is, which is the best Best cheap vlogging camera with flip screen for YouTubers? If you do have a limited budget, which a majority of video bloggers have, then it’s important to find a model that will not break the bank, and we feel we have come up with a few options that could be ideal.

The Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II is a very capable camera and comes packed with some impressive features for the blogger, which includes good lowlight quality, 1080p60 resolution, and 265 shots on a single battery charge. Its low-light quality is pretty good for a 1’ CMOS sensor camera, and so no need to carry heavy equipment around with you. In terms of price, you should expect to pay around £550. Ok, so we know there are cheaper options out there, but this model really does give you everything you need from a video bloggers perspective.

If that’s not for you, then maybe you should consider the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ300. Ok, so it might be missing some of the features of the G7X Mark II, such as its low-light capability, but it does record in 4K, which is awesome for a camera of its price. Its battery will also take more shots, up to 380 in all, although it does come at a price, and that is weight, as it’s heavier than the Canon above. In terms of cost, you should be less than £500.

For those of you that are looking for something a bit smaller, making it easier to travel with, then maybe you should consider the Samsung NX Mini. Believe it or not, this model is now a couple of years old, but still has a host of great features ideal for the blogger. You can find more details on this camera in a previous article, but just know a few scarifies will be made in order to have something so small. The only issue here is that you are unable to purchase this camera new, although it’s worth having a dig around eBay because you will be able to grab yourself a bargain.
