    hello everyone, I'm currently looking for a camera for vlogs, as I am traveling quiet often and am planning to do vlogs in the future... of course I have heard GOPRO at this moment 100 times :D but maybe someone knows something cheaper (or even better and cheaper) thank you in advance, Alex. :)

    What mobile phone do you have? If you’re just starting out why not use that?

    The problem with using a GoPro or any camera for that matter that doesn't have a flip screen, is that you can't see what your composition is like when you're filming yourself. I don't know any specific models myself though, I'm sure others can recommend them.

    As Spleen Sauce has said, if you've got a decent enough phone, that would be a good one to start off with.

    Just bought a Sony RX100 V myself partly for vlogging holidays etc for the family.
    Depends on budget but if the V is a bit pricey then somthing like the iii which is 1080p rather than 4K would also be a good choice.
    Plenty for sale on eBay and very popular blogging camera .

    Use your phone with a dji osmo mobile 2. They are just over £100 new.
