As a blogger, I am always in search of good cameras that will provide quality pictures but don’t cost the earth. Whenever I am searching for a camera I always look for three things; easy of use, quality and affordability.
Other things that I look for are simple capabilities like ‘How to Connect your Lumix Camera to Wifi‘. Because being on blogger on them move, I need to be able to upload my photos online quickly. In this article, I will share 5 of the best cameras for bloggers as recommended by other bloggers.
Best Cameras for Bloggers as Recommended by Bloggers
One beautiful thing about the blogging community is that we are a helpful lot. I am not an expert on cameras, 90% of my pictures are taken using my mobile phone. The 10% when I use my Canon Powershot, it’s often in an automatic model and rarely do I change it.
Because of that and many other things, I thought I ask the people who know about it best. Below are some blogger recommendations on the best cameras for bloggers.
Milly of Mini-Adventures recommends a Canon EOS M3. She says it’s great – the best bits of a Canon DSLR, but with the portability of a mirrorless camera. The Flip-up screen is great for selfies and flat lays, and the WiFi connection that’s essential for camera-quality Instagram shots!
Fiona of From Fiona has an Olympus Pen and I love it because it’s light and easy to use. The flip screen is great for flat lays and the 45mm lens is fab for city photography too.
Paphapan of Clothes Confidant recommends a Canon 700D using the EF 50mm lens. It’s one of her favourites in her collection; has great colour vibrancy, really good for flat lays and outfit photos. The only downside is that there’s no zoom, but we’re willing to overlook that.
Kirsty of Luv and Lifestyle also recommends a Canon EOS M3 (and my iPhone). She adores are canon, it offers a DSLR experience in terms of changing lenses etc but is lightweight. I also love the flip up screen on it.
Other blogger recommendations
I currently own a Canon PowerShot SX530 HS, it does not require changing lens. What I love about it is the quality of my pictures but also that it can connect to wifi. I am able to transfer pictures to my phone using the canon app. The picture below was taken with this camera with no edits.
Not all bloggers own cameras or even prefer them over mobile phones. Of late a lot of phones have amazing embedded cameras that are a great alternative. Another recommendation that I have is from Vicky of Miss Tilly and Me.
Vickey doesn’t use a professional camera for her blogging because she has a Huawei P20 Pro. It has a triple camera and produces professional looking pictures from it. It has so many different modes to use and it automatically puts it into the best camera mode.
She has had so many compliments on my pictures and it’s small enough to carry around in my bag, rather than my large camera. It also means she can save the pictures to her Google drive or upload to social media straight away.
As you can see, bloggers use a variety of cameras to produce professional pictures. But not neglecting the phone devices that we also use to supplement pictures on our blogs.
