Vlogging on the go can be hard.

Some (beginner) Youtubers try do it with their smartphones.

Others (that are more advanced) have a videographer "friend" film them.

And everyone else in the middle? They vlog with flip screen cameras.

Why do you need a flip screen camera?

Flip screen cameras are a great investment, if you're looking to improve the quality of video content in your vlogs. They're easy to use and most are lighter than DSLR cameras (and just as powerful). Some have external microphone ports, so you can plug your own audio equipment in. But overall, they're a great tool to have in your filming arsenal, especially if you're looking to up your game as an influencer.

We’ve rounded up the best vlogging cameras with flip screens, for all you future Youtube sensations out there - because, let's face it, there are a lot of choices.
