I’ve finally joined the Nikon crew! I was looking for a new camera to start my vlogging and after scouring the internet, high and low, I settled on the Nikon D5200.
Now I seriously understand the struggle that most bloggers/youtubers go through when choosing a new camera… There’s such a large range of cameras out there with so many functions, it seems impossible sometimes to choose just one. After reading MANY in-depth confusing reviews I found this Nikon DSLR to be the best bet. For all those wanting a new camera I’ll give you some key points that helped me decide on this camera.
- Picture and Video Quality – when making Youtube videos and blogging, quality of images and video is key. This camera is 24MP and also records HD videos which is great for both OOTD’s and vlogs.
- Usability – with a camera you want to be able to basically ‘point and shoot’ a photo but it’s also good to have manual control of specific features so that those with some knowledge of photography can use this camera as well as newbies.
- Structure – with a DSLR you expect to have a heavier camera than say a compact digital or a bridge camera. However this camera is the perfect size and weight and also has a swivel screen so that even your selfies will be on POINT!
- Price – Cameras nowadays can range from a hundred pound to a couple of thousand pounds! So when choosing a camera I feel it is good to combine high-end features with a good price point. This camera costs around £250-£320 so is at a good price point for a DSLR.
I can’t wait to start using this camera properly and be churning out some amazing OOTD’s! I hope this post helped you in narrowing down the millions of cameras out there to choose from. Please comment and subscribe, I would love to hear from you!
