Between these three cameras there are varying price points, internal issues such as overheating, and differing zooms. Give or take one issue for another as they aren’t all perfect, which should you choose?
When it comes to vlogging having a top notch lightweight camera is everything. Carrying around a DSLR is out of the question, now that would be an uncomfortable and cruel arm workout. Then comes the attachment category for your devices. Although selfie sticks can give your arm a break when shooting with an Iphone or Android, the quality and autofocus are not ideal. Most importantly, who has enough Icloud storage for videos on videos? I certainly do not (even with paying for extra storage each month!).
