Video camera reviews are becoming a more common sight, and a lot of them are coming from folks who don’t need a lot more information than what they already have about the hardware, software, and performance.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best video camera models from each manufacturer.
As always, these are only the cameras we’ve tested.
We’ve also included a few accessories, like a tripod, that will allow you to use the camera in other situations.
We’ll be updating this article as more video camera options become available.
If you have any other camera recommendations, feel free to share them in the comments below.
The Sony A7R II The Sony A77 II is one of the top-performing video cameras on the market today.
Sony’s A77II has a 16MP sensor that delivers incredible low-light performance, and it’s equipped with a 13-point autofocus system.
The camera has an 8MP front-facing camera and a 1.2µm (2.3mm) Sony Exmor RS sensor that allows for great low-motion detection, a wide-angle lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8, and an LED flash.
The A77 is a capable camera that you’ll want to keep in your camera bag, and we love its high resolution.
The Canon EF 35mm f/1.8L USM lens is a very versatile lens, and Canon has included it with all of its DSLRs.
It offers a wide aperture of F/1,200, which is a nice combination for capturing high-resolution photos and videos.
The EF 35 is a great option for shooting video, especially when shooting video at very low ISO, but you’ll also find the wide aperture makes it great for taking pictures indoors and outdoors, so you might want to look into a zoom lens.
If all else fails, the EF 35 has the widest aperture of any of Canon’s EF lenses, so if you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, it might be worth considering.
