The compact size and light weight of Canon vlogging cameras such as the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III
, Canon EOS M50 Mark II
and Canon EOS M6 Mark II
make them ideal for recording movement. A captivating vlog should take the audience on a journey with you – whether it's through a city's cobbled streets or showing your reaction to unwrapping your latest purchase – and movement can be key to that. Rather than shaky, distracting footage, make sure your shots are smooth so that viewers can focus on your exciting location or interesting story.
To keep shots steady, support the camera from underneath with the palm of your hand and grip it at the side. If you need extra support, a grip accessory that attaches to the camera body, giving you something to grip on to, can be a useful addition. Good tech also helps a lot: for crisp and steady movies, use a camera that features Image Stabilisation
or a lens with Optical IS, which makes your footage clearer and easier to watch, such as the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III. The camera's 5-axis, Dynamic IS is designed to counteract camera shake even when you're running, panning or shooting at full zoom.
As a vlogger, your face is the thing people will look at, so keeping it in focus is crucial. Canon's Face Detection and Eye Detection technology can automatically track your face and keep it in focus.
