David Dobriks Vlogging Camera

  • Type: DSLR
  • Sensor size: 24MP CMOS
  • Movie Resolution: 1080P HD
  • Monitor: 3INCH Flip Screen  
  • Vlogger Level: Intermediate

David uses the Canon EOS 80D.  A favourite among the YouTube Community due to its stunning 1080P HD quality which shoots at 60 Frames Per Second (FPS) and it also has one feature that is considered the holy grail for vloggers alike, The Flip Screen. The Fully articulating screen allows you to ensure that you're in the frame of the camera at all times so you know exactly what you're filming!

AutoFocus is really important for vlogging, especially when you're like David moving from quickly from shot to shot. For example, from one of his most memorable videos when he just cut his hand with broken glass from a wine bottle! Somebody grab that camera! You need to have reliable autofocus and great resolution to capture moments like that, which is probably why the EOS 80D is a favourite among many YouTubers including Lilly Singh

Canon EF-S 18-135 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens, Black

  • Focal Length: 18-135MM
  • Close Range Focus: 1.5Ft
  • Filter Size: 67MM

Along with the Canon EOS 80D, David also uses the Canon 18-135MM lens. This is an expensive bit of kit, but it pays off when you see how much David makes on youtube.

This Canon 18-135MM lens has built in lens stabilisation using a four-stop Dynamic Image Stabiliser to guarantee shake free video even which is ideal for vlogging as you may be walking around with the camera a lot as you probably see in David and friends videos.

This may seem pricey and if you're a new vlogger with a limited budget, i'd advise to get used to your camera and kit lens first but before you invest. Lenses are a great investment for videographers, especially paired with your Canon DSLR

David Dobriks Old Vlogging Camera:

Sony DSCHX80/B

  • Type: Point & Shoot
  • Sensor size: 18.2MP Exmor R CMOS
  • Movie Resolution: Full HD 
  • Monitor: 3INCH  180° tilt screen  
  • Vlogger Level: New & intermediate

This Sony compact is David's old vlogging camera, while small it really packs a punch when it comes to video. It records in Full HD with a quality Zeiss Lens and an impressive 18.2mp CMOS sensor which is quite impressive for a compact like this.

The DSCHX80/B features a 3 inch tilt screen that you can tilt 180 degrees allowing you to take selfies, or make sure you're in the frame making it a great alternative to a more expensive DSLR. 

In terms of autofocus this camera is quite quick, with Sony's autofocus technology that locks on to subjects in focus. It also features 5 Axis image stabilisation so you wont have to worry  too much about a steady hand when recording, although we would recommend a Manfrotto Pixi mini tripod, if you're looking for more stable video while vlogging and walking.
