Vlogging Camera for RV Travel

by | Dec 15, 2018

We have had so many ask us: “What do you use to create your I Love RV Life YouTube videos?” As with most of the video creators I watch on YouTube as well as video creators we come in contact with, our video tool kits vary widely as well as evolve over time. It’s not as much as one camera is better than another or this software has these features, the use of video equipment boils down to personal preference and the style of YouTube channel created.

In this video, we discuss the type of YouTube channel we created along with the cameras, audio equipment, accessories and video editing software used from when we started the channel to what we currently use.

Anyone Can Create YouTube Videos

Virtually anyone with a story to tell can create a YouTube video. I personally enjoy the creativity as well as watching video about RV travel, RV modifications, video creation equipment and tips along with the wide variety of music artists. I also enjoy the times when creators talk about the video equipment they use to create content. I’m often amazed at the wide range of cameras used from a basic smart phone, or an action camera to extremely expensive DSLRs. Good equipment is very important for the quality of video and audio presented, but equally important is the quality and frequency of the content shared to entertain or educate your viewer.

Our Vlogging Camera

In this video and along with the list below, I cover our video kit and a quick view into the video editing software we use. One thing you can be assured, our kit will change over the next 12 months as new cameras arrive making video creation easier with higher quality and giving the creator more flexibility in telling their story.
