Okay if you've been following along you guys know we have this very tight budget. So expect everything to be cheap and you will see me hoping everything just turns out okay. Recently I bought one item on the list of needed gadgets to start our YouTube channel. What else do we use for videos? A camera of course! But then again, DSLR's are really what we need but because of the tight budget, I went on search to find the cheapest digital camera with the best quality for videos! (Yeah don't mind the pictures as long as it is HD when it comes to video) Here's what we bought:
The Canon ELPH 300HS!
LOL WELL IT'S STILL CANON K DON'T JUDGE WE POOR
So I've played around with it and it really does take good videos. It even has great auto-focus and hell yeah white balance. And surprisingly, it does really good with low light. So I recommend this beginner camera 8/10. Let's take a further look around
What you'll love:
- World's thinnest digital camera with a 24mm ultra Wide-Angle lens and 5x Optical Zoom and Optical Image Stabilizer.
- Canon's HS SYSTEM with a 12.1 MP CMOS and DIGIC 4 Image Processor improves shooting in low-light situations without the need for a flash
- Full 1080p HD Video for exceptional quality with stereo sound, plus a dedicated movie button for easy access.
- Get high-speed shooting in a point-and-shoot camera: High-speed Burst Mode captures 8.0fps and
- Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on 32 predefined shooting situations.
- Super Slow Motion Movie records video at high speeds to allow slow motion playback.
- Zoom optically while shooting video and keep footage stabilized with Dynamic IS.
- And lowers noise levels at higher ISO settings.
And yes Canon is still manufacturing this as of this date! (January 25, 2017).
For a brand new one it retails for $320.00. For the used ones you can get it at around $150.00
I got mine for Php2,500.00 which is around $50.00!!! Total bargain!! Of course this is used I'm just really lucky in finding the buyer. (Hi John!)
I can't upload some sample videos here but I can really say it is a steal for the price! I do have a picture of my dog.
