There are a lot of cameras on the market, so it’s difficult to say which one is the best vlogging camera setup in 2018. All camera manufacturers could produce the perfect digital camera for vlogging, for Youtube, for filming, videomaking and so on.. ..But they won’t!
It’s a challenge trying to find what works best for you, which are your priorities when buying a new camera, and how you going to create your own setup for vlogging, for producing videos for Youtube or for your photography and filming projects.
If you already own a decent camera, try to see if you can create a DIY solution to compensate the lack of a specific function prior to get frustrated and keep searching the market for that best camera that actually, does not exist.

After all the rumours and the long wait, Canon has finally released the first
Mirrorless Full-Frame Camera joining the party with Sony and now also Nikon
however, here I will talk mainly about Canon, particularly because I am a Canon shooter. Therefore the question is……is it worth buying that camera? Let me give you my thoughts about it. As you probably know I like to shoot landscapes, outdoor lifestyles and activities, such as seen in the video you see below. In this video I’m on a hike where the problem is the haze, and as the clouds come and go, I thought I would take the opportunity to give you my thoughts about this new camera release.
This long-awaited camera, has been quite a talking point for quite some time now, such as “when are Canon going to come out with a mirrorless full-frame?” and I think people started to get impatient, especially when you don’t want to have to switch brands, such as Sony, who had already updated their models. Once you have a set of lenses and accessories compatible to a certain brand it’s quite difficult to make a switch and you know of course, whether you are an amateur or a professional photograher it is always good to be up on the game with the latest model of camera to come out, but I feel that sometimes, these manufacturers take us for a bit of a ride, because when you spend the sort of money we need to spend, they give you something, but certainly don’t give you everything, so then you always have to come up with compromises. I am very practical and when I want to upgrade or change camera and equipment I look at what that new equipment is going give me that it doesn’t let me do now.
Yes, they have finally put a full-frame sensor into a mirrorless body, but what would you expect?
Why would you get a mirrorless rather than a DSLR?
Maybe you don’t want to have the mirror flicking up, or you would expect the camera to be of a smaller compact body or faster shutter speed (only 7 frames per second that goes down only to 5 frames per second, if you don’t use servo focus)? Not great, if you know you can buy one of those Micro Four Thirds cameras that can go up to 15 frames per second.
The second big mistake or should I say lack of specs, is just the one SD card slot which for any photographer that has some responsibility whether it be a wedding or any sort of shoot, two card slots are of great importance. Whether to back up your work or if you want to shoot in RAW or JPEG, video etc.
The third problem is the lack of in-body in-built sensor stabilisation. I have a little camera, that I think, is one of the most underrated cameras out there, and it’s got five axes image stabilization with an aps-c sensor.
You really see good image quality when you are using aps-c and full frame sensor cameras. If the light is good, then you could go down to micro four-thirds, to a 1-inch sensor or even a mobile phone sometimes produces good photos. It’s then, depending on what you evaluate as being a good photo. I love the Micro Four Thirds cameras as they have a multitude of specifications that you might need, but unfortunately, they can lose image quality, particularly in certain light conditions, like the atmospheric day today, you start to see more noise in the image and lack of details in the clouds. This is where you can see the quality from the Aps-C sensor or the Full-frame. Maybe it just requires a bit more post-processing, but if I can do less of that, the better. That’s why I like Canon, because I like the colours that come straight out of the camera, there’s very little post-processing to do and the files are beautiful and ready to go.
Another problem of this new camera, is that Canon has now decided after so many years, to change the lens mount, so you now need an adapter to be able to fit on the camera all the lenses that you’ve collected over the years. Whether it is an EF lens or an EF-s lens, it is an extra piece of kit that you need to buy and to carry along with you. Less is always more.
Another thing they’ve given the illusion of is having a good 4k, but this 4k gets so cropped that you either have to use a big wide-angle lens to compensate that, but then that gets cropped anyway so.. what’s the point? A good thing about 4k is to be able to extract some good still images from each frame of your video footage, whilst retaining all of the details in your images. Some issues with using 4k is that all the technology is not quite up to the game and so the files become really heavy. If you try to upload a video on YouTube in 4k, it can take quite an age and everything slows down.
One good thing people have been asking for, is the fully-articulated screen in a full frame body camera, as this was only seen in the 70d and then the 80d.
Canon EOS R Fully Articulated Screen
If you want to move to a mirrorless camera, and spend half the money, then take a look at the Canon EOS M5. It’s got a compact body (that’s one of the reasons why you want a mirrorless camera), it’s got a flippable screen and 5-axes in-body image stabilisation. This means that I can shoot using lenses that are not stabilised, as the camera automatically stabilise them and if the lens is stabilised, then you get a double stabilisation effect. That means that you can really shoot at a much slower shutter speed and still get sharp images.
The EOS M5 has got a very good touch screen (the touch screen of Canon is second to none), it’s fantastic and really responsive. It’s got Wi-Fi connectivity and has everything that you need to shoot good photography with 24.5 megapixel images, RAW files and it costs less than half of the price of the new EOS R!
So let me let me hear in the comments below your thoughts, if you think this new camera EOS R from Canon is worth buying. I personally don’t think so, but I want to hear your thoughts.
Until next time this is Fabo from Fabulous Outdoors ..see you next time! http://www.FabulousOutdoors.blog
It’s always a great emotion when a wildife photographer, animal and nature lover bumps into a wild animal in the woods.. occasionally it happens. However if you want to really get into wildlife photography and capture great shots, just wandering around through the woods is not enough.
Hunting is still quite a big thing over here in Europe unfortunately and therefore the animals have become really clever to increase their chances to survive.
Hiding is one of their best characteristics, so you have to be really patient and to train your eyes to spot them through the vegetation.
Another thing to consider is the direction of the wind, even when it’s just a little breeze, you want to make sure you are downwind to the animals if you want to have any chance in capturing them. Their ability of detecting a human being with their smell is way more powerful than ours. If you really want to increase your chances to see animals quite closely, you need to sit still and camouflage yourself through branches and leaves or, even better, to buy appropriate camouflage clothing.
Thank you for passing by and for reading this post, try these few first tips and.. good luck!
Remember to GET OUT MORE as it’s..
People often ask why we ride ..what is it about cycling that at a first look, it seems just a painful long term agony on a bicycle to get nowhere..or something like that. The fact is, it’s hard to explain. At first, it can feel quite daunting, but with patience, it becomes easier and you feel satisfied and proud of what you’ve achieved so far. After your ride, a refreshing shower, a cool drink and a bite to eat and you suddenly feel invigorated and alive, as long as you haven’t done too much of course.
Little by little, your body will do all the adjustments needed to make you perform better, stay out for longer rides and be willing to do more of it. In this short clip, I wanted to pass on some of the feelings, the sounds and the landscapes of a cyclist’s journey. It’s a short clip, part of a bigger documentary project, coming out in future episodes.

It’s a very cold winter in the alps, lots of snow and temperatures of -15C / -20C and more. As a lover of the outdoors and a photographer, these are great conditions for capturing beautiful natural landscapes with the fresh snow making it a real winter wonderland. In this video, I went for a walk in the beautiful Champagny Le Haut in France, which is part of the Parc National de la Vanoise.
It’s a great place to visit and to be surrounded by nature and to enjoy the beautiful outdoors and all the fabulous outdoor activities possible in this location.
I’ve been using canon cameras and equipment, plus a wide angle lens from Tokina.
For better audio capture I’ve mounted the external microphone video-mic pro which it performs much better than the inbuilt one.

We have been using and testing a few Dji products in the past, and we’ve always been more than happy about the quality, durability and performances of their products.
The Mavic Pro has been a fantastic travel companion, very portable and reliable, and able to produce fantastic footage, such as in this video here below.
The Mavic Pro has been out for a while now, so people have been able to use it and test it to it’s full potential, however those few who have complained about their user experience, were often making mistakes in the way they were operating it.
Anyway, with the release of the new MAVIC AIR, Dji realised the most portable Dji Drone to house a 3-axis mechanical gimbal with it’s angular vibration range reduced to 0.005 degrees. Set in a triangular formation, gimbal dampeners help create even steadier shots.
The Mavic Air’s onboard camera integrates a 1/2.3″ 12-megapixel sensor and and f/2.8 lens with a35mm equivqlent focal lengthof 24mm to shoot high quality photos and videos.
Plus, in addition to Horizontal, Vertical and 180degrees panoramas, the MAVIC AIR stitches 25 photos together in just eight seconds to create crystal clear 32-MP “sphere panoramas”.
