What Cameras The Top 10 Youtubers Use

Some Youtubers are making massive amounts of cash nowadays from simply sharing videos and vlogs on the internet. In fact, some like PewDiePie are making so much money, you might be thinking you'd like a tiny slice of the money pie yourself. If you are, you're going to need a camera that captures video and you may be surprised to see that you don't actually have to spend thousands of pounds on new kit to be able to get up-and-running. 

Just take a look at the kit the top ten Youtubers use, brought to you by What They Use, and you'll realise you can spend well under £1000 on kit. In fact, if you're on a really tight budget, we've listed several vlogging camera suggestions that are under £200 in our 'Best Cameras For Vloggers / Vlogging' feature that offer good video quality as well as all of the other features you expect to find in compact cameras such as Wi-Fi and a decent zoom. 

The camera choices of some of the most famous Youtubers range from digital DSLRs and compacts to smartphones and instant film cameras, with the Canon EOS 70D and Canon PowerShot G7 X appearing quite frequently in the top ten. Take a look at the list and if you're a vlogger, let us know if you agree with the choices in the comments section below.

Ephotozine's got nothing now for posting this.

well, be warned: first at all: numbers at youtube/facebook & co, always are faked: 10% of the numbers of viewers/followers may be the correct ones Smile
second: I fear, it's not as much the 'gear' (i.e. cameras, micros, etc.) which made them famous, but the companies behind them (here seemingly also the camera producersSmile - either those youtube-celebrities were 'fake-users' from the onset set up by advertising 'viral campaigners' or hired by those companies after they got a certain following/got famous amongst the crowd.
and third, if you head for becoming a serious photographer, it's not a good reference to be mentioned together with pewdiepie-diddeldaddeldoo or similar heroes of the underaged - may he boast of 19 million followers - mr. monster-trump got even more - not at youtube, but at the ballot boxes Smile) would you like to be put in a basket together with him? beware!
nevermind, youtube could and should be used as a platform for information, maybe learning-by-doing-videos: an ephotozine-channel at youtube would not be a bad idea, imho! where also users could participate, uploading clips showing 'making-of', etc. ... and/or ephotozine-staffers explain/present specific cameras, tricks (&treats) of photography... maybe even (but stated as!) advertising - less for big companies, but for rather unknown but interesting startups (those 'wanderlust'-guys, e.g.)

Hi Fabio,

The article is designed to give vloggers, and those thinking of becoming vloggers, an idea of what kit successful youtubers use so they can choose a camera ideal for vlogging. We aren't commenting on what's made them famous. The subscriber numbers are mentioned so that they can be ranked in order of popularity.

ePHOTOzine does have a youtube channel, you can check it out here:

Love the list! I have the Canon PowerShot G7 X myself. I would have loved to have seen my man Casey make the list though.
