Good Camera for Youtube?

20 January 2014 - 11:50 PM

I'm shopping for a good video camera specifically for making YouTube videos. There are so many options to choose from. I think I'm leaning more towards a lower-end DSLR (including lens) for around $400 to $500. The more user-friendly, the better. I really don't know too much about cameras (but I have a huge willingness to learn).


The camera is for a wellness center. The doctor want's to make youtube videos showing different types of exercises and giving nutritional advice. I'm looking for a video camera that takes good indoor videos. The wellness center is lit by flourecent lights (not sure if that matters).


It's important to the doctor that the videos not be shaky. I'm wondering if I should also buy a tripod for filming the different exercises. Sound quality is also important, so I'm also wondering if I should buy an external mic and buy a camera that has the proper audio inputs.


Being a die-hard CAG, I'm looking for a good deal (even though it's not my money). I appreciate any and all advice you guys have. The doctor wants to buy a camera from eBay, but I'm not 100% sure buying a used expensive camera is the best idea. I'm hoping there are a few camera choices during the upcoming BB elite plus "Doorbuster" sale on Thursday.
