Best Pocket Video Camera For Vlogging? Canon G7X vs. Sony RX100 III

What is the best camera for making videos or vlogging on Youtube? Both the Sony RX100M3 and the Canon G7X have great video quality, flip out selfie screens, and fit in your pocket.

Although we ended up returning both cameras for unrelated reasons, I think the canon is the best all around fully automatic pocket video camera for YouTube. But there are some limitations, and the Sony RX100iii excels in a few areas.

Which camera did you enjoy watching more? Most of the video was recorded with a Canon 70D, 18-55 kit lense, and a Rode Videomic Pro.

All footage (including the 70D) is not graded, corrected, or altered in any way. Both the G7X and RX100M3 were used with automatic focus and white balance settings.

    I have the 70d and sometimes its frustrating when i am recording my videos and it just focus to the background, i just bought the g7x for my travel vlogs when I am lazy to put out my dslr and its really heavy. I use 18-135 mm lens by the way.

      Yea we have the same problem sometimes. If we’re going to be sitting in front of the camera we’ll switch to manual focus. Otherwise the trick is to keep your background darker than you. If there’s a bright light behind you, it will go back and forth in focus. Hope that helps!
