Using an iPod touch for Vlogging


Apple launched the iPod touch 5th generation in late 2012, bringing a new amazing front facing camera. It's a 720p FaceTime camera. There are a lot of small cameras good for vlogs, but is the iPod touch 5G a good choice?

If you want to record yourself and post on YouTube, you need a good camera. Canon have cheap ones that record in high definition. But as we know, they are cameras. Just cameras. You will need a computer to transfer, edit and upload your media. That's why I would prefer an iPod. With the Apple device you'll be able to see the display while recording yourself, edit your footage using iMovie for iOS and upload using YouTube Capture app. It's very easy to work this way.

Review: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Lens - Test Images/Video

At a price point of around $100, the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 prime lens is on the radar of many new DSLR owners. I decided to get my hands on one six months ago and I haven't regretted it for a minute. Listen in on my thoughts paired with some test photos/video to help you decide if this lens is right for you!

As seen in the test footage, this lens performs beautifully in low light situations. This lens also gives your shots a very cinematic look with dramatic depth of field at the 1.8 aperture setting. I highly recommend this lens for any and all DSLR owners due to it's affordable price and impressive image quality. The plastic body is a sacrifice when mounted to a sturdy DSLR camera. You will never want to use your kit lens again! Except for vlogging, as mentioned in this video... ;)

Thanks for watching/commenting/subscribing! You guys rock! Any questions are welcomed in the comments below.
