Canon EOS 200D / Rebel SL2 - best camera for vlogging?

See all my sample movies and images so far at https://www.cameralabs.com/canon-eos-200d-rebel-sl2-review/

Canon's EOS 200D / Rebel SL2 is an ideal camera for vlogging - it has a fully-articulated screen that can face the subject, confident phase-detect autofocus with great face detection, and a mic input and hotshoe for connecting and mounting external microphones. In this clip I demonstrate how it comes together in practice by walking through Brighton's Lanes. I used the EF-S 18-55mm f3.6-5.6 at 18mm f5.6, a shutter of 1/50 and Auto ISO in Movie Manual mode. the quality was set to 1080 / 50p, and I had a Rode shotgun microphone connected to the mic input. Check out my review-in-progress at cameralabs.com for all my movie and photo samples so far!

Liverpool Cathedral with Leica 8-18mm - review completed!

I've completed my in-depth review of the Leica 8-18mm, an ultra wide zoom for Panasonic and Olympus mirrorless bodies. Over a long and enjoyable testing period, this zoom became my favourite wide lens for Micro Four Thirds thanks not only to its excellent optics, but also the ability to screw-in standard filters without vignetting - even my Lee Seven5 ND system. Check out my review at the link below and as always if you're ever shopping for anything at Amazon, B&H or Adorama, you can support me by first clicking through to them via the links on my reviews - thanks!

Canon SX730 HS review - a 40x superzoom in your pocket!

Canon's PowerShot SX730 HS is the company's flagship pocket super-zoom camera. It shares the 20 Megapixel resolution, 1080p movies and 40x optical zoom range of its predecessor, all packed into a surprisingly small body. Canon's added a tilting screen and Bluetooth for easier connectivity and effortless GPS tagging, but it faces tough competition from Panasonic's Lumix TZ90 / ZS70 which also offers a viewfinder, 4k video and a touch-screen, albeit with a shorter 30x zoom range. See how they compare in Ken's latest review at cameralabs!
