PANASONIC DMC-ZS45 LUMIX: IS IT THE PERFECT VLOGGING CAMERA?

Thursday, February 25, 2016

Vlogging has become a huge part of my daily routine. Before I left on my trip to Cozumel, Mexico, I did enormous amounts of research on which camera is best for beginner vloggers that won't break the bank.
After weeks of youtube watching and blog reading, I decided to just take a leap of faith and order the Panasonic DMC-ZS45 LUMIX camera and I couldn't be happier. For such a simple camera, it does so much.


Here are some of the features it includes.

Small size (4.25"x1.26"x2.36")
The small size of the camera makes it easy for you to carry around in your purse or even pocket, but it's not too small that you won't be able to find in in the mist of all your other items.

180° Tiltable Monitor
This is the most important feature to look for in a vlogging camera. Without this, you will never know whether or not you are in the shot while talking straight at the camera to your viewers. A definite must have.
20x Optical Zoom
This is great for taking pictures or recording videos. It's pretty simple, if you want record something that's far away, this zoom will definitely get you there.

Wifi Connection
This feature is so cool because it allows you to upload your videos or picture automatically from your camera to any social media platform.

Selfie Wink Detector
This is probably the coolest feature any camera can have! Like who doesn't want to be able to place your camera down, have it facing you, and simply wink so it can take a picture?

Full HD Video Recording
This is the most important feature a camera needs for anyone. If quality is only fair on a camera, it can ruin your whole video. This is why I like this camera. The quality is great! While it may not be better than a more expensive camera choice, it still does the job.
The price of this camera is also AMAZING in comparison to other point and shoot cameras people use for vlogging. The quality is great and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who is interested in vlogging or can't afford a high end camera!

If you are interested, you can see the quality of the camera in my vlogs on my Youtube Channel.

  2. I need to look into this! Dey has the canon with a flip screen but I don't! But I have a nice canon dslr so I can't justify getting another one just for the flip. I want to try this out!
