YouTube is the chief platform for vloggers to showcase their talent, and so, it’s good to buy gifts that will be relevant and useful.
Maintaining a vlog over the period won’t be easy, as costs start building up. Hence, gifts like a camera, microphone, or a laptop would be handy for them. So, what better time than Christmas to surprise the vloggers with something that have been out of their reach till now?
Here’s a list of some of the best Christmas gifts for vloggers that we recommend getting this year.
Canon G7x II Mirrorless camera
A good quality camera is the first essential thing a YouTuber needs. While a camera phone is good to start with, as the vlog gains popularity, a professional camera becomes a must. Canon G7x II Mirrorless camera offers DSLR type creativity and premium photo quality in any light conditions.
It features a 1.0 type sensor, Canon lens with bright f/1.8-2.8 aperture, and high-quality DIGIC 7 processing. The 20.1MP CMOS sensor with a back illumination offers gorgeous, fresh, and clear images in any light. 24mm 4.2x optical zoom and ISO up to 12,800 offer amazing shots in any environment. The Dual Sensing IS technology takes the cake offering crisp shots and steady movies.
EOS-like in-camera diffraction correction and Auto Lighting Optimizer ensures superior jpeg in low lights. Quick startup and intuitive 31-point AF allows users to capture the spontaneity around.
Sharp focus with MF peaking, Touch AF for cinema-type focus pulls, amazingly steady movie footage recording at full zoom, or the ability to shoot premium quality FULL HD 60p movies, are some of its other major features.

Where there’s a professional quality camera, there’s a need for a good tripod too. As the name suggests it comes from the e-commerce giant Amazon.
