What cameras do famous Youtubers and internet celebrities use?

Do you wonder what cameras famous youtubers use? We did some web research to look up the equipment of 62 Youtubers or other famous photographers and videographers. Here are the results.


what camera do famous youtubers use

We found a total of 66 Canon cameras, 14 Sony cameras, and 4 Panasonic cameras. (The number of cameras exceeds 62 because some Youtubers use multiple cameras.) There was only one GoPro action cam and one Red professional grade camera in this round up. There were no Nikon cameras, but Nikon does not target the prosumer video market so that is not surprising. We’re sure Nikon would win the still images category by a landslide. However, it looks like Canon is the clear winner here for Youtubers.

Most popular camera

We lumped the different models like Mark II and Mark III together to pick the winning camera. We’ll link to the latest version as well so that you can get the newest one.

Winner: Canon G7X

The winner by a close margin with 13 votes was the Canon G7X (Amazon link). The G7X is a high-end point and shoot with great image quality and video recording abilities. It’s more compact than a DSLR and easy to carry around. It’s definitely a favorite of Youtubers on the go.

Runner-up: Canon 5D Mark II/III

The Canon 5D Mark IV (Amazon link) is the newest version of this professional grade DSLR camera with interchangeable lenses. With 10 votes, the Canon 5D was just a little bit behind the G7X.

Make no mistake, this camera is expensive and will set you back a few grand. That’s not even including the price of lenses! However, if you want pro-level image quality from a full-frame sensor and lens customization, the Canon 5D Mark IV is a standard choice.

    Thank you for the big List! Great overview about the YouTube Scene.
    I bought the Canon G7 X Mark II, because most Vloggers use this camera.
    So I think, the camera should be good.
