So you want to YouTube? If your like alot of people you've been using YouTube for a while now and your tempted to start your own YouTube video channel. But you don't want to break the bank with the high cost of a digital camera or perhaps you don't know exactly what you need in a digital camera to YouTube. Let us introduce you to the Fujifilm Fine Z70 12 Megapixel Digital Camera. This camera is definitely a friend of YouTube!
The Fuji Fine Z70 takes the best of the former Z-series cameras and combines it with an affordable price and HD movie capability. A key feature that we love about this camera is that unlike other digital cameras, you can zoom in and out while recording in HD video in a 5X optical zoom lense (most cameras have a 3X zoom lense). Another plus about this camera, which is different than most video cameras, is it records in native AVI instead of the standard MP4/MOV. This makes it much easier to edit your video using Microsoft's free Movie Maker software. A great feature of this camera is it comes with a rechargable battery with charger - no more buying expensive batteries everytime you are ready to start shooting! The camera takes both SD or SDHC memory cards and a USB cable to directly connect to your PC or MAC. Our favorite feature of this camera is that it can take 2 pictures at a time, one with the flash and then one without so you can pick which one is better.
In terms of weight and feel, it is solid and well built with parts of the outside constructed of high quality metal. It has a port on the bottom for a standard tripod. On this camera you can take many many pictures and HD Video with power to spare. The battery can recharge to maximum capacity in about 2 hours.
Included with the Fuji Fine Z70 is a software package that contains tons of features along with a single button to upload your selected videos or pictures to YouTube or Facebook. Definitely a plus in our books.
So, if you are looking for a full-featured digital camera to take videos for YouTube at an affordable cost, then go with the Fuji Fine Z70 12 Megapixel Digital Camera. You will not be disappointed. Care for a video response? :-)
