    Why do you need to film them? Can't you just rip/download them?

    I use a sony a7s, but now a days you can get away with using a smart phone for simple videos.

    How can you expect to be anything in life with that mentality, "Hey, Just Steal Videos". Its called make your own content that is original and that is how you grow a youtube channel dork.

    Mate, Sitll I'm using canon 70D :) It's giving better service. If you don't have more budget then you can buy canon body within your reasonable price but you have to buy better lens. If you wanted to qualitative video then must you needed better lens.
    I'm doing these job and making more money. Strategy is the most important thing in these field.
    What about your earning per month? Please share with us.

    I use a 60d and it's a great entry level camera that's affordable. The better purchase would be the 70d though, since you can set it to auto focus in real time automatically.

    I just use my phone to record videos but sometimes I use my Nikon camera too. I just find it easier to upload phone videos, I don't need to transfer it to my laptop anymore. :D

    I think it really depends on what kind of videos you plan on making. If your just doing random things like vlogging I think smartphones will do you fine, especially since the s7 has a great camera now. However if you plan on making high quality content where you plan on doing lots of editing you cant go wrong with the cannon 70d. It really depends on your content.

    ^ most smartphone cameras are embedded with gps location, maybe you will find this fact useful in some way

    IM all the way.
    I am great with computers but useless with most other technology. When I made the move to recording videos I found it overwhelming selecting which hardware to use. I'm happy to say I've found a solution that works for me and I'd strongly recommend this setup to any amateur:

    Camera: EOS 700d (don't go for the 600 as you can't attach a microphone to it) this will create the auto-focus effect which looks amazing. To create that effect, I have some special lens that I don't know the name of. A quick Google search will reveal that though I'm sure.
    Microphone: Pro Rode Shotgun

    The microphone is just as important as the camera. The Pro Rode Shotgun is well worth the investment.
