I had a major iPhone malfunction last night and seriously almost lost my **** when I thought it had erased an entire days vlog footage. The mini meltdown prompted me to finally order a compact camera to live in my handbag for vlogging, of course I ordered in a moment of rage and did zero research ahead of the purchase so today with clearer mind.. I ordered another. The two cameras arriving tomorrow (excited? me?) are those below..
I ordered the Fujifilm first, in truth it was the hot pink that drew me to it and at almost midnight after a couple of drinks with dinner it seemed like a good idea at the time but having read some reviews today I am nervous that the video quality may not be as great as I’d need given that the it’s sole use will be filming. I read that it excels outdoors in natural light but I film a lot inside and I’ve had enough issues with poor quality low light cameras to last me a lifetime. That being said all reviews were positive.. it’s tough to find something that’s aimed towards a vlogger as most review these compacts for photography on the go with video as an afterthought. When I compare side by side the two are very similar, if anything the Fuji seems to have more options for still photos I’m just torn because I’ve read a little snippet of something negative about the Fuji and nothing about the Lumix so I thought I would put this out there in the hope that one of you may have one of these and can let me know what you think of it. I would usually post this on my ‘life’ blog (link) so apologies from the very non-beauty related post but there aren’t so many of you reading over there so I thought my best chance of feedback was here, hope you don’t mind.
Unfortunately I can’t get them out of the boxes and play with each of them to make my mind up (I can’t open the one I intend to send back) but I”m very excited to have a new toy arrive tomorrow in one of these beautiful candy colours – On that note I just thought of another benefit to using one of these over my iPhone, I will definitely be able to find it at the bottom of my bag!
