To make a high quality videos, you need a camera with good characteristics or capabilities for video recording, because not all the cameras are good for making a videos. Some cameras are able to take a high quality photos, but they don't make a high quality videos.

First you have to decide, if you want to buy a DSLR or Mirrorless camera. They use a different technology, but both have their advantages and disadvantages. Each of them can be good for making a videos.

Good camera for YouTube videos should have:

  • Image stabilization - good image stabilization is needed especially when moving the camera, walking etc.
  • Video Auto Focus
  • At least a 1080p resolution, but optimally 4K
  • Capability to record a required FPS in required video resolution
  • Flip Screen allowing to use a touch focus
  • Low-Light performance
  • Face Recognition
  • Apperture according to your needs
  • Good microphone or ability to connect an external microphone
  • Ability to use a high capacity SD cards or other external memory - some cameras have a multiple SD card slots
  • Light weight - if you plan to hold it often

You should expect a good camera for vlogging will cost you something. To make a quality videos, you don't need to buy the most expensive camera, but I don't recommend to buy the cheapest one.

You can make a high quality videos for YouTube with both DSLR and mirrorless camera. Choosing the camera type depends on what you plan to use it for.

Do you want to use it as a static camera on a tripod ?
Do you want to hold it ?
Do you want to walk with it ?
Do you want to record action videos ?

Each camera type has its pros and cons.
