Contestant number one is the Canon EOS M10 Mirrorless Camera Kit with EF-M 15-45mm Image Stabilization STM Lens Kit. Another very affordable option from Canon, this is a great option for those who are just getting into filming music videos. Because of the quality that Canon is known for, even at a much lower price point than professional cameras, this one still delivers stunning detail even in challenging lighting situations. This is another bonus for those on a budget, since you may find yourself limited in how much lighting equipment you have available for shooting your music videos.

This is the first camcorder on the list, and you may be surprised to see one. After all, it's 2021 and don't camcorders seem so 1997 instead? Don’t overlook this camcorder because it seems old school, it is a powerful tool and may just be exactly what you’re looking for to shoot incredible music videos, but you’re not quite able to splurge on a professional camera.
You can also use this camera to take photographs, as well as shoot full HD 1920x1080 movies at 24p and 30p in MP4 format with ease using manual movie control. This camera has a ton of easily accessible image settings that you can control with Creative Assist, including brightness, background blur.

|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|This is a very feature-rich camera that is also affordable and easy to use. It’s a perfect option for someone getting into shooting music videos and just starting out with editing. The camera itself is designed to assist with lighting, focus, image quality, and coloring, so it’s great for those that aren’t quite ready to take on additional tools, equipment, and software to edit their music videos. It’s also compact and lightweight, so it’s very convenient to take anywhere you need to shoot your videos!||This camcorder produces a lifelike tone and detail thanks to the 24Mbps recording. The VIXIA HF G20 not only captures images in Full HD but records and outputs at 1920 x 1080 as well, which gives you Full HD from lens to screen. We love how this can up your music video game by producing cinematic style films, as well as how Canon’s 10x HD Video Lens produces more professional-looking video content.|
