You can use any camera you want to shoot video for YouTube. But, if your camera spits out clips that make you like a yellowish ill-defined, mushy mass of pixels, you're going to have trouble getting and keeping viewers. Why not start with a good camera then, right? Right. Since any "good" camera will work, though, you'll probably want to start by deciding what type of shooting you want to do. There's little reason to spend hundreds or thousands on camera gear if you can accomplish what you want with a webcam or your phone. To that end, we picked out some of the best cameras that can be used for everything from simple live streams from your laptop to more polished productions. The picks are all based on the type of camera you might want with an eye toward budget. Note that if livestreaming is a priority, you might need additional hardware. You'll find suggestions for that as well as other accessories to consider following the cameras. With a small handful of exceptions, … [Read more...] about Best YouTube cameras and accessories

This means anyone can look at the operating system's code, or change it - this is how OEMs like HTC and Samsung add their own tweaks. That openness has often been a rallying cry for hardcore Android enthusiasts. Why use a closed platform like iOS, when you can have a free and open-source platform? But even from the beginning, there were components of Android that were closed-source. The Gmail app, Maps, Google Talk, and the Play Store were some of the earliest examples. To combat the always-present fragmentation of Android, Google offers many APIs through the Play Services Framework. As more and more apps switch to these proprietary APIs, they become less functional (or break entirely) on devices without the Play Store. Four years ago, Ars Technica wrote a … [Read more...] about This is what it’s like using only open-source software on Android
Casey NeistatChannel: CaseyNeistatSubscribers 11 millionOriginal camera: Canon Vixia camcorderCurrent main cameras: Canon 6D Mark II, Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, Sony A7R II and Sony A7S IINeistat says he likes to use Sony's full-frame mirrorless cameras when 4K "is a priority." But for most other things, he still prefers the 6D Mark II ($1,499) and EOS-1D X Mark II ($5,499), because he loves Canon's "color profile." He says he also appreciates the form factor of Panasonic's Lumix cameras and that flip-out screens are a must for any YouTube creator. That's actually the biggest complaint that many of the YouTubers I spoke to had -- that Sony's full-frame mirrorless cameras lack a flip-out LCD. But their hope is that the company will take that feature into consideration in future models.Of course, with Neistat being one of the biggest YouTube creators, people looking to break into the space value his advice. For those who want to start a channel, he says he'd recommend Canon's EOS 70D or … [Read more...] about The cameras YouTubers love
` Here at Android Central, we go through a lot of phones. Our amazing staff of writers has used just about every phone under the sun (even iPhones!), and most of us eventually settled on one device that meets our needs best. The same goes for apps and services, too — they're arguably more important than the phone itself, and everyone has a different setup that works for them. Whether you're looking for some inspiration for your setup or just curious as to what the Android Central team uses, here are the different ways we all use our phones! Alex DobieAlex is global Executive Editor for Android Central, and is usually found in the UK. He has been blogging since before it was called that, and currently most of his time is spent leading video for AC, which involves pointing a camera at phones and speaking words at a microphone. Find him on Twitter at @alexdobie. There's nothing all that unusual on my home screen, but there are a couple of favorite apps I want to call out. First is … [Read more...] about Hey Android Central, what’s on your phone?
Tips By William Gallagher Thursday, February 07, 2019, 12:17 pm PT (03:17 pm ET) There are very tempting reasons to try it but using a television as your computer's main display comes with issues. AppleInsider tells you what you have to consider and examines whether the low cost is worth the trade-offs.We tidied the living room for you. Everyone has done exactly this. We've spent an extremely long day in front of a monitor and we have gone home only to spend an hour or two more in front of a TV set. And while we're a bit more likely to watch the NFL on that screen than we are an Excel spreadsheet, these two different types of displays have become steadily more and more similar. Both are now very nearly always flat-panel displays. They might have a curve to them, but the days of the giant cathode ray tube sticking out the back are gone. True, a TV set is typically larger than a computer monitor, but then we watch it from further away. TV sets don't often come with FaceTime cameras … [Read more...] about How to use an inexpensive TV set as a monitor for your Mac, and why you might not want to
