Vlogging using smartphone or mirrorless camera

When I started to vlog, one of the challenges I faced is capturing good quality video. This is really come down to the hardware set-up. 

In order to capture good quality video, there are 2 important types of equipment, which is the camera and the lighting. Once upon a time, I was into DSLR photography and I quit this hobby for almost 10 years. Now it is time to pick up the knowledge and skill to be applied in my vlogging journey.

I didn't want to buy a separate camera because I want to keep everything in the smartphone ecosystem. But, I also want to test this and share my experiences with you. I want to test the video quality using a mirrorless camera compared to the same price range smartphone. At the moment, I am using Samsung Galaxy A72 as my daily driver and I just bought a Sony A5000 with kit lens 15-50mm OSS. I also just bought a Meike MK-35mm f1.7 lens with manual focus.

Besides having a decent video recording device, I need to set up the lighting properly. This is another challenge to me because I do not have a dedicated working place for vlogging, i.e a shooting room. My lighting setup changes frequently.  Therefore, I can not produce a consistent video quality (which upset me a lot).

Anyway, here is the comparison and share with me your thought in the comment below. Once again, if you like the content that I provide, please remember to follow me and I look forward to seeing you soon.
