This camera is perfect for people who want something small, but high quality and the wide angle makes it great for vlogging.
The camera is 4k capable, but Bald tends to upload his videos in Full HD which is 1080p. This is most likely to save space on memory cards.
Oh and if you’re wondering what he does for audio, he just uses the internal microphone of the camera and sticks a piece of felt / sponge over it as a windshield. I mean it’s worked for him.
