I want to start vlogging, but I don't want to hold a camera all day.

I have the following preferences for the camera:

  • Hands Free
  • Easy to record with HD
  • Can easily record where I am looking
  • HD 720p @ 30 fps lowest preferred
  • Under $300
  • Chest mounted unless there's a head camera which is unnoticeable
  • Would prefer if the camera is unnoticeable (I'm shy of the idea of recording in public)
  • Weight: I'm not sure to be honest but anything under 5lbs sounds good.
  • Would appreciate if it can last over 4 hours of recording.

What camera options do I have?

  • Not sure if I'm right but, any action-cam can answer positively to your requests no?

  • Maybe the Samsung NX Mini 2.0, it'd be pretty visible though. (when you hold it out with your arm) But it does have a flip screen. $390 on Amazon.
