What is the best video camera to use to shoot you tube style jewelry tutorial videos?

I'd recommend anything that is NOT a camera phone, that has good sound.

So if you have a digital camera that can record video and has decent sound you should be ok.

Also lighting is important.

If you want to make some serious videos go with an HDV or miniDV camcorder.

The Flip and RCA Small Wonder are decent and affordable and cost about $150 and are compact and made for youtube.

Perhaps you can test some out at a local store.

Good Luck

A digital camera should be fine. I think there are also cellphone cameras that are good enough. The higher the resolution, the better.

A digital camera works fine. I won't recommend using mobile phones, sometimes the audio is not so good. And you're going to be discussing jewelry making so your video must have 10/10 for audio and video.

My husband does film and video production. He uses a Panasonic camera. Way too expensive for the average person. But I did ask him and he said a lot of folks are using this camera called the Flip camera.

Most amateur (Youtube) videos are recorded with just using the on-board camera mic. That is the reason most videos sound echoey or boomy. If it is a professional video you are trying to produce he highly suggested getting a camera with a microphone input.
(But then of course you will need to get a microphone you can clip on)

Onward...

To me,
A decent video camera for youtube should not cost more than $100. There are a lot of camera for $99 if you search online. To to slickdeals (cant insert link, but you can just type on google slickdeals then it will give you the site). I bought one for $99 online without tax and free shipping.

Just to make a video product (describe your products & show) then you do not need to have an expensive video camera. After you should, you can use software such as adobe premier cs3 or other video editor to edit and video.

Sony is very expensive so take away from them. lol

I do video and jewelry photography, so I have a few things to add.

I disagree with Kfinds. With everything that goes into camera technology, you will not find a very decent camera for under 100 dollars. Especially one that will take good enough quality pictures of JEWELRY. Remember, you are trying to capture detail at very close distance! Not home videos.

I highly recommend going with a digital still camera. Most of them come with a video option now, so you can both take still pictures, and do videos. Two cameras from the price of one! Canon is excellent. I recently got a Kodak for under 200 dollars and it does descent half HD video (1080 x 720). I would go to Best Buy, and see if they have a sale going.

Because you are filming jewelry, you will want something that can get in close and still focus. Most consumer brand video cameras cannot focus at such close distances, or have lenses which are too wide (meaning they are built to capture large areas all at once); all of which will give you trouble. So having a digital still camera with a good focus and zoom, will enable you to get the detail and small distance you need. 

I would also advise looking into a tripod too.

Some of these cameras already come with software to help you quickly export your videos onto youtube. But, you will also have to look into software too.
