Not everyone wants a vlogging camera stacked with 4K (or even 1080p), not to mention your budget might not allow it, but still want to vlog with decent quality. The Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS offers that niche with a 20 megapixel image sensor and, more importantly, 720p video capturing capabilities. It might be the best vlogging camera on a budget.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS\r\nThe Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS, in its compact nature and size, can give you the power of 20 megapixels and 720p video\u2014but fits right in your pocket.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nFor such a cheap camera, we were rather surprised by the ELPH 190\u2019s 20 megapixel camera. Then again, this is Canon we\u2019re talking about. Its image quality is captured by combining its 20 megapixel CCD sensor and DIGIC 4+ image processor. What impressed the most, however, was its optical image stabilization. This kept pictures clear and focused\u2014especially with its wide angle 24-240 mm F3. 0-6.9 10\u00d7 zoom lens.\r\n\r\nBattery life is okay at 190 shots, but even better in ECO mode, bumping it up to 240 shots; 50 minutes of video otherwise. Speaking of which, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS only shoots at 720p. Now, to be fair, 720p HD video is still good. Plenty of YouTube channels stop at 720p. If you want 1080p, check out the Canon Vixia HF R700 Camcorder Vlogging Camera.\r\nDesign\r\nWhat you\u2019ll immediately notice about the Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS is its size; it\u2019s a very compact camera. You can easily tuck it into your pants or, better yet, into a purse of backpack of some kind. On the right-hand side are buttons such as a dedicated video button, auto mode, scene modes, a Wi Fi button, and a hidden memory card slot.\r\n\r\nThe Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS\u2019s major flaw is a fixed LCD viewfinder. For someone vlogging, you\u2019d like to see your face and how it looks to a viewer, unless you\u2019re really good at eyeballing it (or use software).\r\nValue\r\nThe Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS is in a strange place. On one hand, it does well as a really affordable point and shoot camera; 20 megapixels takes great images. On the other hand, it isn\u2019t terrible at taking videos\u2014720p, various scene modes to add\u2014and comes with motion blur correction if you\u2019re on the go and stability while you\u2019re holding the camera.\r\n\r\nFor dedicated vloggers, who can afford it (it\u2019s still affordable), consider the Panasonic Lumix LX10. It\u2019s captures 4K video, though it\u2019s equal in megapixels (20.1MP), and a viewfinder that moves, or the aptly named Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Vlogging Camera.\r\nCanon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS Wrap Up\r\nWhen you\u2019re on a tight budget, the ELPH 190\u2019s 720p video quality is easy to look past; plenty of YouTubers still upload regularly in 720p (it\u2019s easier on your internet anyways). What isn\u2019t is its fixed viewfinder\u2014but that can be handled through software via PC. And when you aren\u2019t vlogging, you can take some great photos with its 20 megapixel image sensor.
