A Great Camera For Martial Arts VLogging

        VLogging is a fun thing that martial artists can do. It is fun to see yourself on camera and see how you are progressing. Uploading videos onto social media is also exciting and can foster a community with other martial artists worldwide and provide encouragement, support, and training tips. Martial artists pay extreme, close attention to movement and that is why we need a high quality camera. I recently bought a new Full HD camera. Previously I had used an Olympus Master FE-370. This was from 2008. The quality was good for its time, and when YouTube used to have decent quality for all videos. Now YouTube has changed its quality for uploaded videos and having an HD camera is a necessity.

        My new camera is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 340 HS. What do the numbers mean? I have no clue, but I can tell you this camera has slick picture and sound. It is smooth and works great. I bought it at Best Buy because the sales person helped me out and it is the kind of quality I want for martial arts VLogging. Check out a sample test video:
