I am an aspiring content creator in YouTube and a musician who does covers of random songs that capture my interest (mostly old school songs, new wave, etc). I have been doing coverts for YouTube since January of 2016, currently has 532 subscribers and about 50+ cover videos and 6 tech-related vlogs. I do unboxings of stuff i recently purchased. Stuff that suddenly realize I need, but only those that I can immediately afford
Now, I have tried fundraising here in gogetfunding for 4x already, because I really need help to be able to buy the gears I need which are currently not so affordable for me and my salary couldn't compensate. One of which is a mirrorless camera (and hopefully a gimbal). I am eyeing the Canon EOS M50 which costs around Php 45,000 (Philippine Peso) or about U$869.85, and I am only getting PHP 350 ($ 6.77) daily or Php 7350 (U$ 142.08) / month, so having my dream camera is quite hard to reach at this point.
Now, my reasons for wanting a mirrorless camera are as follows:
- I am a person with disability (PWD) with difficulty in walking. So I was advised that if ever I want to get a camera, I go mirrorless over DSLRs, which is a valid point.
- I am also a live musician. I play with a band or 2. I have started in the band in 2008 and one of my regrets was not being able to invest on a camera to capture memories of my gigs. Now, 11 years later, I am not so sure how much time I have left in the band, so I woul;d want to have memories of my gigs filmed with a decent camera (I’m usally usingf my phone or my cheap action cmera (which produces horrible audio quality) and my greatest woes is the battery and storage. So I figured it is really best to have a separate camera for all my content creating needs as my phone doesn’t last long ion filming sessions.
- I am an aspiring vlogger who wants to produce good quality content for my channel, and having a decent camera is a good start. My channel has not started monetizing yet, thanks to YouTuibe for raising the stakes/requirements again (I had been eligible for monetization starting in November 2017 but due to the requirements being raised again, my eligibility was revoked.
- I wanted to do some tutorial videos on my channel
- So there you have it. J I do really hope that I can get support here. You can subscribe to my channel and see my contents here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtAvy5LbzvHPBjdlkSjnDSA
