What's a good and light video camera for vlogging/recording Youtube videos?

Hello, I'm looking for a camera (ANY BRAND AND MODEL) that's really good for vlogging and at the same time, recording Youtube videos.

I have been reading that Canon G7x or G7x Mark ii are good for the job but it's a little bit pricey in my opinion. Can anyone recommend me some more? I'm not very familiar with other camera models yet....

Panasonic G85 / GH4 is a good option and can be found quite affordably now.
If you only need 1080p (which is probably all anyone needs for blogging) I would look at the GH3 which can be found for a couple hundred bucks.

I've shot video with a lot of mirrorless cams and small cinema cameras, and for the mixture of quality and usability the Panasonic GH series is really the best. For specific things (lowlight, matching with a cinema camera) the A7s series is better, but for vlogging I think Panasonic takes the cake.

LX100 is also a very good camera, albeit less flexible/usable.

Think I'm going to buy one of those myself, Surfar I can throw away my little 'waterproof' Olympus P&S for kayaking and snorkeling.

Yes mate, me too.Its a big step forward.

Not only the stabilisation, the sped up footage is something i can use a lot.
