    Anyone who is an active YouTuber here? How often do you upload videos? What camera do you use? Mic and video editing software? :)

    Don't know what qualifies as YouTuber. I have more ideas than time.

    But if I had the time, I would use what I have now:
    * Primarily my GH4, Blackmagic cameras; prime MFT lenses (Olympus, Panasonic and Voigtlander).
    * Occasionally: GoPro and Samsung 360 cameras;
    * Primary editing: mostly FCP X, on my Mac Pro and MBP.
    * Occasionally: Apple Motion 5 and After Effects;
    * Not yet: Legit copy of Da Vinci Resolve, but have not used it yet. Looks powerful and fun, but no time for something that deep.

    IMO, YouTube seems to be better for viral videos. But Vimeo generally has better, more artistic videos. Quantity vs quality.

    My favorite video last month is on Vimeo:

    I think we have the same quandary. I have 2 channels, one is for my guitar covers and the other one for "tech". I used to upload frequently before but just stopped making for more than 2 years now. I have a lot of ideas but have no time and making a video, I think requires a lot of time, effort and passion. Btw, I use note 2 and iphone 5s but I already sold my 5s. Thanks for the reply. ☺:)

    Wow! You're so blessed to have a GH4 and Blackmagic camera! GH4 is my dream camera (have you tried Panasonic fz1000?). I also read a lot that Blackmagic cameras have high dynamic range.
    How about for audio recording? Have you considered buying a zoom H1 or H5/H6?
    I agree with you, Vimeo offers generally better videos (more like a portfolio) and while YouTube, there's almost no quality control but I choose YouTube over Vimeo because, when browsing videos on YouTube, loading videos is much faster than Vimeo. I don't know why, but correct me if I say anything wrong because these are all my opinions and no programming theory to back it up; 1.YouTube "decodes" videos better, faster equals faster video streaming 2. YouTube's platform is much better. 3. YouTube has more servers.
    I don't know if any of I said made sense. I really don't know how to put my thoughts exactly in to words.
    I used to be a subscriber of supersurf unlimited Internet plan until it was obsolete, and personal experience, YouTube loads video fast and video streaming is a breeze (whether using Chrome or the YouTube app) while Vimeo is slow, waiting time is long either on chrome or their Vimeo app.
    Currently, I'm under iphone plan, just the same. Vimeo is still slow to load videos when streaming and YouTube never fails to be smooth sailing.

    For audio, I use my Zoom H1 and/or H4n, which I've had for at least 5 years. The H5 and H6 are steps up, but much depend on your actual needs. I want (but no need yet) the Zoom H2n for its ability to record 360 audio! So if you pair that with a 360-degree video, the audio will "spin" with the video.

    Yeah, YouTube has more resources, so generally better streaming performance, especially for the "third world viewers", with pricey-but-slow Internet. Plus, YT and FB are more progressive, being the first to support advanced formats such as 360, virtual reality, live channels, etc. Like you said, Vimeo seems preferred for artistic portfolios.

    Are there big Pinoy YouTubers who aren't celebrities or media channels?

    Helllo, this is Stampy, and welcome to another minecraft video. - hear this all the time at home. my son wanted to start a channel similar to Evantube. I was kinda concerned of security of having my kid and our community shown so I didn't encourage it (of course, thi presupposes that people will actually watch it) hehe

    ^I think my son had similar aspirations. I did not discourage him. I only asked him how he was going to rise above the noise.

    He is only a freshman in high school now, but he is already his school's video editor. I didn't teach him. He knows that I use FCP X, so he learned it, and Adobe Premiere too on his own.

    Live and let live. :)

    Check out the Sony Handycam CX405. It's very inexpensive and can shoot for long hours straight. It's what I use for my indoor videos.

    Just a few feedback. You should work on your framing and transitions. There are times when the subject is cropped from the frame. Also it’s better if you utilize natural lighting if you don’t have a lighting set up. From the looks of it you were shooting in the dark and relying on the flash of your camera. Keep it up and just enjoy what you are doing!

    aspiring youtuber here, haha. i've been whipping up channel ideas for quite some time now, but i can't seem to decide on a specific niche to settle on. seems like the most successful channels focus on something specific to build a loyal following/community.

    Just try anything, the important thing is you're making videos. Even the best YouTubers started small and their videos weren't great, visually wise or content wise. Like MKBHD, I think he started with making videos using the camera of a laptop.

    Aside from abs-cbn and gma, which both upload LOTS of videos on Youtube to try to capture more views, have you ever wondered what’s the biggest YouTube sensation in the Philippines?
    Right up there among those network behemoths is the “Kids Toys” channel, which from time to time has been the number 1 YouTube channel from the Philippines.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/TheEducVideos
    The father of the two kids in the videos is an elementary school teacher who tried to find a way to add to his meager income. They live in a southern province, and he would take the bus to metro manila, buy a toy, travel back home and take a video of his kids unboxing the toy. They have been quietly earning a huge amount from YouTube. And nobody I know had ever heard of them, or seen any of their videos.
