If you are little tight on budget then m4 is what you should go for. If you are ok with spending money then m5 Is definiteky our choice. But still m4 is a reasonable flip screen camera to go for .

  • Wi-Fi / NFC / Play Memories camera apps.

Sony DSC rx 100 m3

If m4 is still too much for you, then m3 is here for you. We would not really suggest sony DSC rx100 m3 to you. Because it lacks many feature compared to its successor. There is no dual recording, no intelligent autofocus, no HFR shooting.

It is comparetlivly cheaper but not really worth the pick. But no sensores can stop you from your ambissions. You can still get things going your way with this camera.

Nikon I j5

Nikon 1 J5 is one of the cheapest mirror less camera that you can buy right now. It has some impressive looks and really is worth the price. Comes with a lens and an amazing touch screen which is 180 degree flip able.

Nikon 1 j5 is the best Nikon flip screen according to us. Getting a mirror less camera at such a cheap price is really amazing. The only downside is that it is not so much of a low light performer.

Sony Cybershot DSC-WX500/B are the lower range point and shoot camera with flip screen. There is definitely no 4 k recording. This Sony flip screen camera lacks many features as compared to the Sony rx 100 series.

But if you are low on budget then this is the lowest we can offer in the entire list. Sony Cybershot DSC-WX500/B is the cheapest flip screen camera you can use for your Vlogging needs. The WX series not not that much similar to the Rx series.

Sony DSC HX90v

Sony DSC HX90v is another flip screen camera from Sony. You can see the features are mostly similar to the Sony Cyber shot DSC-WX500/B . but the Hx 90 is lot closer to the rx 100 series.

You will definitely not get 4k recording. Not great auto focus. But it is a good pick for the starters. Definitely RX 100 m4 would be a better pick but compared to DSC WX 500 hx 90 is a better option. It is good cheap flip screen Vlogging camera.

NIKON COOLPIX A 900 BLACK is the last point and shoot flip screen camera in the list. It has some pretty good features. Some good inbi=uilt stabilization, 4k recording, good autofocus. Not much to talk about this camera.

I am not super fan of Nikon cameras. Canon and Sony camera are better performers at many levels. Nikon still comes in the budget camera with ton of features.
