The camera I got is an older model but new to me. Canon EOS M3. I wanted a small package with the three main things people are looking for to produce online content: flip-up screen, external mic, ability to swap lens. The M6 would have been a great choice but the budget favored the M3 - $300 vs $800.
This test video used the internal microphones and sounds pretty good. I did purchase a Rode mic to use in the future. For lenses I most likely will stick with the 18-55mm kit lens though you will see in the video the focal point / depth is pretty small (as I hold the jig and move toward the camera and toward myself). I haven't spent much time in the camera settings and suspect I can adjust this internally - or just learn how to hold up a jig.
My other tying videos we recorded with a Samsung HMX F90 which is an inexpensive, very basic, 10 year old camera I bought to record my kids high school sports And/Or a couple were made with a GoPro 7 Silver (this was too much fish eye for table top work).
For editing everything I have done in the last couple years has been using Davinci 16.
