Your choice will be led by your purposes and your budget.
The prices range from over £4000 (GBP) to under £500 (GBP) with models from Panasonic, Ordro and the Peawolcy.
The one that is a bit different - and may be all that you need:
An excellent pocket sized action camera which comes with a number of upgrades over the extremely popular previous model. The built-in gimbal is the secret to success as it provides 3-axis stabilisation helping content creators to capture smooth and sharp high resolution images and 4K/60fps videos.
Never under-estimate the amount of time that you will need to spend in editing your videos.
To do this you will need appropriate software. Again you can spend well into the hundreds of pounds/dollars/euros etc. or you can download free software. In my mind it is a no-brainer because most of what you will want to do can be done with some of the excellent free software that is available for PCs and MACs.
Check if your Mac comes with iMovie as free software.
It should, and it is available for you to use free of charge.
This is an excellent entry for those who are new to video editing. It will remain as a good video editor for a long time before you feel that you are ready to move on to something more advanced.
PowerDirector may be the choice for you. You can get a long way with the free version.
FREE SOFTWARE FOR EITHER PC OR MAC
It is not unusual for the providers of video editing software to provide a "free" version of their main "all bells and whistles" product. However, such "free" versions are only enough to give you a taste of the real thing. They tend not to be enough to meet your needs.
An example is PowerDirector365 from Cyberlink. The concept of the main software is really attractive to any of you who are wanting videos for use on the social media channels, or just to create some fun. There are video effects, access to free background music, a library of sound effects and so on. This is in addition to being able to edit both sound and pictures (e.g for colour).
However, with the free version many of the editing features are missing and access to supplementary files, such as the music library, are restricted.
So, my tendency is to sart with the free version to see if I like the way the interfaces work and to see if I really need the extras that are 'missing'. If I really think that the full software package is going to help me to be more productive then I will jump in and subscribe to the full version.
If you really like the idea of a modern social-media orientated vicdeo editing software then I would not hesitate to recommend PowerDirector365. Download the free version and see what you think. You can get it here.
TAKING VIDEO EDITING FURTHER
Once you have mastered the basics of video editing you will want to move up to a more advanced level. One possibility is to move to DaVinci Resolve. (Be warned you will need a high-end PC if Windows is your platform.)
This software is very different from PowerDirector365. DaVinci Resolve is designed for heavy editing of both sound and vision. It does not have a social media vibe, though you can upload the editied file to social media sites.
The free version of DaVinci Resolve 17 retains many of the powerful features of the paid for version. Both versons, however, will require a significant investment of your time in order to get the best out of them.
This is fine for those for a deep committment to video editing, it may be a step too far for those of you who just want to get your videos edited, given some zassss and put out their for the public (or just your friends) to see.
ACCESSORIES FOR VIDEO
Your camera microphone and internal sound storage may not/probably will njot be good enough for the quality sound thatyou want for your videos.
The JOBY Wavo PRO, is probably the most advanced On-Camera shotgun microphone on the market.
Feature-packed so that no shooting challenge is too great for Wavo PRO.
For example, bumps in sound from walking or camera movement are cleaned up internally.
You are left with a clean recording to back-up your in-camera sound recording.
