In need of a compact camera for video
May 17, 2014

I need a tiny camera that'll fit in my pocket. It'll mainly be used for shooting video, but I do also take a lot of photos as well.

Last year I purchased the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and in terms of video, it was complete crap. I'm not exactly sure why or what was happening, but any time it seemed there was a lot of fast action or lots of detail in the video, the quality would just completely fall apart for a second. See here:

This was NOT altered in any way. This is a legit screenshot of the video saved at 100% quality.

So, i'm trying to avoid that. Can anyone recommend a camera similar in size (the smaller the better) that doesn't completely blow it in terms of shooting video? Lens mount doesn't matter, i'll take any suggestions at all.
