Re: Need advice for a new camera

Hi,

a brother-in-law of mine is also into paragliding so I have a bit of an idea of what this sport may represent in terms of physical stress for the cam - not only bumps.

Owning myself the RX100Mk1 I have some doubts if the entire RX100 line would be the right tool for your purpose. Yes, the cam is light, compact and provides excellent image quality. But being that small it may be also fiddly in operation - and I imagine you wearing some type of gloves when flying, besides being somewhat occupied with controlling your paraglider.

When I've seen people carrying some bigger gear in paraglider flights those were guests in tandem flights. The pilots I've seen usually carry more compact gear, like GoPros. But If you're looking for better IQ then perhaps cams like the Sony ZV-1 or the RX-0 MkII might be worth to consider.
