Re: Will vibration from cycling damage my camera?

I've been thinking about bringing a camera with me when I do road cycling.

Something like a RX100 series camera and similar point-and-shoot that could fit into a larger saddle bag of my road bike (or a stem bag, a top-tube bag...etc).

The issue is, I wonder if the vibration from the road, plus the occasional encounters with potholes and speed bumps, could damage the camera (particularly the retractable lens)

Is this something any of you have an experience on?

I have carried an RX100 for thousands of miles of cycling on roads varying from smooth to awful. The camera is just fine. I keep it in a padded case in a bag attached to my rear wheel rack.
