Hi,

I

  • As i will travel by bike, i'm looking for some specific characteristics
  • the camera need to be small and light (easy to transport)
  • i will take photography but mostly use videos functionalities
  • good autofocus (especially for vlogging parts)
  • possibility to use an external micro
  • reverse screen
  • budget >= 1000 €
  • resistant (bad weather incoming and i will sleep everyday outside, in my tent)

I feel like a highend smartphone meets those requirements.

The Sony and Canon you mention are not weather sealed. I have no experience with this but I often wonder when I jog through the woods if the vibration is compromising my camera. There would be a lot of bike vibration.
