Hi,

  • 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)

Bike vibration it is not a problem. As i said, i will use my GoPro when filming from my bike. The GoPro stabilization is enough. I already tested it and the quality video is great.

The camera will be to film all scenes except when i'm cycling or climbing.
