Re: It depends on the camera

National Camera Exchange has cyclists on staff, so the question came up there. After doing some testing, presumably with some sort of accelerometer, they determined that 2 layers of bubblewrap beat any commercially available damping material. This is the 1” (25mm) bubbles, not the smaller stuff.

My instinct is that smaller cameras, with smaller moving parts, will be less likely to have a problem.
