Olympus OM-D E-M5 — Serious Cycling Camera, Superb Video
Related: cycling, gear, Olympus OM-D E-M5, Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, Photography, road biking, video, White Mountains
A serious hobbyist’s camera, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 is about $999 and the Panasonic 8mm fisheye is about $799. I’d skip the kit zoom myself (get the body only) along with the 8mm fisheye, the Olympus Zuiko 12mm f/2 ED and the Panasonic Lumix G Micro 4/3 LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25mm f/1.4 ASPH — and you’re set.
Video image stabilization
See some of the White Mountains cycling videos for examples.
The Olympus E-M5 is an excellent camera for stills capable of superlative results, but it really excels for video because its 5-axis image stabilization makes the video watchable even when bouncing around badly (most other cameras will nauseate the viewer, such as my otherwise favored Sony RX100).

Aug 16, 2012 in White Mountains — “Hail-covered Meadow Crossing”
A mid-summer hailstorm covers the meadow near White Mountain Peak.
The Olympus E-M5 takes great still photos. It can hang around the neck on its strap when cycling (over the shoulder for stability), or be stowed in a hip pack or similar.
