Olympus OM-D E-M5 — Serious Cycling Camera, Superb Video

As of late 2012, my favorite camera for when my aim is to shoot video while moving is the Olympus OM-D E-M5 [review] with the Panasonic Lumix 8mm f/3.5 fisheye [review].

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).

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.
