Recommend me a CSC camera
Thinking of the canon EOSM..
Need to be able to carry on my camelback straps and quick and easy to use, will be photographing fast moving mtb’ers and panoramic mountain vistas etc
Is there anything else to consider? as I’m not very knowledgeable on these things

In the long term if you think you will end up investing any significant money in a CSC system, I’d urge you to look at Olympus for lots of reasons.
-in body stabilisation
-choice of both Olympus and Panasonic lenses many of which hold their ground against fairly expensive SLR lenses
-I doubt many would argue against the best CSC body is the Olympus OM-D E-M1 .. it does cost a few bob though
If its DSLR though, I’ll talk all day about Pentax 😛Posted 4 years agoCHBSubscriber

Just hd a look inspired by your post.
This is a steal for effectively £300 from Amazon.doug_basqueMTB.comSubscriber
Hey Nasher, I’m using one for pretty much what you are. I have a panasonic gf1 which is fantastic. We are lucky to often have lots of light eh?! The 20mm lens means it goes in a bag on my pack strap and I don’t notice it. Lives there and rides with me every day for the last few years and its been fine. I shot all my videos with that. I have tried a few other similar cameras and the diffences are slight enough to not make a difference to me. Recently I bought a bigger camera for shooting on special occasions, the quality difference is huge and video is amazing but it can’t live on the bag strap so is pretty useless for what I use the gf1 for and what I think you are wanting. Also the gf1 has buttons for almost everything so I can use it easily with my gloves on.
So basically I’m rambling but I think any of the compact system cameras will be good for you, get a smaller one and get a lens like the 20mm pancake which is amazing and leaves the camera v small. If I had money I would replace the gf1 with the gx7, or the gx1 which you can get cheaper now. Panasonic always seem to score highly on video quality too.Posted 4 years ago
