    This is from my trip to Ocean City for the classic car show. This was shot with an Olympus E-P3 using a Lumix 20 f/1.7 lens.

    From the tests I've seen, the only EVIL camera that can actually compete with DSLRs when it comes to speed is the Sony Alpha Nex 7 - and that one is MORE expensive than the DSLR I actually bought ! :D

    Granted, less space requirements would be sweet, but I can still manage.

    What type of speed? The E-P3 and OM-D AF fast and shoot fast. In fact, the OM-D is supposed to be faster than the NEX line.

    They have their pros and cons. For instance, the next shoot I'm going to do will have the OM-D and two primes in the same bag as my Dynalite setup and the only additional bag will be my battery. It's IQ can't match my 5D MKII, but I'm not taking a camera bag that weighs over 30lbs in addition to my light bag and battery. Not to mention that trying to fit a 5D MKII in a Crumpler 5MDH with two lenses and a flash on a motorcycle takes up a lot more room than an OM-D with two primes.

    RAM Mounting Systems, Inc.

    I use some of their brackets to hold my flash - not the cheapest of the cheap, but I found them to be strong enough to easily hold a heavy 580EX2 without it wobbling at all. This product is designed just for what you're after and should give a fairly firm hold over the camera.

    * rubber tipped heavy duty clamps at the hardware store:

    2 in. Spring Clamp-80002 at The Home Depot

    * Small tripod ball head

    * Bring the tripod head to the hardware store and find an appropriate bolt with matching thread pitch (I used to have it memorized but I forgot).

    * Drill hole in the handle

    * Bolt lock bolt and lock washers

    * Hack saw the bolt length down

    * Screw on ball head.

    * You may consider a smaller offset hole and machine screw to lock the ball head in place.



    I've done similar but usually for flashes or small P&S. You may need to shop around for a stronger more secure clamp for the larger camera.

    I'd personally be more inclined to buy a used GoPro that's small and has a protective case rather than putting an E-P3 on there that's exposed to the elements and other dangers.

    It is most likely to be a one-off anyway. I don't mountain bike but ride on the Greenway near my house. I'm trying to convince my partner to start riding and thought a video of a ride might help intice her to the fun.

    Kinda funny that Cell Phones get a forum but Mirrorless cameras which are comprised multiple photographic equipment manufacturers (Leica, Panasonic, Olympus, Sony, Fuji, Samsung, Pentax) still only get a thread. Oh well...

    Here are some samples from a recent family trip. This is the first trip I decided to leave behind (gasp) my primary system (Leica) or my DSLRs (Canon Pentax). I headed out with the E-PL1 and my new OMD EM5. Olympus can't seem to get their act together and resolve the battery availability issue for the Olympus OMD EM-5.... so 1 battery was it.
