 @mdelorme I just picked up a Sony a6000, coming from a Canon T3. Thinking I’d like to get a point and shoot for biking and excursions with the fam. Can you give a few suggestions? That may be heresy to a pro but figured you know quite a bit.
  • + 2
 Love the sonys Im running pretty much the same set up but have a A6500 with the 18-200 as my main rig with a 35mm1.8 as a back up. The Peak design clip is a total life saver.

 Thanks for the video! So do you leave the lens without a cap when the camera is hanging in the capture clip?
Just recently I found myself riding down a trail taking the line with a puddle in a corner because ... well just because. Anyway the moment I was hitting the puddle I realized that this was a really bad idea with the camera hanging from the shoulder strap and a rather expensive lens pointing down towards the mud without a cap. It was too late but luck was on my side, no dirt hit the glass.

 Cool story

 Not usually, lens caps will fall off.

 Stick a UV filter on the lens - problem solved.
  • + 1
 @mdelorme: yeah, that's why it wasn't on. I don't trust them.

@ninjatarian: I don't like clear filters, they mess with image quality, especially the cheap ones. But it's not a problem, I'll just avoid splashing through puddles when the camera is out (which doesn't happen that often anyways, I'm not a race photographer) in the future.

 @mdelorme This was a great video, but I'd love a breakdown list of the gear. I want to mountain bike with my Canon 70D so I can vlog with it and shoot some action video and pictures. Currently I have a 10-18mm, 18-55mm, 50mm, and the 70-300mm DO lens. Eventually I'd love to get some "L" glass, but I believe I can get some nice video and shots with what I have. I have a Gorilla pod tripod too. I would like to have a pack for it, and of course some tools, and hydration. Any help or ideas of a pack that would work for vlogging and actually riding would be great. If anyone has some Canon insight that would be great!

Thank you,
Don

 There are too many videos with the “click here” at the end and no actual button that appears on the screen. Like c’mon.

 Hey Matt! Really cool video! Thanks! I saw you also use a sony a7III now, what are your thoughts about it as a action camera?
  • + 5
 Cheers, yeah the A7III is definitely on par. A stripped down A9. I've had no issues with it.
  • + 1
 @mdelorme: Thanks Matt! I have an a7RII and it really doesnt work great for action so was looking to pick up an a7III so thanks for the feedback!!
  • + 1
 @tribal-dmr: I was looking into the a7RII for action as a possible replacement to my 5D Mark III - what don't you like about it for action shots?
  • + 2
 @RichardJBos: the autofocus is a bit slow but manageable, however the biggest problem is a low burst rate and a the time to fill the buffer and the time to clear the buffer... Since you have to write 42mp photos to your card it takes a while when you shoot a 5-6 frame burst... Each photo is between 80 and 100mb...

 no beard balm and or post ride bourbon?! I was completely off I guess.

 I need that clip.
@mdelorme do you think it'll hold a canon 6d with 70-200 lens on backpack strap??
  • + 1
 I've ridden some mellow singletrack with a D750 / 70-200 on the Capture clip. Works fine, albeit with the lens swaying around a little. I'd definitely recommend adding one to your pack.

 @russellpj: awesome thanks for the help!!

 I have a question for you : why a hybrid ? Is it because it is lighter than traditional camera ? Or better ?

 mirrorless cam ftw

 Sony A9 mirror-less shoots 20 frames per second. awesome!
300-400 shots per battery? not so good
as great as the camera is I have read many reports that the lenses are just not that great, yet!

I'll stick with my Nikon D4 until Sony's lenses get a big quality boost.

 The 70-200 2.8 GM is actually mint. No one wants to shoot 20fps. You'd spend a year editing an hour's worth of shots
  • + 4
 Those numbers are way off. Don't know where you got them from. I usually get 1,500 shots per battery
  • + 2
 @mdelorme: @Copajoe It seems standard these days that people who have never owned or shot with a Sony have these opinions based on previous models. 1,500 per battery sounds exactly the same as me, as for Sony glass they are by far the best i've used. 24-70 GM and 70-200 GM walk all over my previous Canon equivalent!

 @Leanback: It actually depends a lot on how you shoot. If you keep your camera on, Sony drains very fast and 1500 per battery is not possible. If you switch it off, its probably possible. Had a chance to use both sony and d850 for a longer period of time, and both are probably the best cameras, you can get now. In the end It's about your preferences. But hey Matt, those 300g/any len with the camera/ difference is not a big deal even when carrying two cameras. The only thing that matters is, if the camera works the way it should for you.
  • + 1
 You can change the battery
  • + 2
 @Leanback: yeah couldn't agree more. It's the future.
  • + 2
 @mdelorme: I am also a photographer and love that camera. as I stated, once a bigger range of lenses come out that meet my needs, that is where I am going. I read several reviews that the batteries are the issue. Not many shots. If you get 1500, it is better than what I read but still quite a bit under what the bigger DSLR's are doing today. I guess, you just get 3 batteries and you are good to go.

not hating, just quoting what I read. I have not used it once, just read all the reviews.

 I shoot mirrorless (Fuji), mainly mountain bikes, sometimes professionally - I've never used more than 2 batteries in a day and don't consider it an issue at all. Weight is the issue, pro full frame bodies and lenses weigh a ton. I think photographers focus (ha!) too much on specs and reviews - there's not many bad cameras out there at the serious end of the market - it's what you do with it. As Matt says - who the hell shoots at 20fps - just imagine the uploading and culling!

 @Gummo: But do you own a Sony? There isn't any need to switch it on and off to save battery.. If you have the camera set so that its goes to sleep quickly then you'll retain a lot of battery life? You also use the viewfinder to view images properly so could also lower the back screen brightness. Everyone just has the assumption that the batteries are as bad as previous which they aren't. Not only that, a battery doesn't weigh a lot, just buy another haha I had many of batteries for my Canon.
