I am planning to buy a camcorder for use on a motorbike, using a RAM-mount. The automated image stabilisation sounds perfect for optimum vibration reduction.However, the camcorder must be able to shoot video while the LCD screen is closed because the wind will probably close it and the camera would be switched off. I did notice that the power on/off button is not locate in the screen recess, which is good.
Could somebody please confirm that M52 can shoot video with the screen closed ?

For motorbike and action better buy would be go pro hero 3. You can attach it virtually anywhere, on motorbike you have much better options to position the camera where the speed and action is, for example close to tyres/earth etc, and you get better fps, so you can make slow motions etc better.

This camcorder does not record progressive video natively!
What you see in the specification is a technical trick (filthy lie).
Before you buy one please learn extensively what 25PF format is.
