massimogori: Barney, please be careful with daring comparisons that may force us to gauge the rest of your writings. For your information, there are physical and mathematical reasons why a very good vinyl system is superior to CD. In simple words, in digital there is no signal beneath noise floor, in analog there is an entire world and there are vinyl pickups that exceed 100 db signal to noise ratio. And no, if you have the right pickup, to earn and turntable, you will not hear clicks and pops.

Next time, please compare an outrageously expensive camera with an outrageously expensive turntable.

Gottfried, I am aware of techniques that allow digital recordings to show signals beneath the noise floor. Unfortunately they are far to be mainstream: cd originated as a sad attempt to recover money spent on the '70s for video disk and quality was clearly not the main issue.
Re to S/N ratio, please check out some top of the range Clearaudio cartridges.
You are right that vynil from difgital masters inherently share the limitation of most digital recordings geared at CD. Those masters that utilise the exotic technologies you mentioned before, however, shine on vinyl (because of lesser limitations on the music reproduction side, because the technologies you mentioned are not available in mainstream home music reproduction systems.).
Besides, there are plenty of records made starting from analogue recordings.

Amazingly flexible and this is just the start. Wait till Apple removes also the number keys.

Food for thought for all the people who quickly defined the Nikon 1 series as crap.

Scart and composite video outputs are missing. Furthermore I think they should foresee a 12 V battery powered D.C. input and two AC outlets with inverter for powering a second screen or a printer while on the go.

Hope they are already in the pipeline and will come out as dongles, this time carrying trolley included.

Too bad. Such a hot product!

Money is that thing that, in the long run, splits away from stupids.

Thanks, DPREVIEW, for taking each and every opportunity for showcasing Kickstarter campaign and providing help in validating the above golden rule.

Nobby2016: i bought a fuji compact for my sister 5 years ago.

it´s the worst compact camera i have ever seen.
the images are ALL smeary no matter what ISO.

my lumix LX2 from 2007 is making better images.

You are not in good terms with your sister. Are you?

Count them. 4 Canon L lenses.

Yeah, you pointed out a Canon weakness with respect to Leica, but the are rapidly catching up. They are increasing prices wildly with new lenses.

The layer of ions from the air attracted by the electrostatically charged metal coating of the barrel will deviate away from the front lens the photons diffracted by atmospheric dust. This translates into enhanced microcontrast that can be easily confirmed by any common deep sea diver while biking, provided its pressure tight suit is properly fitted.

That justifies the premium price.

Looks like the spent more hours for the press release than for the design of the product.

Btw, thanks Dpreview for spotting another essential product.
