CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

Interesting. The politics of sourcing didn't occur to me.

Even if BSI was not commercially produced for larger area sensors until 2014, CMOS technology surpassed the Kodak CCD sensor assembly by 2009 ago in terms of signal-to-noise ratio and dynamic range.

I'm a little bit provocative, please take it with a pinch os salt I would like the new camera or has a retro look with dials and so on (I'm nostalgic) or is very innovative, like the T with a touch screen huge screen on the back and, of course integrated VF. Are we traditionalist or innovative?
