Looks pretty cool actually. I don't love the idea of doing everything on a screen but they should sell a lot of these if the price is right.

Agree.  On the flip side it looks like you get access to a near complete set of controls on the phone app, which is fantastic for  >:D

I would imagine they would use at least DR100MKIII or greater quality preamp circuitry - if that's true, that's a great thing, as that is a very highly reviewed preamp.

gaijin:
It looks like the mics are removable - been waiting for this on the Sonys since the D1.

gaijin:
Love that they got rid of the internal Li-on approach from the DR100MKIII as well.  4 AA and that's it.
