Looking for sponsors, crowdfunding for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

This might look a bit desperate - but I'm really dying to test the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 and see how it compares to the Nokia Lumia 1020 and 808 PureView, since I think this is the league we're talking about here. And I tried everything, but Panasonic simply doesn't have enough devices in either Germany or France to send me a review sample. Trust me, I tried.

Now I'm planning to buy one in Germany this weekend, although I actually can't afford to. So now - in the most unusual post I ever published since I started this club - I'm looking for sponsors. Are you as curious as I am if the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 will be worth the investment, please make it possible for me to write about it here. To write a review about all its aspects, hardware and software. To make shots in all kinds of situations. Sponsor me and I'll try to do whatever you'd like me to do with it. Squeeze everything out of this prestigious smartphone camera.

I only need the Lumix CM1, not the expensive car in this picture! :-) And I don't need to collect the full €899,90. I'd be very happy with half that amount. So I'd like to aim for €450. If you have PayPal, please use the button on the right hand side and mention "Lumix CM1".

If you don't have PayPal however, of course I'd be happy to provide you with my account numbers if you would like to make a contribution. Your donation doesn't have to be huge, everything is welcome. I'm proud to welcome thousands of visitors here everyday, I've always been happy to serve you my content - as you know, the club is open 24 hours and all posts are on the house :-) Now I can only hope there will be enough of you to show appreciation for what I do - and do even more than I can afford to myself. But I'll be buying the Lumix DMC-CM1 anyway, so your contribution will actually be used for it!

In future updates here, I will let you know how much money has been collected to achieve my goal. I'll mention your name here and add you to the list of sponsors (unless you don't want me to). I really hope you'll be willing to help me out! :-)
