small news from the web

olympus_e-3_olive-533x400

If you have some time to spend in the world wide web we give you a list of news to read.

Everybody already wrote about it, the Olympus E-30 Firmware 1.1 is out! More infos on the official Olympus website
We found a nice Olympus SP-590UZ Review made by Photography blog. They really like the camera!

And what captured my attention on the same website is they have a Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR Review! Read it if you have time because this camera uses a new designed sensor.

For guys who speaks spanish there is an interesting Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7, Canon PowerShot SX200 IS and Samsung WB500 comparison on quesabesde.com.

Finally we found the first Olympus E-620 review. You can found it here.

Have a nice day!

advertising cut

As you have noticed the last two week we changed the advertising banners many times. We tried to understand wich banner would work better and serve you with the best and more accurate content. Last night our webmaster tried to apply a “single meet single” banner. We quickly told him to remove the banner as the content has nothing to do with our website. Believe us, we had more click on this banner as on the “normal” banner ;)
Normally google permits a use of 6 banners per page. We now cutted the banners number to three. We believe that is a good compromise. If you find the content made by advertiser interesting we get paid for every click. That makes our website costs sustainable.

We hope our homepage does look honest enough for you. And apologize us for every inconvenient.

P.s.: Please report every future problem with our website.

funny self-interview

We took a break and looked in forums for comments about our rumors and website. And it’s so funny to read what people think about us! So we put their opinions together and formulated some creative questions that we are going to answer ;)

1) The less-than-perfect spelling is because you are not native English speakers?

Exactly! Could someone help us to improve the English in our posts? :)

2) Are your rumors half recycled and half made up or otherwise?

A lot of people think that. There are a lot of forums worldwide and if you put pieces together from here and there you can always say our rumors are recycled. But have you ever read somewhere clearly that the Olympus E-450 is due for April? I don’t think so!

3) Tell the truth! You created this blog to earn money with advertising!

I will tell you what we have earned so far. The Google Adsense program prohibits us to give you exact numbers but we can use our imagination…ehm…

We paid 55 beers for olympusrumors.com (buying domain and transfer from old hosting)

We paid 23 beers for panasonicrumos.com

We paid 26 beers for 43rumors.com

and finally an expensive unlimited traffic hosting (to give you better access time to our website) 140 beers!

That’s more or less 244 beers ok?

So with Adsense we earnd 51 beers from 1th March to 30th March. Two donater more or less gave us 28beers (THANK YOU AGAIN!!!).

Our only goal is to cover the costs of our hosting/domain an obviously OUR BEER!!! Can you imagine how much it is? Hey, do you hear me? :)

4) Rumors are only things for unserious people who wan to joke with us…

First we are not only rational human beings, we have a big and important emotional part. I believe it is nice to dream a little and may our dreams influence Olympus and Panasonic!

Second I don’t joke with any of you when I give you the FT5 rumors!

5) I don’t believe you have any connection to Olympus…

No, we don’t know anyone inside Olympus, and we will never reveal how we get our FT5 news. I think it’s clear why…

6) Lol, your forum has only three registered users and one viagra post.

Who knows, one day I might need Viagra ;) Seriousely, it will take time to start up and we don’t force anyone to participate.

7) Ok after the last FT5 rumor (two micro four thirds cameras) we can say this blog is an unserious source.

Is that a serious sentence? Prove where we told something untrue…until now nothing. Keep waiting and shame on me if we were wrong!

Do YOU have more REAL questions?

See you tomorrow…
