Olympus micro four thirds rumors reaction

When you have a website like this you sometimes receive heavy critique. And that is normal. 34 days ago we announced that the Olympus E-450 will be released soon (See to have the proof ) I remember few people blaming on us. They accused us to announce false rumors to make money! This kind of reaction is completely understandable and human. Now that the Olympus E-450 has been announced I hope you will give us some more credit 😉

I bet with you the micro four thirds specs given by us are for 95% real. I expect Olympus to make some minor changes that’s why I say 95% and not 100%. And I can’t wait until summer to see your reation when the camera will be shown to the world 😉

Our website will be redesigned in May and hopefully be online on late May. This is necessary in order to make this say more enjoiable for your eyes, and more content oriented. The advertising should not be intrusive and confusing like it is now.

Thanks to M.N a japanese reader of 43rumors we are quiet close to cover our initial hosting and domain registration costs. With the next money we will earn through adsense banners and donation we will try upgrade to a dedicated server which should allow a faster access to our content.

Thank you all for visiting us. We hope to become better and better in order to give you nice exciting rumors time!!!

New Pentax DSLR? Pentax K7D?

Sorry if we publish some news from other brands. But it seems something interesting is coming from Pentax. May you want to know more.

From what we know three Pentax cameras are expected for 2009. This could be the right time for the K20D successor. It will probably have video and we hope they will make it better than Nikon and Canon! Again we hope they will not follow the Canon (EOS 50D) Megapixel race.

P.S.: You have to wait for 2010 to have a mirrorless camera from Pentax :( lists the camera

Kawuuummmm!!! Panasonic to start development of new professional 3D production system!


Wow! Are they going the same way as Fuji? Oh YES! Ok the camera shown by Panasonic looks horrible 😉 but I admit it appeals me!

They are ready to start developing a professional 3D Full HD production system. It consists of a twin-lens P2 professional camera recorder and a 3D-compatible High Definition Plasma display. Panasonic will exhibit concept models of the 3D system at its booth (Central Hall #3712) at NAB 2009 to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada from April 20, 2009.
