UPDATED: New 43rumors theme online (lots of bug to fix)


Sorry for inconvenience. We need to fix a lot of things on our new theme. After that we will release a detailled description of the new features. All the process will take few hours.

UPDATE: I am sooooo tired. We were three guys working to make the new installation. You don’t know it….but this is our third attempt to install the new system (three nights!). Now we are here with tons of bug we need to fix. It’s 2.19am and I am falling asleep like a completely drunk teenager. Sorry if I didn’t manage to fix everything, but I need to rest and tomorrow I will finish the job and explain you the new website.


P.S.: This is not just a new design, 43rumors now runs on a completely new software. 43rumors will become a mini-facebook were each other can share infos and pictures, and make friends.

(FT5) Panasonic GH1 and L10 officially out of stock on Panasonic Japan

Via (click here to read the post) we learned that Panasonic Japan officially has the Panasonic L10 and the Panasonic GH1 out of stock!

Editor’s note: We don’t expect the GF1 to be discontinued even we “suspect” a new GF camera will be announced.

(FT3) Two new MicroFourThirds zoom lenses to be announced along the new Panasonic AG-AF100?

One of our readers that works for a big online-store told us that he has been trained to use the new Panasonic AG-AF100. He don’t know when exactly the new camera will be launched (but he is sure it will be soon). He also saw at least two new Panasonic MicroFourThirds zooms that are optimized for video (silent autofocus and smooth manual zoom and focusing). Those new lenses would also be perfect for the older Panasonic GH1 and the new Panasonic GH2 ;)

Reminder: The Panasonic 14-140mm lens is the only Panasonic lens optimized for video. Olympus has two MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) lenses the Olympus 9-18mm and the Olympus 14-150mm lenses but those are without IS and Panasonic camera don’t have in-body stabilization.

(FT2) New mirrorless camera spotted into the wild. A Samsung camera or is it a Panasonic?

An SLRclub forum user spotted that camera. He believes that this is the new Samsung NX100 but he doesn’t exclude that this could be also a different camera from a different brand.
There is not much we can see from that picture :(

UPDATE: I also thought this could be the white Panasonic GF1 but that image doesn’t exatcly match the GF1. For example you miss teh
