43rumors and mirrorless


Dear readers,

Yesterday I asked you to give your opinion on the need to cover the rumors from more brands with mirrorless camera systems.

As you understood from my comments it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me to “expand” 43rumors coverage on other brands. I started 43rumors I wanted to have a place for FourThirds-MicroFourThirds only.

But I have been surprised to see how many people need a place for general mirrorless rumors and news. So my idea is to create a new website and comunity! The website should not only contain the unique rumors from our sources but also become a dynamic network with people sharing reviews, comparisons and tests.

What do you think?

Olympus E-PL1 tests here and there…

Let’s start the new week with the list of all new Olympus E-PL1 reviews:
1) The video above is from digitalrev. I like the fact that they made a “on street” review.
2) Kirk Tuck also tested the camera
3) Crunchgear posted their short review (probably a to short review to become interesting for you)
4) Unlike Cruchgear the hungarian website posted a very detailled review! It is definitely worthy to play around with their dynamic graphs :)
5) And finally the japanese website trendy.nikkei made a E-PL1 vs GF1 vs E-P1 comparison

If after reading all these reviews you are ready to buy your E-PL1 use one of our affiliate links :)

Olympus E-PL1 in Stock in: Amazon US / Adorama / BH / Amazon UK / Amazon Deutschland / Redcoon Deutschland / Amazon France / Redcoon Italia Pixmania Deutschland

Pixmania Italia / Pixmania France / Pixmania España / Pixmania UK / Pixmania Belgium / Pixmania Netherland

POLL: radical 43rumors change

Dear readers,

since 1 year we are writing rumors. We are now creating a complete redesign of our website and we want to ask you a very important question.

We are getting rumors from Panasonic and Olympus but also from other brands. So our question to you is: should we make a radical improvement. Should we become a website that talks about rumors of all mirrorless camera systems? We won’t cover classic DSLR rumors (there are already very good rumors websites). Our idea is to specialize in mirrorless camera system rumors and news.

Will you buy the new GF2?
