Google trends: Olympus and Panasonic


We have taken a look on google trends to see how many people is searching for Olympus and Panasonic products. The first graph below shows you the Panasonic GF1, Olympus and Nikon D5000 ranking:

Clearly the Nikon D500 has the edge over both Olympus and Panasonic models. Without any surprise the GF1 outperforms (in google trends) the E-P1. But you have to consider the GF1 has just been released.

We also compared three Olympus cameras and nobody will be surprised to see that the E-P1 is the clear winner.

Than we compared the brand names. Canon easily wins but we have to say that Canon produces and sells many kind of products. Panasonic doesn’t perform that well if yo consider that Nikon and Olympus have not such a big range of consumer products.

And finally the most interesting graph…43rumors is performing very well and we are close to canonrumors and nikonrumors. We have no idea why there is a gap in July and August but anyway we will catch them very soon or not? ;)

How would you improve 43rumors?

Our goals are:
– create new content (reviews, comparison, videos,…?)
– increase traffic volume
– increase the interests on four-thirds and microfourthirds products

Do you have some ideas?

43rumors poll: Do you want a 43rumors forum?

Dear readers. Many people is asking us why we do not have our own forum. We never thought we should make one because there are so many forums around.

But maybe it would be easier to you to discuss news and rumors if we have one. Let’s decide it now!
UPDATE: We would add many features like image upload and gallery.

Which feature would you most like to see in the next free update to Camera Kompare:

Nikon and Canon do NOT plan to release a m4/3 concurrent system?

Canonrumors has a rumor which is saying that Canon isn’t working on a APS-C compact AND interchangeable lens system. Also Nikonrumors is saying that Nikon will probably ONLY announce a Leica X1 clone.

Our sources do confirm both rumors. So nothing to worry for MicroFourThirds? Not yet but soon the battle will begin…

P.S.: Panasonic GF1 camera with 14-45mm Lens is in stock again at amazon US
