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?

Talking about present and future photographic stuff is funny but if we want to talk about serious photography you absolutely have to see this video on TED: http://www.ted.com/talks/taryn_simon_photographs_secret_sites.html. She talks about her latest book “An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar“. The video is 17minutes long and there is not a single boring minute. I have to say it has been very very very inspiring! To be honest I wont talk to long here. See it for yourself!!!

(UPDATED) For rich people only post!

You can get your Leica S2 at amazon for $22,995.00. And if you want a better with 3 inch LCD Sapphire LCD Cover Glass and Platinum Service Package it costs you $27,995.00 only!

I will stick with my good old 12 Megapixel :)

UPDATE: If you want to spend more money get this: Hasselblad H3D-39II, Medium Format Digital SLR Camera with 39mp Sensor & 3

and you can find a funny user review on this item!

I purchased this camera in lieu of paying rent on my apartment for 4 years, and believe me when I say it was worth it. I used the box that it came in as a hat and some other boxes for a home. It’s uncomfortable but the pictures I’ve taken of my new home are so sharp that you can see the fleas on the brick I use for a pillow. I can also take high detail pictures of my children (who I am no longer able to see due to court order resulting from gross negligence) from an acceptable distance. Highly recommended!”  LOL ;)
