Panasonic rumors…

Recently Olympus has held the rumor stage becuase Panasonic just launched the GH1 and will wait a few months to announce new stuff. We receive few rumors now and most of them are not serious (from unknown sources). We believe Panasonic will prepare a big show for this fall releasing new lenses and more importantly new digital cameras! We are vigorously working to collect rumors about this camera and we will share all our information as soon as we get it. The most interesting rumor is of course the compact micro four thirds camera.

And we are still waiting for the 20mm 1.7 lens :(

Excitement is in the air…

When we talk with our sources they seem to be sincerely excited over the upcoming Olympus cameras. Sometimes we have the feeling they know far more than they tell us. They really like what Olympus is preparing for us. This is not news, it is a feeling. And that matters!

May this be a good omen for us…

We believe you will LOVE the camera!

One camera SILVER! But will there be a BIG surprise?

Hmmmm! This rumor starts with a big ‘hmmmmm’! We are confident that the first micro four thirds camera from Olympus will be SILVER. However we found indications that the same camera may come in two different colours! Zone 10 predicted a silver-chrome-black camera for June and another model in black for December. However, this might NOT be exact.

Our sources have been telling us since months that the camera will be silver. But then last week one of them asked us: ” Do you like Leica?”. “Oh yes we love Leica; but those cameras are far too expensive for most of us!” He then continued, saying, “You will probably see a silver model and a different coloured model.” We at first thought he was talking about the second camera which could be coming in December. But now rumors are suggesting to us that there may be two different coloured cameras in June!

We are getting closer to the summer release and we are receiving more and more rumors. We know most of them could be “spam”, we have to learn to classify this “news”. So it is quite difficult to make exact predictions. Today we can be 90% sure that one camera will be SILVER and there is a 50% chance to see the same camera in a different look ;)

We promised you a half rumor because we have no idea if there will be really a second camera! Leica Leica Leica, hmmm, what do you think?

P.S.: Our server SUCKS! Sorry for every inconvenience. It isn’t our fault!

Look! The Pentax k7!

We found this picture of the Pentax K7.  It will probably have a 15MPX sensor, 100% viewfinder and an HD movie mode with contrast-detect AF. A completely new camera in all respects!

A full collage of leak images is available at flickr.

Olympus and Panasonic folks, I hope we can find similar images for OUR next cameras!

A new image is avaiable…

First Olympus E-620, Nikon D5000 and Canon 500D comparison

The very good spanish magazine quesabesde has published an interesting comparison between the three cameras. What’s so useful about their review is that they focus more on real photography than on benchmarks or studio tests.

The results? First place for the Nikon D5000 (“very fast autofocus, good body quality, dynamic range and video“) and  soon after it the Olympus E-620 (“one of the best Olympus cameras ever made and wonderful with the Zuiko 14-42mm. Only weak point is the HIGH ISO performance“. The Canon 500D has the “highest price, and a worse body“!

Why you don’t need a good camera to take wonderful pictures!

Why do you need the latest expensive camera? Why are you dreaming to have a fullframe sensor camera? Deep inside our hearts we knew it all the time… good photography doesn’t depend on the camera! You need a proof? Chase Jarvis show us photos taken with the iPhone! And these are incredible shots!

His conclusion… “The best camera is the camera that is always with you!

I’m ready to buy the Olympus RC. I’m not joking with you!
