Message to sources and readers. Very hot rumor time coming!


First a message to my sources:

Thanks for all the rumors you send me almost daily. As usual please keep in mind that I will always try to double check the info. Don’t worry, I receive ALL your info :)
For people who never sent me rumors but want to do it in future. Please use the anonymous contact form on the right sidebar. It would be nice if you can send me some kind of fake name you can use in future too. It will be easier for me to recognize if you are already a trusted source that gave me correct rumors in the past. You can also create a fake gmail account if you want to know my feedback. Thanks!

Hot rumor time coming!

I am taking some time off because I need a lot of time to investigate about the future Panasonic and Olympus products. There will be two announcements in June, one from Panasonic and one from Olympus. And we can expect a lot of nice products! I postponed my vacation to France in July to have more time on 43rumors.

Hot rumor time coming….reloaded!

And you should follow too! Sony and Samsung will both announce new products in June and July! And some of the products they are going to announce are really intriguing. Like the Zeiss 24mm f/1.7 for NEX for example.

New server and your support.

There are still many issues on that website (like for example the impossibility to edit your own avatar). I now have an online ticket system where my designer can see the issues and work on them. SO feel free to suggest me your improvement ideas! One more thing: I will buy a $2000 server to move 43rumors and Mirrorlessrumors on a much faster platform. The website loading time should become 3x-4x time faster! And in times like this where there are many rumors and announcements it should avoid crashes too.
Thanks to tour support I am able to cover almost all costs of the new server + designer and technician work. I want to thank you for that! Amazing how we can make this website growth!

For those who don’t know how to support me here is how it works: I am not going to use 43rumors as a advertising banner wall. As you know I have only two banners on my website (where other photography websites do have much more of them as you know!). Instead, to support the costs of this website feel free to use our links if you plan to purchase in some of our linked affiliate stores. Once clicked on the link you can buy whatever products you want (Books, Cd’s, cameras or lenses….) and I will earn a small commission for it. You still pay the normal price for every product of course! But the online store will send me some penny for the linking. This is the best way to support 43rumors without to donate any single penny. Thanks!

So now back to rumors because after yesterdays GF rumor you can expect an explosive news coming even today ;)

UPDATE: Some readers asked me to add the donate button to support the server costs. So for that occasion only I am going to post one (Click on the button, you chose the amount you want to donate):


P.S.: This is the list of stores I am affiliated with (alphabetical order). It contains the links to the Panasonic GH2 (just an example). If you have some other store you want me to add let me know!

    You postponed your vocation? Please dude!

    You should really get another guy to work with :D

    • admin

      A friend of mine (a nice lady) is now learning a bit of wordpress. She will help me to work on 43rumors when I am busy at work or on vacation. If all works fine I will be finally free to take vacations whenever I want. The problem is that I cannot afford to pay someone to work on 43rumors. The Lady will do it in exchange for a fixed link to her website. That’s a great deal for me :)

  • That’s a bummer that in January when I bought my GH2 from Adorama, AFAIK I didn’t see a link from here. I spent “a lot” and you would have gotten more than a pretty penny. For you to postpone your relaxing adventure in France truly shows loyalty to M43 rumors. Kudos, and pour yourself a glass of Chateau Beaulieu Comtes de Tastes while looking for rumors. Cheers, my friend.

    • admin

      Where are you from? If you are form US you should see links to Adorama isnide the camera database!
      P.S.: Never heard that wine. But I will look for it :)

  • Belay

    Thanks for your work and your time. I am following 4/3 rumors for about one year now since I decided to buy a new camera with interchangeable lenses. From the list of rumor website that I have, I have to be honnest 4/3 rumors have the most reliable rumors and most update rumor flow.
    By the way you should think about implementing a “DONATE” bar. This kind of items work pretty well for torrent website, there is no reason why it should not work for yours.

    • admin

      I really feel uncomfortable to ask you for money. My language is terrible, I am not a good writer. I prefer you to not spend any penny for me :)

      • Belay

        You could, you could….You know a donate bar is not a big thing and many people have a paypal account…And as you know only people who want to support you will finally donate :).
        If you need some French translation support time to time, you can contact me.

        • admin

          Thanks for your offer! My girlfriend speeks french very well (she is from Belgium).
          Still not sure about the donate button… :)

          • admin

            I think your are going to LOVE the rumor I post today :)
            Will take a 15 min coffea break soon and try to write the article. See you!!!!!!!!!

            • I hope so, I took a day off today and I’m currently doing my French Taxes Caculation :) …. A good µ4/3 news will light my day up !

              • admin

                It depends on how much taxes you will have to pay :)

                • I hope they will leave me enough to buy my new camera…Otherwise I will move to Monaco :)

  • Beautemps

    Thank you for your engagement. You bring a lot of pleasure to the readers all over the world.
    Don’t mind for your holidays. Atlantik is even (a little bit) warmer in July.
    Moliets e.g. has a wonderful beach and natural reserve etc. Good for comprehensive testing of cameras. But be carefull of the very high waves, I allready downed a cam there.

    • admin

      Actually I am going in two places. Close to Valence first, and than to Sahorre.
      I will go to Spain or Greece for the sea. P.S.: I love big waves and I am not scared of it. I have no sense for risk :)

      • You do a great job at this site and I’ve said so at DPR if not here . . :)

        Just sent you a donation through Paypal and BTW I like big waves on the beach too!

  • DonTom

    Admin, thanks for making this site such a labour of love! I really look forward to the news of “my” camera system, and check it several times a day (more than I should).
    And now you have some amazing news coming? I’m hooked for the rest of the day….(Pretty please, the “rangefinder” m43 cam must be coming soon!)

    • admin

      You are pretty close with your hope ;)

  • Nik

    Hey admin, if you go to Greece and like big waves you should visit my island as it’s full of big waves in August/September! Thanks for all your hard work.

    • admin

      I LOVE Greece! Wher eis your Island? I have friends in Nafplio!

  • 43RC

    Maybe DPRvw should donate. They take your NEX-C3 Czech manual story, and now Samsung NX story.

    Thanks for all your hard work on this great site. Will donate soon.

    • admin

      The Samsung story credit goes to Photorumors. Anyway, they donpt need to donate, it would be fine if they would link to the correct source :)

  • Bluejake

    I am looking forward to this rumour today. Hopefully they will give us what we want. These camera manufacturers must get the disappointment at the GF2 and the buzz the x100 created. Surely it is worth making an enthusiast’s camera to help the M43 format develop as well as being able to charge a premium price.

  • Ron

    Thanks for all your work admin. I love reading 43rumors.

  • Arkersaint

    Congratulations for your job… and your iproving english level : I have been on your site for more than 1 yar and I definitely noticed it !

    My guess : Like other said, due to unknown but likely agreements, only Olympus would (and will evetually) bring us the slim camera with EVF a lot of us seem to want…

    With best regards

  • Duarte Bruno

    Cheers Admin.
    Have tried to re-apply for Pixmania Portugal? I could give you some income as I buy a lot from them…

    • admin

      No chance. They are the only Pixmania program refusing me. Will try to contact their manager. It doesn’t make sense at all!

      • Duarte Bruno

        What a bunch of morons… :(
        Do they even imagine the kind of business a site with this kind of traffic would bring them?

  • MrL

    have donated :)

    • admin

      I’ve noticed it! Thanks :)

    • MrL

      how much we have to donate to get our rangefinder camera?

      • Gianluca

        +100!!! ;)

  • GreyOwl

    Donation made while button still available! Hope that helps towards closing the gap.

  • Dear Admin,

    To what e-mail address do I have Pay Pal make my 43Rumors Donation?


    You can respond to my regular e-mail address if you like:

  • What a material of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable knowledge concerning unpredicted feelings.
