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!



Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 Review



I personally love Panasonic compact cameras. I own the LX3, but the ZS3 would be my second choice! It has a longer zoom range than the LX3 and this alone could appeal to all the people who feel that the LX3’s range is too short.

Digitalcamera posted a review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3. The only thing I don’t like is that the camera is noisy at 200ISO :(

Hi all!

Today we finally covered our  200$ server and  initial domain costs. Many thanks to the 5 donators who helped us and to those who helped us  to deal with our banners, providing us with some modicum of a revenue! ;)

Should you stop donating? No! ;)

Here are the reasons:

1) We are trying to make the page faster and nicer. But we believe we have to upgrade our server to achieve faster loading times.

2) We are the only Olympus and Panasonic rumor website. Without us life would be a lot more boring!

3) We post for you daily, keeping you up to date. Would you like an example? 2 days ago dpreview and engadget wrote a post over the new Voigtländer adapter. Our readers know that  we posted this news 2 weeks ago!

4) We were the first to predict the Olympus E-450. And we are the first to give  you real Micro Four Thirds specs.

5) Really, we work 2-3 hours per day for you. Yes we do it for fun and we like it. But every penny makes it even more enjoyable:)

You can contribute by just “paying attention” to our adsense banners or by donating (via paypal)!

Thank you all!
