Send your rumors to sonyalpharumors :)

Share

Some people asks me how I do get rumors. There are two ways:
1) contact me at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com
2) or use the contact form on the right sidebar.

I keep my sources anonymous. If you want to feel safe just contact me using a fake gmail account. This helps me to create a constant communication with you. You don’t need to give me your name… I will not ask who you are :)

If you use the contact form on the sidebar you can avoid to give me your real name and email but please add some kind of signature. That will help me to classify sources and recognize the reliable sources.

That said I have been working with the 43rumors teams for months. So I am not a newbie with rumors. I know SonyAlphaRumors needs more time to become very reliable and only your help will make that possible.

I want to add one more note: We received some false rumors from sources which gave us correct rumors during the past months. There are some reasons why that happens:
1) A company can spread out incorrect information.
2) Some information I do receive are not detailled and leads to misinterpretation.

During the last weeks I had an increase of new sources and some of them are very good. So expect me to post some good rumor soon.
Cheers

P:S: Anonimon+ …hope I answered you :)

Conflicting reports about the new Alphas. Will they have video or not?

Share

Sorry guys I have to make a step back. After posting the latest rumor about the upcoming entry level Alphas I received some conflicting reports. It seems that there have been some doubts with the new Alphas having videorecording or not.

Let’s start with the key-points where everyone of my sources do agree:
All of them do confirm that new announcement about still cameras will be made at NAB (April 10-14). All of them confirm that we are talking about APS-C cameras. And all do confirm that there will be no A7xx.

But I have to “suspend” the rumor which told you that they will not have video. I ask you more time to get some more reliable information about that.

UPDATE: Mirrorless cameras will come in May. They will not be launched on NAB!
