About our rumors, about us…

Share

Like you I read the reaction in various forums when people talks about our rumors. I already had this experience when I started 43rumors one year ago. I understand when people doesn’t trust our rumors. And honestly I would be one of them if I would not be the SonyAlphaRumors owner :)

Honestly, we would not last few months if we would invent our rumors. Our goal is to provide you with rumors which will become true!
We collect rumors and news from everywhere (new and old sources and websites). We only started few months ago that’s why we need some time to understand which source is cheating us and which source really knows what’s going on with Sony. I expect some of our rumors to be unexact and in some cases wrong because in fact they are “rumors” and not official news. That’s why we always post rumors with a value:

SR1= very likely a fake
SR2= from new sources
SR3= from a new source I had the chance to talk with and which I am confident he could really know something
SR4= From a known source which has been right in the past. Usually SR4 rumors also have been confirmed by a second source
SR5= It’s done!

You should take in “serious” consideration the rumors with value SR4 or SR5.

I also ask you to not post our news in forum where it is not appropriate. Do it if it makes sense. And please underline the fact that this are rumors!

If you want to help us by sending news or rumors feel free to contact us at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com. We will keep you anonymus if you want. You can also use our form which doesn’t store you informations (for example it doesn’t store your IP address).

One more thing: I am continually improving the website and I will add a lot of new content. Just give me some time because I can only work on it on Weekends and Holidays :(

have a nice day!

Sonys future 32 Megapixel camera can’t compete against this thing… ;)

Share


We are all anxiously waiting for the new High-End with over 30 Megapixel Sony Alpha camera but it will in no way come close to the 570-Megapixel Intergalactic Camera shown here! The 74 CCD sensors monster has been built at Fermilab by an international team of particle physicists and astronomers. What’s the goal? They want to solve one of the great mysteries of the cosmos: What is dark energy?

One question….what kind of lens will they use?

Report your rumors/news! We tell you how you should do it!

Share

There are two ways to stay anonymous:
1) The safest way is to use contact form (there is one in the middle of the right sidebar). It doesn’t store your IP-address and you don’t need to give us your name or email adress.
2) Create a new gmail fake account and send us your news at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com!

Remember we mostly will post rumors/news that have been confirmed by other sources.

P.S.: During the last days I received some rumor from anonymous senders. Just wanted to say thank you! Hope you will write us again ;)
