Mirrorlessrumors goal is to provide you with interesting mirrorless camera system news and rumors. We collect the informations directly from our readers/sources or indirectly via other websites.
Mirrorlessrumors isn’t owned by any company and it is community driven open platform.
I decided to start the website on early 2010 because there were no website wich reported rumors about all mirrorless cameras. I preferr to keep my person and private life anonymous.
In my „real life“ I work as photographer and documentarist.
The only rule you should follow is „respect“
Nobody is perfect neither am I. So if someone does a mistake or says something incorrect be respectful. If you don’t like something say it with respect. Do not use badwords and be as rational as possible when you are argumenting.
Important infos for our sources
- Only I do read the mirrorlessrumors mail. Nobody else has access on it
- I never publish the name of sources and I never publish a rumor if they don’t allow me to that
- I do not publish „gossips“.
- I always suggest you to use fake email adresses and fake names.
Important things you have to know
- This website works well because I enjoy it to work on it. To keep that enthusiasm I need to find the right balance between the my real work (and family) and the daily work on mirrorlessrumors. So do not expect me to answer all your mails. Sometimes news and rumors will be posted hours after you find them on other websites, but usually we are the first to publish rumors
- I am not a professionist blogger and I my english knowledge is average. My language is simple and I often make mistakes. I speak four languages but I had never english at school. I am working to improve my basic knowledge but it will take some time.
- We try to publish not more than 2-3 news per day. If you send us links or news or reviews you should expect it to be published few days after.
- We try to keep a neutral profile (We judge as less as possible)
Advertising on mirrorlessrumors
We have some basic costs for the server (180 Euro per month) and occasional costs on layout or server maintainance. I know this is expensive but this allows you to have a fast loading website and to avoid crashes. I also spent few hours per day to read news, patents, emails, to talk with our sources and write posts.
To cover this costs I have two main earnings
- Google adsense. Adense allows ot place a maximum of 6 advertising banners. Once some clicks on them we get a small commssion (something betwen 1 and 10 cent). On mirrorlessrumors I have choosen to keep a maximum of 3 google banners . I hope you will appreciate that decision.
- Affiliate linking. Basically all shop links you find on mirrorlessrumors are affiliated links. This means that once you click on them if you buy something we get a small commisiion for it. Important: You don’t pay any penny more!
