Exactly. I'm tired of the non-rumor rumors designed only to keep people commenting on the same-old same-old. Please Craig, do some digging and get us something we can sink our teeth into.
Or just silence. Deals of the Day and Industry News are fine for front page as well imo. The industry simply can't have earth shattering headlines everyday, any maroon knows that.

Tough game to play - I would bet the site needs regularity to generate sufficient revenue, but trying to increase the number of rumours may be tough without decreasing the standard of trust. I'm going to bet he doesn't bother with rumours that are less trustworthy - I'd rather he post other stuff rather than tempt him to pick stuff up off the cutting room floor.

I’d be willing to patreon a reasonable stipend to get the BS free version of the website.

say 50 bucks a year?

Craig - I presume that’s more per person PA than ad $$$? I know only a small percentage would use it but I’m surely not the only one.

Ye
Canon design Lead: Yeah, let’s distinguish ourselves by releasing the ugliest looking pro dslr camera body ever and make a splash of a sales marketing a new design paradigm. Oh, wait... a second... I am fired? Nooooo...
What makes it ugly?
I have a Nikon F Photomic that is silver and black, not a peep on how ugly or non-professional it looked.

P.S. the contact who sent this in doesn't seem to be hiding her identity and seems to suggest it is a 1DXII. It's on her instagram and even references this article:
Damnit.. Craig and I both got bamboozled by this.

Modified the post.

Just to comment on some above posts. CR Guy is away on vacation with his misses. So I'm helping out here at the same time as doing CN. So we're both looking at tidbits and deciding on whether or not it is a valid rumor / tidbit of information. Craig does get a lot in, and at times, he simply can't publish the information at well, or there is a lot of sifting through to figure out fact from BS. It sounds like it would be easy.. but there are times you get two sources saying two different things, making even more difficult to choose which one may be the reality.

In this case, Craig passed it over to me, and I should have done a bit more looking into it. Apologies to the community.

It seems like you guys get more right than you get wrong, frankly. I wouldn't worry too much about it - it is a rumours site after all. I still appreciate everything you guys do!

Gives us something to talk about waste time, while waiting. We all respect what you and Craig do. Just impatient for real news. I expect that after the first of the year, you will start getting more reliable rumors.
