Ok, so I admit I was looking an KR's page. Sometimes there's entertaining stuff to be found and this time was no exception. Have a look at a review someone wrote for the Nikon F6. Probably a joke.

LOL, funny review. Gotta be a joke, like the wolf t-shirt that Amazon had.

And shame on you for giving KR more revenue! He might be a genius who intentionally acts likes a douche just to garner attention. Maybe we've all been Punk'd.

That's what adblock is for...

I'd be curious to know how much he gets in PP donations. I'm sure there are those who think he is god so they click his ads and affiliate links, then send him money via PP.

I think his attitude just doesn't click (read: not what people want to hear) with a lot of other photographers. His opinions are quite humorous at times, and while he may be a tad condescending, he's a little more "real-world" than lots of compulsive gear buyers/owners care for.

I would never donate money to him, though, as opinions don't require/necessitate charity as far as I'm concerned (save for those in literary works, which are more than well-deserved).

Also, my 50D shipped this morning. It'll be on my doorstep tomorrow -- damn shame that this rain is going to let up only for snow to come through. Between that and working 12 hours a day, I doubt I'll have much energy/desire to shoot outdoors tomorrow night.

Nice, a package deal! Even if it's more expensive to buy them separately, I could never drop $6700 at once. I'd still by the lenses separately (if Canon were doing something similar that is).

I don't think it's so much his condescending attitude, but some of the things he says are so utterly ludicrous and in complete defiance of establish photographic principles and techniques, and not in a thoughtful or ingenius way. His biggest offense is intentionally instigating the photographic community with outright stupid suggestions for technique. For example, one time he said that he never used tripods ever, but instead used burst mode and afterward picked whichever shot looked sharp (if any). Plus some of his own shots are God awful nightmares of over saturation and poor technique.

More strange Rockwell quotes here:
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/...9&postcount=32

In his own defense, however, he does have some informative bits on his site and some of his shots are actually decent, so he's great for beginners (mostly), but again many of his concepts are, from an objective standpoint, completely erroneous. These bizarre comments he makes are what seem to stick in everyone's craw. Over at POTN he's the butt of every joke, often ad nauseam.

I think the thing that irks me the most about him are pictures of him. He's such a weird looking dude. I think nuclearjock will agree with me on this one.

As I've said in the past, I think Ken is reasonably useful for the more objective parts of gear reviews. For his techniques and the subjective parts of his reviews, I take everything with a large grain of salt.

Meh. To me, he's just another weird bag of skin behind a viewfinder. I don't agree or disagree with much of what he says/claims, but he's at least an interesting read here and there.


edit: Snowing. Hard. Pretty sure FedEX will delay my 50D "due to conditions". Even having the big corporate preferred account won't help much this time. Rats.

That sucks. You could always preempt them and have them hold it for pickup. UPS delivers to my house at such inane times that I'm never home to receive it, so I end up having them hole for pick up half the time.
