I think that would apply more to people who get so riled up about what he writes... he even says "Why should you care what I think?"nightpiper said:i would just tell him to get a life.
U know, I really think that both nightpiper and kiwi2 do have a sense of humor because their comments implicitly carry the meaning that Ken Rockwell is a big joker. Now that's amusing. :bsmilie:acroamatic said:"Don't read if you take this stuff seriously, consider your camera a physical extension of your body or lack a sense of humor" - Ken Rockwell
Indeed, I'll have to agree with you that some might not understand because Ken Rockwell's attempt to bring across some satirical humour wasn't done very nicely, imho.acroamatic said:Yah, I guess they had to say what they did implicitly because some might not understand that Ken Rockwell is explicity kidding...
Yes... you're observant - to be precise, he has four sources of passive income just on the 20D review page alone.mpenza said:But he's gaining by having people clicking his url which pops up not one but two advertisements.
Actually, if u have been looking through his articles and reviews, he has been pushing a D70 over the D2h for the same thing (Canon A series over dslrs as well), so he's pretty consistent. His reasoning is listed out in his articles (I agree with some of them actually), and since he's a pro and he finds that feature essential based on his experiences, he's right in a perverse sort of way (He has a big ego though). I think the whole thing to realize is that he states those are his personal opinions and he's free to say whatever he likes on his site. I happen to like his style of writing though and there are gems contained in some of the madness..... :bsmilie:Amfibius said:Ken Rockwell is a big Nikon cheerleader. He cannot do any more to damage his credibility than his previous over-the-top rantings have already done, so what does he have to lose? Just ruffle the feathers of people who make the mistake of taking him too seriously
It seems as if the only thing that seperates a "pro" from an "amateur" camera in Rockwell's eyes is the flash sync speed. 1/500 pro. 1/250 amateur. So I might point out that he forgot to list the Nikon F5 on his list of "amateur" cameras because of the 1/250 flash sync speed.
