New D4s

Posted in Uncategorized on February 7, 2014 by thefakekenrockwell

What a waste of money this junk thing will be – massive, heavy and cost as much as a small car.

I’m buying another d800.

The New D800 and D4 price hike (only for the UK)

Posted in Uncategorized on March 24, 2012 by thefakekenrockwell

I was just speaking to one of my buddys in the UK and he tells me that the D800 and D4 are back-ordered so much in the UK that they are gonna get some more dosh to pay for The Nikon UK summer bbq and raise the price on the D800 by £200 and £500 on the D4. Luckily they said they can just plame it on a system glitch… hahaha those silly limeys!

Another guy told me the Canon 5D3 has banding too.. do they not know thats a canon feature?

On top of the small fortune for the wireless features of the new 600EX.. I don’t think canon have heard that yonguno sell a whole wireless trigger and receiver for about $60.. hahahaah.

 

Anyway i’m off to shoot some film and get some great shots on my cheap D800 and kit lens.. gonna be awesome!

 

My take on the new nikon d5000

Posted in Uncategorized on April 15, 2009 by thefakekenrockwell

What are nikon thinking? an articulated screen – that’s going to break in 2 minutes.
And still 720p video? even canons cheap offering has 1080p video. Come on Nikon what are you thinking?
Still no proper Auto focus with video mode which makes it next to useless for any decent video and hence just a gimmick to try and get people to buy on headline items.
And worse of all – no AF on old lenses – only get that with AF-S lenses.
I think we should go back to shooting film, you knew where you were then.

I’m going back to working out why my website’s broken…. anyone any good with steam and valves?

Updating my main website

Now some of you may be having problem with my website right now – this is due to me moving to a better hosting provider who uses film and not the fancy digital.

tons of new nikon dSLRs coming soon

Posted in Uncategorized on March 30, 2009 by thefakekenrockwell

There are lots of new nikon dSLRs coming soon, including a d300 replacement with the all important HD video mode – so you can try to hold the thing still and see all the pores and hairs on everything you film. Real pro’s would of course use a full 35mm film movie camera together with a leica lens.

of course i plan on buying it so i can shoot my family movies on it. but don’t you buy it or you’ll ruin it for me.

Oh – and i’m sorry i didn’t mention the new canon 500d – i was out shooting film like a pro instead of reading about the latest camera release.

PS I’m still working on that ebay article i spoke about last year – but – don’t email me about it or it will take me even longer.

Ripped off again

I ordered some special gold lens caps – on ebay for 30 cents, and when they arrived turns out they were fools gold – i can’t believe it.

Who do they think i am? I’m the fake ken rockwell!

I’m going to go and get my leica and shoot some rolls of film – almost as good as my d40…..

D40 and D3x

Posted in Uncategorized on February 16, 2009 by thefakekenrockwell

I know i said not to buy a d3x and i know i then went and bought one so you guys didn’t have to.

and i know i keep saying how great a d40 is because of it’s pro level 1/500 sync speed.

and i know there is still no sign of my ebay article, but, hey you get what you pay for.

i’m going to buy the new 35/1.8 DX lens and the new d400 just so you guys don’t have to, man i’d good.
