Christmas Over – new articles due soon…

Well it’s nearly the new year.

Look forward to my articles coming up, to include:

  • how to make toast (a follow up for the popular boiling an egg article)
  • how to make enough money to buy any camera you want
  • how to make sure every lens is fantastic no matter what.
  • how cameras with more megapixels will NEVER beat film.
  • Stay tuned.

    My Canon 5d mark 2 is making hundreds of photos, i’m sure glad i bought mine now and got the banding and black dots. Canon’s going down faster than the price of the d3x at the moment, but, still everything is great, my good buddy fake chuck westfal said so whilst i was talking to him on his phone – he called me up and told me his phone is broken now though, so don’t try and call him about your 5d mark 2 problems – i’m sure canon will sort it just like they did the 1d mark 3 AF problems though.

    My D3X is due anyday now – and i’m sure it will be worth it (not in money as it’s now worth about $7000 – the folks at a internet forum site think it should be less) – but that early adopter amount will let me sort out all the glitches so you don’t have to. God I’m good!

    Happy Holidays and get ready for the new year in style here at thefakekenrockwell.com!

    PS Don’t forget to donate lots of money to me and buy stuff using my links!

Nikons f*cked!

I can’t believe it! Shortly after nikon announce their d3x flagship camera it turns out that like the cheapo d300 it is crippled if you want to get 14-bit NEF files.

Like the d300 you lose the headline frame rate of 5 fps (7 fps in DX mode) and drop to some unknown crawl to get the 14-bit mode – this means that even the 5d mark 2 will outshoot it in continous shooting. This pretty much confirms it uses the 12-bit sony sensor – otherwise it would be designed to shoot 14-bit from the get go – this is something my canons do without any fuss at all. Whenever my 5d2 turns up i’ll be sure to test it out against the d3x (i’m only getting this to test it for you folks obviously my loyal readers)

and still no buffer numbers – i hope it’s not going to be nobbled like the d3 was and Nikon make people pay a few hundred pounds to get the memory upgraded – all this in a camera aimed at PJs with a minuscule raw buffer – pathetic if you ask me. I wonder if d3x will be similarly configured when launched.

And what happened to the sensor cleaner? Nikon did is with their d700! Canon did it with the 5d2 and 1ds3 both full frame (and 1ds3 is 100%) – hell even olympus can do it! Man – Nikon is a laughing stock right now! So i still have to break out the swabs for my £5.5k camera! hope i don’t scratch the sensor!
