The topics and Tips of Ken Rockwell

I was recently reading some comments by Ken Rockwell and from what mentions on his posts, it is well known that the top cameras like Fuji are the ones he focuses on.

He did not see a reason why to follow camera X-Pro 1 after the X-E1 (in Japan
known as the Sexy One), so only if you are a fan and addicted to the optical viewfinder, since apparently the X-E1 is greater than the X-Pro 1 (we already begin
to hear rumors of the next generation X-Pro 2) as it has a smaller size and lower
weight, has a built-in flash and the cost is less than the X-Pro 1, apparently it
will go in 1000 USD, it is deeper and emphasizes that it is a real camera, not a
plastic, this camera is for photographers, even in some aspects superior to the
Leica M9.

>"]Ken Rockwell, a great analyst of photography and cameras, mentioned in an article
about black spots of Uranus, pointing out these points are invisible and adds that
it has hundreds of photos on illuminating and none of them (except for Uranus)
black spots are visible.

According to its criteria, the criticism on the image quality of the 5 d Mark II,
should focus on different levels of noise reduction applied in different areas of
the same image, which sometimes generates that image as a whole does not look
natural, but digital.

And another plus: You may have all the equipment you need, all you need to do is try to get the most of the profits. Having better tools will not make taking better pictures, since the team is not going to become a better photographer.

Photographers make photographs, not cameras. It's really sad to see that there are few who manage to understand this, and wasting their time blaming tools for poor results, instead of using that time to learn to observe and manipulate and better interpret light.

Another great article That Ken Rockwell wrote is The deception of Nikon according
to him. Last year he sparked a controversy around Nikon. In his statements he said that D600, D800 and D4 models actually share all their internal mechanisms, by modifying its external appearance to be able to zoom in on different sectors of the market.

Let your words, which are enlightening - and controversial-:Today, the trio of D600, D800 and D4 was obviously designed and manufactured at the same time, with the same guts, but were announced at different times to hide the fact that, simply, in the interior are the same camera.
