Lollercakes, I bet that in-camera lens correction helped that shot of the little girl.

Saturation +4

Zooming in on that picture shows not bad quality, not that sharp though. I wonder how much pp he did on it?

Ken Rockwell doesn't do post processing. He gets it right in the camera, or so he claims.

KR in his D800 Review:

"The D800 is the best DSLR ever made by anyone at any price. I've got a D800 already, and have a D800E on order. There is no comparison."

There you have it.  We can all pack up and go home now.

Quote from: Ken "I'm awesome" Rockwell
After shooting another day with my 5D Mark III, I am so digging it. Its magic in-camera lens correction is letting me shoot fly-weight plastic Canon lenses, like my weightless and ergonomically superior 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5, getting great results, and lightening my load, all at the same time.

You know, right before the release of the 5D mkIII I said to myself, "I really hope Ken tests and reviews this $3500 camera with sh*tty lenses".

I really hope he tests the 1Dx with the ef 75-300.
i have a 28-90 I can lend him if he cant afford one for the review

The funny thing about Ken's review of the 5DIII (or any camera) he tends to pick the oddest things as negatives - "No Flash! booo!" ... oh dear.

The grass is always greener on the other side, unless Chuck Norris Ken Rockwell been there with his D800. In that case the grass is most likely soaked in blood and tears.

Chuck Norris Ken Rockwell doesn't read books 5D3 manuals, he just stares them down until he gets the information he wants out of them.

The Manhattan Project was not intended to create nuclear weapons, it was meant to recreate the destructive power in a Chuck Norris Roundhouse Kick Ken Rockwell camera review. They didn't even come close.

and so on...

And here I was thinking it was greener because someone turned up the saturation. Silly me.

Just an update.  No response to my email, and no changes to his misinformed website.  If I ran a website that reviewed gear for a living and I got an email pointing out a bunch of clear and glaring mistakes on said website, I'm pretty sure I would be pretty quick to respond and update the site, although I'm not a technologically inept tool with a website designed in the late 90's.

Perhaps you should read Ken Rockwell's "manual":

http://www.kenrockwell.com/about.htm

Quote
It is a work of fiction, entirely the product of my own imagination. This website is my personal opinion. To use words of Ansel Adams on page 193 of his autobiography, this site is my "aggressive personal opinion," and not a "logical presentation of fact."

Quote
I have the energy and sense of humor of a three-year old, so remember, this is a personal website, and never presented as fact. I enjoy making things up for fun, as does The Onion, and I publish them here — even on this page.

Therefore, if you are reading his page and making the mistake of taking him seriously, then you're the one with the problem.

If you are looking for site with serious reviews, then look somewhere else.  End of discussion.

now, see, usually, a disclaimer like that should be upfront and seen, not hidden in the about page. If he can find place to make it so obvious that he needs help to feed his growing family, he can surely fit that in somewhere....

Awesome, I hope this thread lives forever...

Ken Rockwell lives forever - You really want to know what happened to the dinosaurs? One of them made fun of Ken Rockwell's fanny pack.

I picked up the nuance of the "defending my thesis" lyrics, nice.  Also WTF has Wyclef been up too, oh ya, running for president.
