    Ken Rockwell said.......D600/800/4 all the same inside....

    yep, Ken has said this and you better believe it......


    .......`Holy cow, I just realized Nikon's great deception of 2012: the D600, D800, D800E and D4 all have the same insides! They are all the same cameras designed and produced at the same time with the same insides, differing only in exterior casing and when Nikon chose to announce them. Nikon got cheap and really only developed one set of guts that's used for all three cameras, and then announced them at different times to try to hide it.` etc...

    Graeme, may I politely suggest that you would be viewing more credible and worthwhile content online if you were to watch 1970s B grade porn movies rather than "that guy".

    Hmm How Strange, I did have a read of this and I have some real concerns If you really want to you can say that every camera inside is the same, after all it is a light tight box. Of course the sensors, computational arrays, electronic circuitry, features and specifications are all different. This seemed more of a rant than anything else. I would read into this two things. The first is that Ken is having a falling out with Nikon, I'm not surprised, with the advent of the internet there are many great web sites related to photography, AP is one of them, Photo Argus, heaps of others. I also think that both Nikon and Canon to some extent are being pushed by Sony so there will be less and less freebies. I am guessing that the income Ken was making from his web site is in decline and the realization that he no longer has the clout he once had is moving him to make some brash and outlandish statements. The truth is both Nikon and Canon are producing digital cameras and lenses which are extremely good and aimed at the mass market. Sony, Olympus, Pentax also have great cameras in this segment. All of the camera manufacturers will continue to develop new features and improve image quality else they simply fold. This is not the first time Ken has taken a swipe at Nikon though, unless he also starts re-inventing his web pages he too will fall by the way side. I hope it does not happen soon, I think of Ken as the Ken Done of photography with his love of vibrant colours, but I do acknowledge that he too needs to pass the baton on to others.

    Kind Regards
    Livio

    LOL! he's a genius.

    Took all his massive powers of deductive reasoning to realize that the D800 and D800E have the same insides!
    He's probably exhausted himself now and may never fully recover from this recent monumental effort, so we may never ever hear from him again anyhow.


    D800 ... D800E .. same insides ...... who would have guessed that!
    Could have something to do with Nikon's recent acquiescence to Microsoft for various IP infringements tho

    I myself was almost completely convinced that the D800E was based more upon the insides of a D80(with one or two mild updates of course) and that the D800 was a Coolpix S800c with a flare kit and a bigger hole for inserting larger memory cards. D4 is a pimped out D40, and D600 is partly Canon 6D and partly PentaxK100D ... 6x100=600 Of course the inverse naming convention with the use of a D prefix as opposed to it used as a suffix, is simply to divert would be Sherlock Einsteinian geniuses off the real scent, wouldn't it.

    {Sigma}; ->10-20/4-5.6 : 50/1.4 : 12-24/4.5-5.6II : 150-600mm|S
    {Tamron}; -> 17-50/2.8 : 28-75/2.8 : 70-200/2.8 : 300/2.8 SP MF : 24-70/2.8VC

    Nah, he is just cheesed off cos Nikon never returned his email where he suggested to them that they should add another picture control parameter in the menus called KR and consisting of 2 more graduations of saturation and contrast.

    Sage advice Kevin.

    The only reason I know that he exists is that people keep bringing his name up on this forum, haven't read a word of his for quite a few years ------

    KR is worse than useless because he misleads the ignorant!! Quoting his own website...
    http://www.kenrockwell.com/about.htm
    This website is my way of giving back to our community. 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."
    Thus we MUST discount EVERYTHING KR says. Too many noobs (and even experienced people) think KR might actually know something, he does not!!!

    We don't parody KR for nothing http://www.ausphotography.net.au/for...l=1#post509888

    KR is a firm believer in the adage that there is no such thing as bad publicity.

    ... and that (bad)publicity leads to more hits on his site .. again.

    KR is one of the most amusing comedians .... with a specialist bent towards photography.

    Most of his ads are affiliate ones. Anyone can sign up for an affiliate advertising campaign and then pick and choose the advertisers they want on their site. I use www.clixgalore.com.au for a lot of the AP ads.

    If you hover your mouse over the advertisers on his ads page : http://www.kenrockwell.com/links.htm#stores you will see they are not just links to the site, but contain extra code so that if someone clicks one of them, and buys, he gets commission.

    Wow Nikon......trying to pull the wool over Kens eyes like that, you can't fool him.

    Imagine what happens when Ken finds out about Harley Davidson and how they have been conning us for over 100 years !
