insufferable asshole, I’m honestly baffled as to why his channel is so popular. Any time I come into proximity with a person like him it’s a bad day. You ever have a coworker like this guy who thinks his opinions are all hidden truths and is pissed at everyone else who exists?

Hi ambush

Holy shit I watched his last video about the DSLR doom.

This guy has the nerves to say he doesn't respect any other Camera reviewers on YT because they are shills when he's probably the biggest one of them all.

The worst thing is that his favorite brand Fuji won't even acknowledge the man and provide him with a X-T4 sample. I find this hilarious.
>>
>>3690360
He's a prime example of the Dunning-Kruger effect. Fuji won't give him a camera because his photos suck.

He's actually an incredibly vengeful person. I know because I interact with him on SAR disqus.

If you ever get into a heated argument with him, and prove him wrong in the end, he just gets pissed and ignores you.
And then he blocks you if you ever replies to him again.

And then he publicly asked SAR admin to shadow ban me.
I just made a new account after that.

That would mean he actually has taken a single good image and he is far to bad of a photographer for that.
Remember he stole images and claimed he took them?
>>
>>3686435
20 minute long videos where he doesnt show any photos and when you look up his IG it’s worse than mediocre. He is a gearfag

I’ve watched a lot of his videos about lenses, only very recently did I see some of his pics.
Holy shit he’s amateur. Some of his settings were just WTF? 3200iso on a fucking sunny say lmao.

This is something all those camera review people seem to do. I have no idea how it's possible, whenever I'm shooting during the day at 200 ISO at normal aperture ranges my shutter speed is somewhere in the 1/500, yet this dude has 800 ISO - 1/100 SS
>>
>>3692418
Ken doesn't know what he's doing, but neither do you if you think everyone is always aiming for "lowest ISO"

There are a load of reasons someone might choose 800 iso 1/100 SS over 200 iso and 1/500

The ability to freeze movement works both ways. Sometimes you can freeze motion *too much* and sterilize the image. 1/100 is more exciting to look at in sports than 1/500 is.
iso 800 vs iso 200 is an undetetectable difference on most modern cameras, and 800 is actually peak dynamic range if you happen to be shooting jpegs

This is something with youtube retards, content makers and content consumers, they think they know more than they do because all their knowledge is rooted in third person experiences.

Just use your camera. Turn off the youtube. It's not that hard.

That's not the case, Fujifilm would never associate with a man who peddles conspiracy theories relating to 5G and magnetism on his channel.

>>
>>3692424
You absolutely should be going for the lowest ISO unless you have a reason not to.
Taking a posed pic of a stationary model in daylight essentially frees you from shutter speed decisions. The limits being the steadiness of your hand and limits of your flash sync or max shutter speed.
3200ISO, shutter at 1/900th, daylight and flash.
That’s just bad form.

Not necessarily. You may have lower DR at higher ISO, but the range of DR changes too. You have more dynamic range for highlights at high ISO, and more dynamic range for shadows at low ISO.
So there is sense for using higher ISO in bright light during the day.
Not that Ken would know because he's a fucking spastic.

>>

>>
>>3694030
Does .4 stops of DR only affecting the highlights and in a narrow window of iso range affect your photos at all? Do you even own a camera?
>>
>>3694053
Not him but in the image it’s 1.3 stops from ISO 320 - 800.
Makes me wonder how this differs between sensors, how it is affected by sensors with dual base iso. Also, why do video cameras like the black magic pocket have a native base ISO of 800?
>>
Ken is a pedophile, one of the worst photographers I’ve ever seen and has shit opinions about lenses.

He eats so much fucking cheese whizz you can hear it gurgling in his stomach into his esophagus from his microphone. He’s awful at everything he does and you should stop giving him attention like this because that’s the only reason he clings to his miserable existence.

>>3694194
I mean just look at him and tell me he isn’t one.
>>
>>3694196
That doesn't in and of itself prove that he is a paedophile. That just proves he's stupid and making an edgy boomer point.
Paedophiles probably watch him to find out which is the best camera to aim out of the window with a 300mm to take snapshots of the kiddies thanks to that little comment though.

He's very knowledgeable and knows tons of tricks, his problem is presentation, he has horrible social skills and doesn't know how to organize his thoughts and video formatting (presentation skills). His channel was just a way to cope for the death of his wife very shortly after his quick retirement and the subsequent mid-life crisis that did (he was a buddhist who read languages, cycled and ran as a hobby and who worked as a protog for himself and a couple of agencies to pay bills)
But the majority of what he says holds truth for someone who made himself in an environment around quick photo shoots and camera maintenance, but he lives in a constant paradigm of defending all that makes photography art (microtonality in lenses, flawless cameras in terms of functionality, signal-to-noise sensor performance) but he himself always did stone cold stock photography (sports, events, business portraits) and never the former.

Strange guy but i can trust what he says regarding lenses and technical quirks around gear. I don't know about magnetism and languages, and he rarely posts personal images. He strikes me as a very clinical and highly technical photographer (based on prints he flexed a couple of times) but who rarely dares to compose anything interesting, so basically what everyone here would like to be sans dead swedish wife. Certainly not a person for homo, sensible people.
>>
>>3694030
Isi has mentioned it in the past
>>
>>3691508
He's clearly just walking around, never stepping off the path, just panning each way looking at things and snapping pictures. No picture ever composed.
>>
>>3699209
i see you have bought into his bullshit. there's too much to address here, so i'll be brief and just say even what he says about technical quirks is generally completely breathtakingly wrong.

as for lenses, a few years ago when he "talked about and reviewed" vintage lenses was the same time he was selling them on ebay to turn a quick buck. moreover the lenses he claims to recommend are 20 years+ in age, long enough for the shit to be forgotten about, so there's nothing special about them. also note they're almost always native lenses. notice he has almost nothing to say about contemporary lenses: you won't find a single good thing said about canon/pentax/sony/sigma/etc lenses, except gagging on fujis cock and sleeping with his boomer nikon lenses.

he's a garbage person.
>>
>>3699252
>completely breathtakingly wrong.
Weaver stance shooting with a left-hand index finger closed posture is a very sturdy position he claimed once and that's true enough. IR light on hotbox for IR cameras sounds obvious but he seems to be the only one mentioning that.
>as for lenses
>20 years+ in age, long enough for the shit to be forgotten about, so there's nothing special about them.
That doesn't make sense other than saying he's repeating stuff people forgot about. In that case he does remind people of seemingly good stuff instead of pulling his pants and trying them for himself, but that doesn't make them "nothing worth noting"
>you won't find a single good thing said about canon/pentax/sony/sigma/etc lenses
He did use a couple of shit if YT recommendation section is reliable. I recall he praised Tamron's new 35mm and i recall also he said Canon FD stuff is usually great, which doesn't seem like a revelation but there's that. Old Pentax stuff appeared in some of those old vids and i suppose he doesn't say anything good about Sigma due to their build quality and "resolution in spite of microcontrast" oil he keeps feeding people.
Fat bastard doesn't own new Sony and Canon cameras, no wonder he doesn't touch them.
>his boomer nikon lenses.
lol go to sleep timmy, never said he was a good lad
