Steve is probably just trying to make a living...
In reply to Hentaiboy, Jan 29, 2013

Steve probably truly enjoys photography and is just attempting to make a living based on that enjoyment.  I can't blame him for that.

I've been running a site for a number of years and with only two exceptions it has all been based on cameras that I bought and actually used.  Over the last several years I have been asked by several companies to post camera ads on my site but I always refuse.  Having camera ads on my site would just be useless clutter and might lead visitors to my site to believe that I was somehow "connected" and liked the camera in the ads... and there are many I don't like.

Running a site is really not all that expensive if you find the right hosting company (about $300 a year) so I see no need to have ads cluttering up my site or making pleas for purchases to be made through links on my site.  Rockwell has been doing that forever and I see that Steve is now doing the same thing.  More power to them if they can make a living or a decent supplement to their income off of their websites.  I just don't wish to do that... besides, I'm not a camera reviewer.  I am a camera user.  Becoming an actual reviewer would ruin the hobby for me.

I've read some of the posts on Steve's site and found some of them to be a bit over the top but then he is infusing his personality into what he writes.. it's not a White Paper.

I may have left one comment on his site in the past.  I have found that I disagree with some of his findings and suggestions but see no point in posting about any disagreement.

I can understand those who become a bit agitated when their camera of choice might not receive the highest ratings or recommendation by Steve but then the same thing happens here all the time.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
