    Well at least the Fro got a wash. Apparently he washes it once a week, and uses a bag rain cover to keep it dry when showering!

    Not sure about KR, he's probably busy seeing how many pictures he can get on an SD card!:eek:

    Hurley took him up on the challenge already. I doubt Kelby or Arias will, but still wouldn't be terribly surprised if they did.

    But Rockwell…well, who cares?

    Sidenote: I struggle to watch Jared Polin these days. He's too aware of his 'celebrity' and really not a very good photographer. :(

    I concur, and I hate the tagline/site name

    I even feedbacked him that the reason I hardly watch his tutorials is his ear-puncturing tagline he loves using so much in that horrid horrid voice

    The Fro is primarily a businessman and then an entertainer/educator. He also takes photos ;)

    I don't care about anyone doing the challenge but Ken J-peg, but he won't :(

    I'm always having a shot at him on social media. :)

    Who just so happens to poorly critique aspiring photographers work like he knows something.

    What's with all the hate for Polin?

    One can always argue about art, but he graduated from the Antonelli Institute, he does deliver some nice professional work, he makes an entertaining and successfull show on youtube and the people he critiques are asking for it as far as I know.

    I just wish Steve would do some video stuff, since they are using three D610s to film the show and I just got myself a BM UltraStudio to record 4:2:2 from my D610. I am very interested in their setup.

    I don't hate him, I just think he's a douchebag. An entertaining enough douchebag, but a douchebag nonetheless.

    He's been working on a DSLR video for a while now. Should be on sale September.
    Personally I watch his weekly show as I find it mildly entertaining with some photography stuff thrown in.
    When doing his critiques, he often mentions it's his opinion, not right or wrong, just an opinion.
    At the end of the day, that's all any of us have got. An opinion.

    Matt Granger did it.
    Kai Wong from digitalrev did it and P. Bloom got the flu atm.

    I don't think Ken will. Kinda sad :(

    Perhaps KR donated quietly? Don't be so quick to pass judgement.

    Same, I also think Fro is a douche. Matt Granger is a great guy but somewhat awkward with so-so pictures.

    Neil Van Niekerk and Michael Zelbel on the other hand are not douchey and provide great tutorials and have amazing pictures.

    Ken Rockwell has some great articles and reviews you won't find someplace else.

    Just giving my 2 cents
