    I read his guide for the d90 half way and I love it. I want a mobile version on my iPhone so I am about to buy it in the AppStore. Before I do does anyone recommend a better guide for the iPhone?

    Opening up a can of worms....

    ;P

    (I use Ken's iPhone app for the D5000, I personally find it useful as a menu reference etc.. That's about all I'll go into about Ken R.)

    He does have some good info, but he's more of a salesman that a professional in my opinion. I understand pushing a product you believe in, but most of his website comes off him trying to make a buck from the internet, not from photography.

    And his writing just oozes elitist douchebag. That's just my opinion though :)

    Ken knows everything about photography.... just ask him.

    I do not understand why you would need a mobile version of this "guide". All it does is tell you what settings he uses. You can set your camera up just like him in the comfort of your own home. The better solution would be to find out WHY he chooses the settings he does, and WHAT the other options do for your photography. With this information, you will not need a mobile guide, you will be able to use your own brain and adapt to any situation that may come while out shooting.

    A comprehensive reading of the user manual and a few solid hours of hands on trial and error will serve you much better in the long run.

    There you go. Trust us, don't waste your time. Pretty much 95% of photographer hate him, for a reason.
