(April Fool’s) Mike Eckman and Ken Rockwell Joining Forces

Boy, am I excited about this!  For the past several months, I have been in the works negotiating with my good friend and fellow blogger, Ken Rockwell about a partnership between our two sites.  I have been on the edge of my seat wanting to make this announcement, but I had to make sure the ink dried before I could make it public…

The world’s #1 photography blogger seen through the world’s #1 camera.

For the past 7+ years, mikeeckman.com has brought to you the best in film camera reviews, articles, and other related information.  The site has grown to leaps and bounds beyond where it was when I first started.  Although I have worked on this site primarily by myself, I could not have gotten to where I am without help and support from readers.

Thinking about what the next step should be for this site, I decided to partner with Ken Rockwell, whose site, kenrockwell.com has been bringing to you the best reviews of camera equipment (film and digital) since 1999.  Ken’s site is the most respected and widely cited sources of camera news and reviews anywhere in the world.  His detailed and honest reviews help cut through the crud of other bloggers.  With a huge number of posts such as his catchy F.A.R.T. First for Fantastic Fotos, How to Win at eBay, and Why You Need an Apple Watch, Ken is always on the cutting edge of the camera and photography industries.

If you’re wondering what this means for mikeeckman.com, don’t worry.  With the upcoming merger which should begin shortly, Ken will continue to create award winning digital and general photographic content.  Reviews of the latest tech will continue as they have, but for me, I will continue handling the film side of the business.  Ken is an avid film photographer too, just look at that wonderful self portrait he took of himself with a wonderful Minolta SR-1 when he was only 12 years old!

I will have his full support to continue to bring to you film camera reviews and industry articles, but with the benefit of Ken’s knowledge and vast experience at blogging.

Both kenrockwell.com and mikeeckman.com will soon be branded together, and once that’s complete, we will have the world’s number 1, one stop shop, for all your digital AND film needs!

Help Me Help You

Ken and I support our growing families through this website, as crazy as it might seem.

The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get anything.  It costs you nothing, and is this site’s, and thus our family’s, biggest source of support. These places always have the best prices and service, which is why we’ve used them since before this website existed.  Ken and I recommend them all personally.

If you find this page as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help us to continue helping everyone.

If you’ve gotten your gear through one of our links or helped otherwise, you’re family.  It’s great people like you who allow us to keep adding to this site full-time.

Thanks,
Mike and Ken
