    Can a person buy a film photography magazine anymore or have they all gone digital as well?
    "Black & White" is the only one I can find now days.

    There is also a German magazine Photoklassik that started last year.

    Fuji publishes a quarterly magazine in Japanese on analogue photography.

    Every once in a while I still see photo technique on the rack, but even it is only partly about traditional photography. Here's what they say about themselves now:

    "photo technique is changing ever so slightly to again meet the needs of its readers. We’ve listened to your feedback. Going forward, you’ll start to see more technical articles that demonstrate how to use modern imaging tools. In the 21st Century, these tools might include pinhole to large format cameras with traditional film, digital capture HDR, and everything in-between. You’ll continue to see all forms of photography in the pages of photo technique. Today technology is blurred and creativity and curiosity take over to create meaningful photographs."

    No there aren't really not in the old sense, I stopped buying photographic magazines years ago, I buy photographic books instead, there's much more hard information in them.

    Ben, you evolved over time too. I don't assume you would learn much from those old issues either.

    A magazine in the concept of Photoklassik can offer morsels out of the whole range of analogue photography on a silver tablet so to say. It
    can bring up themes hidden in some rare books. It also can present news, as well from the technical as from the art side.

    In this the classic magazine concept has ist advantages.
    However,it has to face the internet as competitor. A competition non-existant in the days of those old magazines.

    But a magazine still is that silver tablet, whereas the internet rather is a jungle.

    "View Camera" is still with us, although it specializes in LF.

    Did View Camera switch to film only? I wish. I was a happy subscriber back in those days.

    To be fair, books are repeating issues too. But with magazines being the same title and form it is more obvious.

    View Camera and Lenswork are the two I still get. They are not strictly about the analogue process but they are about the image and I love reviewing those pictures. I could give a rats *** what they used to get there, I am interested in the ideas and inspiration. For the same reason the majority of books I buy are photo books; the pictures...but I was hooked on comic books as a kid so there is probably some of that going on as well. :smile:

    viewcamera .. sometimes they have postage issues, so if you subscribe and have late or skipped issues, call or email to get it straightened out ..

    i used to viewcamera ( 2+ years), but stopped for a variety of personal reasons ..

    I have only been subscribing to view camera for a few years but there have been no dropped issues. As for late, that is situation normal in this house. :smile:

    How about the paper version of "British Journal of Photography"? Any good?
    I can't find it here in the stores in The Netherlands to sample it before I take an subscription (if some would send me an old copy and I'll pay the shipping?).
    I tried the digital version on iPad but - again - I found I like a magazine printed on paper better to read.
    I have been a subscriber to Black & White Photography (an UK magazine) for many years but would like to try something else.
    Preferably about analogue and monochrome photography. I bought a copy of Leica Magazine this summer. A beautiful magazine but not my type.
