    I dont know if this was posted before but as a film photographer myself i know its very hard to find a magazine which is its dedicated only to film photography today. Some time ago a friend of mine sent me a link to this magazine called le negatif.

    Their link is: www.lenegatif.com
    They have just printed a book.
    I would appreciate if you would let me know if there are any other magazines which feature film photography.

    I think the trouble is that magazines make a significant amount of their income from advertisers - and so they pretty much dictate the idea that photography is all about buying the latest digital camera...

    I live in the UK and know of very few film only magazines, but one which at least includes film is 'Black and White Photography'. I don't know if this is marketed outside of the UK, but it is presumably available mail-order.

    http://www.thegmcgroup.com/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=698


    The UK companies Silverprint, AG+ photographic and several other film and darkroom suppliers advertise in it, as well as smaller companies advertising film processing services and second hand film cameras.

    It tries to strike a balance between film and digital. Personally I think the idea is flawed because I suspect very few photographers use both film and digital for either their professional work or for their hobby. I bet most of us film enthusiasts have a digital camera - but use it for different stuff. Photoing the kids birthday part, snapping things to put on eBay etc. I can't imagine many photographers using film and digital cameras side by side to take black and white pictures, so up to half the magazine is of little interest...

    I wish they'd take the plunge and go all film, but at least some months there can be quite a lot of coverage of film and many articles are not related to the capture device at all.

    There is a sister magazine 'outdoor photography' with the same inclusive film and digital idea, but I'm not familiar with it.

    Hello Steven thats why i found le negatif interesting because they feature only film photography and there isnt adversting at all. I totally agree with what you said. You should check out this magazine because i think you will like it.

    Looks really good. The book is a good price too (£11) for 70 pages. We had a recent thread here about an APUG photo book but I don't know what happened to it. Did it fizzle out?
