I can only laugh at these clowns. I sometimes out of desperation at not finding reading material pick up some garbage photo magazines. This last case is an issue of Popular Photo and Imaging - what always proves itself to be a walking advertisement trash rag, repleat with the "digital rules, film is dead" mantra. One of the typical articles there includes drivel titles such as, "If you don't own a digital SLR... you've run out of excuses." The next article concerns panoramas - and drones on three pages about how to stitch photos together on your computer. I found it amusing that the sample shots were made with a Mamiya 645 and a $20-30k dollar Phase One P25 back: typical gear for the readership of Popular Photo! Of course not one single mention is made of the multitude of cameras that can shoot panoramas straight onto film... So after suffering through this biased selection of topics, one arrives at the two feature articles that actully talk about photography. The first is Playboy photographer Arny Freytag talking about his career shooting centerfolds of Playboy bunnies. Here, in a little corner, one discovers that he shoots centerfolds with... a Canon 1Ds MkII? Try again. A Leaf Aptus digital back? Nope. A Toyo 8x10 or a Fuji GX680 onto Kodak slide films! The supporting photos are sometimes shot on a little Canon EOS-1N... again on the same films. Interesting... The next article, on how to get your travel shots out of the tourist trap, follows on the footsteps of pro travel photographer Blaine Harrington... who showcases his images from around the world, using... a Nikon F4 and Velvia or an Xpan. So, if I understand correctly... Pop Photo says if you're not using digital, you are less than a dungbeetle in the Karmic chain... yet all the photos they show amazingly use film. Hmmm... What a waste of paper and my $4.50.
