    Popular Photography : Inside Straight - Film Forever!

    Please see the following article published in the November issue of Popular Photography written by Mr. Herbert Keppler, titled "Film Forever!". The article describes in great detail the wide range of photographic products that Freestyle supplies to the vast traditional film and darkroom photographic community, which is very much alive and thriving.

    Does the man never age? Keppler looks just like he did when I read his column in _Modern Photography_ some 25 years ago.

    I've enjoyed Mr. Keppler's articles ever since I was in my teens. I'll be sure to pick up the November issue. I do still read it fairly regularly. Thanks for the note.

    Maybe he's been retouched in photoshop...

    Unfortunately, Keppler seems to be the only regular contributor to PopPhoto that believes in film.

    I am winding down a 3-year subscription I foolishly bought from that digi-rag.

    I had the "distinction" of being one of a group of subscribers who were "polled" about six months ago. All the questions were related to whether or not they needed to increase their digi-coverage even more!

    Keppler's like the proverbial "nice girl"; what's he doing hanging out in a rag like PopPhoto?

    I like it when the retailers tell a little about their products. Too often we only hear from the end user who may have a different point of view depending on how they used the product. I like the article for the shot in the arm and I applaud Freestyle for the information and support.

    It's also interesting that Keppler has changed the name of his column from "SLR" to "Inside Straight" so that he can write about more things than slr's. I mean, what's left to write about? More pixels? Yawn ...

    I, too am running on the fumes of a 3 yr subscription that won't be renewed. I got the November issue today, and I'll look through it and read Keppler's article and whatever else is of interest, and then it goes to the recycle pile.

    But, in all fairness: if PopPhoto was still writing the same type of articles it has always written about film photography, we'd all be complaining that we "had read all this before." Well, we would. :rolleyes:

    November's Popular Photography was suprisingly readable (contrary to the previous 20 or so month's editions). There was the freestyle article as well as an article about the psychological aspects of photography and photographers that was quite interesting.

    Of course there was the usual stuff that you see every month - like the 12-color printer for $1900US which requires $900US for a new set of ink cartridges (?!?!). I guess I just don't "get it".

    Just out of curiosity... I didn't see any Freestyle ads in Emulsion, why is that?

    smacks of an advatorial to me. I know in some sports mag a product can be "editors pic" by paying for it. If not, all the best to a lone voice in the digi wilderness.
