    I looked at the latest issue of Outdoor Phototgaphy, briefly, specifically to see if there were tech details accompaning the photographs. I am not certain there were none at all, but I didn't find any. Many of the 'graphs therein are probably still large format, film images (as are 9 of the 12 images on their 2005 calendar) but the bastards chose not to acknowledge that fact because it would contradict the necessity of buying the latest and greatest new digital tool for outdoor photography that the editor's are shills for. Sad...

    I think what angered me the most, is they write an article about buying cameras and don't even mention film cameras. I wrote the editor a couple of times asking when they are going to review the F6, but no response; which doesn't surprise me. If you look closely at the magazine, you can see that the editor, Rob Sheppard, also is the editor of PC Photo, and has written a book about Epson Ink Jet printers. So, it isn't surprising the major bias of the magazine; it just angers me that they refuse to serve all their readers.

    If anyone else wants to write: editors@outdoorphotographer.com. Perhaps, if enough people write they may get the hint.

    I made the mistake of glancing at the cover of Practical Photography ("Film and Digital Photography") today... Three of the cover articles were a review of new digicams, PhotoShop techniques and "Reasons to Go Digital". I don't recall seeing anything about film (other than the above-mentioned claim) on the cover. I now know better than to look inside...

    There's nothing like an unbiased magazine that's honest about its intentions, is there?

    I believe I may have inadvertantly placed a couple of copies of B&WP UK in front of that stack. (Oops, butterfingers!)

    I inadvertantly placed Maxim in front of the "Pop, OUtdoor, and whatever Photography" magazine over at Borders Books.

I always consider it to be a treat to find the UK version.

    Yep, I got it wrong and refer to the UK mag. Still reckon (like catering companies) the decline sets in after the first year and there is no recovering!

    I will not be renewing my subscription to Outdoor Photographer. I have subscribed for many years, but I so dislike the direction the magazine has taken in the past 2 years. Every issue has meaningless fluff pieces trying to sell us stuff--I have seen a few articles in recent memory about the latest in tripods. There is the occasional good story involving some type of environmental journalism, but we can find those types of pieces in National Geographic. With Outdoor Photographer increasingly selling digital products and process, I find it ironic that most of the showcase photos near the front of the magazine are typically medium or large format film photos. The magazine does still have some great columnists, but the remainder of the editorial content is increasingly worthless.
