    Favorite Publication

    Does anyone subscribe to "Silvershotz" magazine and can you tell me ...is this the same publication as "The Black & White Enthusiast"?

    If you had to choose just one of three publications, would you choose Silvershotz or B&W or Lenswork and why?

    Sorry bigdog, but I wouldn't choose any of them. My preference is for color landscape photography, B&W does absolutely nothing for me. At the moment, my favorite magazine is Outdoor Photography (published in the UK).

    Also, I don't subscribe to Silvershotz.

    Even though Lenswork is not 100% film, the actual quality of the magazine, especially the pains taken to reproduce the images is readily apparent. So long as film based imagery continues to be well represented, I would have to say Lenswork. I have an issue of Silvershotz and it is nice. You should just subscribe to them all.

    I subscribe to View Camera, Silvershotz, B&W (UK), B&W (US) and LensWork. I love them all, but as far as print quality goes, I would have to say LensWork wins by a landslide. The others are fine publications for various reasons. I like View Camera for the technical and historical articles pertaining to large format; Silvershotz for its pure creativity, and both B&W mags for images and ads. The articles are OK too. I dropped Aperture and Camera Arts because they do not suit my particular tastes.

    I subscribe to none of them. The prices these days are ridiculous.

    So I prefer to go to the local Borders and sit for an hour or two in the new "Seattle's Best" coffee shop and read the mags. Most of them are rubbish anyway.

    I subscribe to Silvershotz, LensWork & View Camera in printed publications as well as LargeFormat Journal ( a pdf pub). All are excellent publications with good image quality.

    I was quite surprised, I pick up a Shutterbug this month and there were actually two in depth reviews of a couple of great film cameras, The Voightlander Bessa R33A and the Zieiss Ikon Rangefinder 35, both pretty good reviews.

    Fairly decent reviews - particuarly as S'Bug is a fairly mainstream (eg, advertiser oriented shill for the digital marketers) publication. I have a the Bessa R3A and am rather pleased with it. On the general topic of publications, I've found the Canadian magazine "Photolife" to be fairly pro-film. Most of their better photos are, of course, film. Generally Photolife expends more ink on the subject than the equipment.

    Keep in mind, both articles were written by one of APUGs newest members, Roger Hicks. IMO, we are lucky to have someone of such caliber on this forum.
