    Denmark to small for B&W magazine(UK)??

    The December issue didn't arrive as scheduled and now we hit January 2008. I went to the local newsstand thinking I should enjoy the weekend reading two issues of the mag when the newsstand owner brought the bad news to me " the ditributer in UK found DK to to small a market so we wont recieve the mag anymore" :o
    Is this really true?
    So now what? I have to subscripe in order to get so is it worth it or should I subscripe to View Camera Magazine instead.
    kind regards

    If you like the magazine, it's probably cheaper for you to subscribe, so it's really up to you to decide whether the magazine is right for you. Personally, I found December's issue to be quite good.

    Soeren, it is disapointing to hear the DK market is considered too small for continued distribution of B&W Photography.

    If you like the mag. then subscription is the way to go. With regard to choosing between B&W and View Camera they are somewhat different. I used to subscribe to VC but had to save a few pounds here and there so I stuck with B&W. I like its more general articles, plus it's monthly which gives me my 'fix' more often. However if your interest is solely LF then I can understand your desire to go with VC mag.

    Regards,
    Trevor.

    I hope it isn't true.

    Norway is smaller (population-wise) than Denmark, so that would mean it drops off the shelf here too?

    I subscribe, so I haven't noticed if the current issue is available or not.
    (I subscribe to ViewCamera and LensWork too).

    I have just received issue 81, dated January 2008. Does that help?

    And, having read it, I see that the Christmas issue was number 79; now a dim memory here in Middle England.

    It's bad news Søren that your newsagent cannot get it any more.

    So, if Jan was 81, and Christmas was 79, then what happened to 80?

    Christmas issue was issue No. 80, December issue was issue No. 79. I know, it's confusing - we print 13 issues a year.
    Am disappointed at the distribution situation but not wholly surprised. We don't control distribution, but I wish we could. Increasingly these days people subscribe to specialist titles such as ours in order to guarantee delivery. A wholesaler will take a view on the local market and will decide for themselves if a specialist title is warranted in its portfolio to offer newsagents. If there's little or no demand then its replaced by something else more mainstream - sad state of affairs I know
