    I would like to see the darkroom brought back as well as the classic camera feature. I dislike the pop photo table style charts about features/pricing on the latest cameras (which never include film). And what happened to 'Five Things'? I know Ailsa has moved on to farer freelance pastures and I'm not singing 'Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?'. But a lot of fast changes were made that I don't prefer. I picked up my first issue to browse (not buy) in four months. I still miss the B&W Photography I fell in love with.
    Thank you.

    I'd like to read more about the photographer's philosophy and the philosophy of photography. Perhaps more focus on avant garde photographers/ experimental contemporary photographers.

    I would like news on new film and paper releases along with paper comparisons. Kentmere Wt against Ilford Wt eg. Interpretations of the same negative using different toners and developers.

    AS above plus: A slow film 'shootout', because no one else will do it, Adox CMS 20, gigabit, ATP 25, etc. Review of the Microtek F1 scanner. Classic cameras, reader darkrooms.

    I've been a regular reader of BW since November 2006. The only other photographic magazine I subscribe to is LensWork and I think that all in all they complement each other fairly well. However, just like Christopher Walrath (above) I really miss the "5 things I can't live without" feature.

    Other articles I'd love to read:
    - Build your own film-dryer
    - 101 ways to eliminate dust on your negatives
    - A Zone System primer (for those of us who until now simply used the built-in center-weighted meter)
    - 25 (as mentioned by kram, above), 100 and 400 iso film shootouts
    - Film & developer combo of the month
    - Reviews of various photographic holidays/workshops/courses

    Regards,
    Erik Ehrling (Sweden)

    That's been done, quite recently. In fact, due to a printing error, that article actually ran two months in a row.

    Les McLean gave a great suggestion for using two coat hangers as the top of a film dryer, with polythene sides and a wooden base. I slightly adapted the idea and am extremely happy with my new film dryer.

    It was actually that article that made me start thinking further. Maybe my idea is overly complicated, but I'm considering building something like a small size warderobe. You hang in the film strips vertically, after that you close the door and tilt it 45 degrees to avoid water running along the whole length of the film. (If it's a stable enough construction you could possibly add an air filtration system as well...)

    Another article I'd like to read:
    - Reportage from visits to film factories over the world

    Now you've got me thinking about how the water runs off the film. Surely the surface potential (sorry, I'm a physical chemist) is much less for the film running off the ends than off a face of the film. But you could still tilt the film sideways from the vertical so that the water runs off the side edges. This should make the drying much faster.
