So I read the UK mag at Borders but rarely buy it and usually buy B&W but do skip some issues.

    Isn't this why they go out of publication? I can't subscribe to View Camera because I am outside the US but have a standing order with Robert White in UK for every issue. Sometimes I get more out of it than others but if nobody buys it then I won't get anything from it. B&W mag (UK) is an excellent publication and in my opinion will stick around for quite a while. Ailsa ( the editor) is also an APUG'er and in my eyes is doing a sterling job.
    Its getting harder and harder to get good mags so I try and keep the existing ones alive

    I look forward to any quality addition to the Analogue fold and will also subscribe to the mag as well.

    Yes, it is a catch-22 for publishers. If I knew going in that I would be reimbursed or have my subscription transfered to another mag of my choice, (not Outdoor Photographer or Pop Photo etc) I would be more comfortable. When I mention View Camera and Lens Work it seems that they have had a pretty steady subscriber base for several years or growing as is the case with Lens Work. I think the APUG related publication if done well will be able to garner a similar following of dedicated subscribers. Another reason i have not ponied up for one of the other mags is that I would rather have the money go to the APUG effort.

    View Camera has never missed an issue in 15 years and CameraArts has not missed an issue in 6 years.

    We are going to be increasing our coverage of the traditional darkroom in both. Here is a question. Do you want separate darkroom articles or do you want supplements to the portfolios discussing the photographer's darkroom practices?

    Steve, can't speak for anyone other than myself, but I think a mixture of both would be great. Some discussion of the darkroom practices of a featured portfolio, then others discussing various darkroom features.

    Aggie, not much I can offer other than sign me up when the time comes. Would be happy to sign up now to help get a little $ to start. I have learned to be patient....

    I agree that it's best to play it by ear, as it were, with where to put the darkroom stuff. It would be interesting in a magazine like VC to see some darkroom info along with the other technical information for each portfolio, but I could see that co-existing with darkroom technique features or a regular darkroom section.

    Steve, a mix of both would be nice but maybe a supplement after a portfolio or article would be more practical.
    I'm sorry to hear about PhotoVision going under too, I guess that's why I've been missing the last issue. I guess that's the chance you take when subscribing to anything new. I figure with the free issue that Steve A. sent out before he left, I only got burned for 3 issues.
    As far as other magazines go, I have only good things to say about B&W Photography, VC and LensWorks, all are excellent publications. If it wasn't for the exchange rate I would certainly buy more of B&W magazine but the Cdn. dollar just isn't what it once was.

    I purchase every copy of B&W Photography (UK) that I find on the shelves. I also learned about APUG from that magazine!

    I am always intrigued to hear how pro's manipulate their images in the darkroom and I am also keen to learn about different processes/materials
