    Have considered picking up VC/CA since Steve has started to include traditional B&W articles,>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    VC and CA have always done traditional darkroom articles in every issue since the beginning.

    I cannot pick only one because each serves a different purpose for me.

    LensWork
    View Camera
    B&W Magazine (the American publication)

    interesting question to really think about. i really like B&W because there are so many good 'graphs therein. it's a great source of inspiration. but Lenswork, for me, has the most consistant editorial approach, by far the most beautiful printing standards and i'm never dissatisfied with an issue (i subscribe to both.) VC/CA as well as Black and White Photography try to serve too many masters (for my taste of course) and i only buy occasional issues. and Phototechniques is all over the map too. so.....i guess......nah.....gotta keep Lenswork and B&W.

    I noticed that Photo Techniques has not been mentioned - not suprising, since they seem to be going down the digital path more, with fewer articles on 'traditional' photography (whatever that is). I'll still read it when they have good articles...

    I also read Lenswork, VC, and B&W Photography.
    Cheers!

    I read almost everything, given my 1hr and 45min commute in and out of NYC every day. I finally started paring down the list, not renewing certain magazine when the subscription expires.

    View Camera and Phototechniques no longer make the cut. The part of View Camera I'll most miss are the occasional large format color portfolios. This is work you won't see elsewhere, given the usual fine art=B&W prejudice of most "prestige" magazines. Phototechniques has seriously lost its way. Bring back Mike Johnson!

    Lenswork and B&W (American) I buy about 50% of the time based on the content of a specific issue.

    Camera Arts still has the potential to be a signifcant magazine. The portfolios are often excellent, but the product reviews are superficial and bland.

    B&W (UK) is too much of a amatuer, camera club, digital combination mish mosh to appeal to my sensibilities, though the historical portfolios are very good.

    I'll continue to subscribe to Popular Photography. Why? Its about a buck month for the subscription and it keeps me up on what's going on on the consumer side of things. (Don't your friends often ask you what camera they should buy?)

    My single favorite magazine, the last one to go, is PDN. A great mix news, pictures, technique and significant photojournalist portfolios unmatched by any other publication.

    My only subscription is to Mono, the UK specialist monochrome magazine.

    www.arempublishing.co.uk

    Itís got to be good value at £10 per year. However I also buy Black and White (UK) regulary, I also lust after LensWork, now thatís a subscription I really must renew, but it is very expensive by the time it gets to Middle England.
    By the way, I currently pick up Brooks Jensenís audio blogs, which I find of interest, plug in at

    http://www.lenswork.com/stl-web/b2/index.php

    Actually Iíve just looked at the LensWork subscription page and, with the current exchange rate, itís a bit cheaper than I thought. I shall renew my subscription today.
    Regards Dave.
