    I think he meant that Mr. Wisner's business died, not the man himself.

    So if I want VCM I should buy it at a bookstore and skip the subscription discount?

    Is it really so good that it is worth the angst?

    steve,

    some people love it, some people don't ..

    i had a subscription for a couple of years.
    it was in the pre-spell-checker-editor days ...
    image quality wasn't always the best editing and spelling ....
    it wasn't the best either ... , but the articles were sometimes interesting.

    i just got tired of the publisher and how he carried on,
    and didn't want to support that.

    After looking at recent editions of B&W (American), Photo Technique and Lenswork, it appears that VCM is the last remaining magazine that is predominately analog. Some of the British magazines maybe, but I am not sure. The others have moved to mostly digital or make it ambiguous about the “provenance” of their content which I find irksome. I will continue to subscript to VCM despite the hassle, the other magazines I will not renew. Of course, I will renew APUG, the one true Analog resource.

    I have been subscribing to the mag since the first issue. I get a new issue every two months, or thereabouts, but usually within the time period on the cover. Close enough for me. I plan on continuing to subscribe. It is the only magazine I get, and I feel it is a good value. My latest issue arrive last week. This weekend was too full to dive into it, but I will soon.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I received the latest issue this past Friday.

    Years ago, people complained that Popular Photography arrived two months in advance of the date shown on the cover.

    The cover that arrived on Friday says it's the "July/August" issue.there's nothing time sensitive about the content, so what the cover says is unimportant. The fact is that a new issue arrives regularly every two months.

    I too fell into the subscription pit. With the subscription you should have access to info on the web, but didn't find anything worth the frustration. Forget about contacting them. If you do get a reply, it will be terse and brief at best. I won't be subscribing again, as I find the issue at Barnes and Nobel weeks before my copy arrives in the mail. At least buying it at B&N I get to check it out to see if it is worth buying.

    Agreed...

    After 2 years of having to call EVERY other month to inquire where the current issue was, I decided that it was not wise to renew. Always nonchalant, nonapologetic and unfazed by my consistent calls - there is something very unusual about ensuring subscribers receive their issues well after distributors such as B&N. Clearly I wasn't needed nor valued.

    Thanks. Rant concluded unless it isn't here by Tuesday.
    This one of the reasons that I finally quit subscribing and purchasing VC off the newsstand. After about 15 years I just got feed up with this crap along with the poor editing. In it's heyday VC was a pretty good rag and over the past few years the B&W repros have improved but I grew ever weary of chasing my copies down. I even had to purchase copies off the news stand to make up for one I never received.

    My other photo magazine subscriptions came in like clockwork so I have confidence in my postal delivery.

    My 2 cents.
