    View Camera Magazine is Late . . . Again (Sorry, bit of a rant)

    I have really gotten into large format photography in a big way. Haven't picked up my Minoltas except to look at them in months. You know, make sure they're still there.

    Anyway, I resubscribed to The View Camera Magazine after a few years lapse in February. The sucker has been two months late each issue thus far and I have yet to receive my July/August issue. I see everyone talking about their latest issue. I hope to have mine by Christmas.

    Anyone else experiencing UBER-snail mail-itis on this one like I am? Or is it personal?

    (Oh, I know it's not personal.) But Geez . . .

    Thanks. Rant concluded unless it isn't here by Tuesday.
    Thank you.

    I had went into my local Barnes and Nobel and I saw it there so I picked it up. I have the Jul/August issue and I was pleased with seeing so little digital in a magazine that I just subscribed. I think it will be great. I'll let you know if I ever get a copy from them. The inside cover and first page are an ad for a Sony digital camera

    it's funny, over the years the two most bitched about merchants have been Wisner and View Camera Magazine. Wisner finally died, dried up and blew away leaving VCM as the lone subject of continued wrath and derision. I feel for you buddy, but ya had to know when you signed up that part of the unlisted benefits of VCM was it's heightened sense of anticipation due to every longer waits between issues.

    I had heard some grumblings come to mention it. But I think I will go the B&N route next year. Besides, I get to laugh derisively at the DSLR for Dummies books whilst I'm there.
    Thank you.

    Do they have anything to say about these delays if you try to contact them?

    From what I remember after Eric mentions it, don't bother. Just assume the Buddha position, some wierd lotus thingy or other, and wait.
    Thank you.

    Eric... when did Ron Wisner die? I must have missed that bit of news. I though he was racing sailboats not too long ago.

    I have yet to recieve the July/August edition. I tried calling on Friday, no answer and sent them an email, also no response. Normally, I don't care if it is late since it usually gets here in its own fashion, however, this time there is stuff I am am looking forward to seeing.

    It's too bad, the last issue I recieved (May/June?) was one of the better ones I've read in quite awhile. (typos and editing notwithstanding) Lots of content, and interesting reading. I think things would look more professional if they kept their typefaces more consistent. Having taught english lit for too many years to count, I begin to suspect that someone doesn't have much to say when they start using large fonts. Another unfortunate part of this all is that my May/June password no longer works, and I would dearly like to access some articles in the subscriber section.
