    That is the way it is here, so I only subscribe to those magazines that I can't get here, like "Arizona Highways". I checked the bookstore last night, neither View Camera or B&W Magazine (US) has arrived. I guess I will have to wait for the boat to get here a little longer. Still waiting to see the B&W issue about APUG. I was able to get LensWork last week though.

    Any one proofreading VC???

    Just got my first issue as a subscriber; the March/April one. It commemorates being the 100th issue as well. The articles are interesting, the photographs excellent and typically well reproduced. But boy was I shocked at the number of typos and just plain unintelligible writing. The most egregious article was by John Thomas titled: Zen and the Botanical: The Art of James Lattanzio. Typos abound (including names like Avendon for Avedon), sentences are skewed and, in one case unintelligible, and there is one instance of a random phrase just sitting there without a verb.

    I like the magazine. I will continue to read it and subscribe. I am just astonished that a publication read by 16,000 people is so sloppily presented. Steve, if you read this, please get someone to check the articles for errors that no student in a competent high school would be allowed to get away with. It's just plain embarassing!

    That's strange. I thought VC had recently added an extra layer of "poof reading" to the work flow.

    I haven't seen the new issue yet. I notice these things too, but others usually beat me to the punch and say something first.

    Yes it is embarassing. Steve should be ashamed of himself for printing the magazine. It has the potential to be so much more but instead it is a waste of glossy paper Those who buy it should be ashamed that they are supporting such a slip-shod POS magazine like VC. View Camera Magazine is like a package of rice cakes. Both take up space, and are filled with something that has very little substance.

    Of course, why should Simmons care? He has no competition and people continue to buy his trash because they imagine they can't get the same thing elsewhere. These are also the same people who complain about the editing and proof reading problems. Vote with your wallet and cancel your subscription. Use your money to pay for a subscription to Emulsion or buy some film to use with your view camera.


    P.S I have no affiliation with Emulsion and am a bit tired of hearing the gripes about VC magazine from folks who continue to buy it, and I am having a bad day and will most likely apologize for the tone of this post later.
