I must write to express my gratefulness for the sudden maturity of photo magazines marked by the new format of POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY. This is the year that photography and along with it, your photo magazine, turns 21. In our small newspaper we are at least advanced amateurs.

Some years ago in this column I wrote about making color pictures of sunsets. Surprisingly enough, a number of amateurs have told me that they not only remembered and used the information quite often, but bad even copied the chart published and carried it in their camera case.

There were years when it was little short of horrendous and horrifying to think of Florida in the summer. Well, the weather hasn’t changed very much, but the ways of people have. Places are being explored in all the wrong times of the year, much to the pleasure of hotels, airlines, and railroads.

No matter where you happen to be during June you’ll be near an abundance of events worth photographing, and many of them will challenge your familiarity with your camera and equipment. Your top shutter speeds, the 1/500 and 1/1000 second settings you seldom if ever use, will be close friends when it comes to stopping the rodeo action available to you in most western and some southern states.

There used to be a story about a photographer who built a successful and prosperous career on a mistake—an unintentional double exposure that looked more creative than anything he had done before. All he did was to switch to intentional double exposures! It sounds more like a legend to me, but it's true that, in the days when few cameras had double-exposure prevention, pros did get a lot of kidding when they goofed.

PETER GOWLAND
It’s fun to look through a private photo album and see how the styles of hair and dress and people themselves change through the years. But when you're showing a collection of glamor studies that you consider to he your prize photo samples, anything that tends to date them takes away from their appeal.

ARTHUR GOLDSMITH
Photography as a cult has its own peculiar jargon which helps insiders impress outsiders with their superior knowledge but which sometimes hinders beginners from feeling at home in their new hobby and may even make it impossible for them to understand what is being talked about.

Despite its rather formidable title, this is one of the most important books on photography to have been published in years. Evans, director of the Color Technology Division of the Eastman Kodak Co., has been doing research in his chosen subject for many years during which he has been lecturing and writing books full of his stimulating findings.

There are certain things in life that we accept without question. One of these is the belief that our safelight is actually safe. It's enough for most of us that we are using the proper-color safelight for the enlarging paper we have on hand. At this point, let me introduce some doubt into your mind with a few reasons why your safelight might not be as safe as you think it is.

PHOTOJOURNALISM TOO MUCH WITH US?

JACOB DESCHIN
Unquestionably, the era of the photo reporter-interpreter that came in with the advent of the small camera has had an unprecedented effect on the character and potentialities of the photographic medium. The nature of this influence, which continues with increasing vigor, finds its aptest expression in the phrase, “extension of the eye," that is, to “see" via the camera with the directness, the adaptability, and the spontaneity of the human eye itself.

Bruce Downes
The 36th Annual MPDFA National Convention and Photographic Trade Show in St. Louis (see page 50) disclosed some easing of one of the industry’s most vexing problems—too many cameras and too frequent model changes. Sparked by international competition, 35-mm still and 8-mm movie cameras have been spawning like rabbits in springtime, but this year the nation’s retailers were relieved to find somewhat less than the usual flood of new models to plague them.

The IV is equipped with 50-mm Solinar f/2.8 lens and the V with 55-mm Solagon f/2. Otherwise they are identical meter-coupled follow-pointer cameras taking a variety of interchangeable lenses, prisms, and waist-level finders. Lenses available for these cameras are 35-mm f/3.4, 90-mm f/3.4, and 135-mm f/4. Model IV is priced at $159. Model V at $198.
AIRES
Konica F
$379.95
KONICA F Boasting the most unusual shutter in the show, and perhaps in the industry, is the Konica F. Although a focal-plane, this shutter operates with metal vanes instead of curtains and can achieve an X synch of 1/125 and M synch all the way to 1/2,000. In addition the F has a built-in cross-coupled follow-pointer-type exposure system, releases its pressure plate during film transport, and is delivered with an automatic f/1.4 lens of 52-mm for $379.95.
AIRES
AUTOMEX
$299.95
MIRANDA AUTOMEX Now equipped with an internally coupled instant-return diaphragm, the Automex, latest camera in the Miranda line, combines metering (cross-coupled with the speed and aperture dials) and a follow-pointer system which can be seen in the bright viewing window of the pentaprism finder. The camera will, however, still take all automatic spring-loaded lenses from older models. Price of the camera with 50-mm Soligor Automatic lens is $299.95 plus case.
AIRES
Model D
$119.95

flip-flop
$12.95
CORMAC CHEMICAL CO. Unibath products and some pretty clever Cormac engineering have ganged up to make a few wild combinations. One is the new “flip-flop” processing tank, where you merely attach your diluted bottle of UNIBATH to the tank and “flop” it over. Then when your developing time is over, you just "flip” it back and the solution empties itself back into the bottle for future use. Using this system with the new UNIDRI quick-drying agent, Cormac has come out with two kits slated to the traveler, professional or amateur. One of these kits, containing a tank, dilution bottle, and six-minute sand-filled “egg-timer,” sells for $12.95. The other more complicated one called the UNIKIT SR. contains a changing bag as well, plus some other useful items and lists for $29.95. Price of the tank alone is $5.95. (“Flip” for it anyone?)
AIRES
MINI-GRIP
$19.95
KILFITT MINI-GRIP This unusual item is a pocket-size grip handle with trigger release which converts to a gun stock when a three-part shoulder brace, stored inside the handle, is assembled and attached. The Mini-Grip weighs seven ounces, is constructed of magnesium alloy, can be used with either still or movie cameras, and is priced at $19.95; leather zipper case at $6.95.
AIRES
Nikon S-3M
$25
NIKON Other news from Nikon includes introduction at the MPDFA show of a 250-exposure motorized back for either the rangefinder or reflex models. Prices have not at this moment been established. The Nikon S-3M is a camera providing half-frame exposures and can be provided with a special motorized back offering 72 automatic exposures on one roll of film (if used with the 250 back it provides 500 exposures). Clever innovation on this camera is the frame selector for either 35-or 50-mm lenses. Price of the S-3M is $25 more than the S-3.

The big news from the 36th Annual Master Photo Dealers and Finishers Association convention in St. Louis last March was a lack of startling news, of unexpected products, of radical model changes. This is not to say it wasn’t an active show: by our count approximately 200 new products were introduced, enough to keep POP PHOTO staff testers busy for months.

The fun and adventure of boating, with its pictorial ingredients of sky, water, and action, all combine to make endless subject matter for the boating-camera fan. But the very elements that contribute to off-beat pictures present special problems in protecting equipment, preventing spoiled or overexposed film, and out-guessing the motion of wind and wave in marine photos.

Most amateurs find it an excellent way to launch their photographic careers, or to make their hobby pay for itself.

LLOYD WEST
We usually think that the sharper a picture is the better it is. This is often true, hut not always. Sharpness control is another tool used in our quest for photographic quality. In pictures where over-all sharpness is important you can get it by careful focusing, by stopping down the lens to gain sufficient depth of field, and by avoiding camera motion.

If a small tank is used, like one of 8-oz capacity for 35-mm film, is there danger of the solution losing strength during development? I understand that the supply bottle of developer will retain its strength if replenisher is added, but am concerned about what happens to the solution in the tank while the film is developing.
