DAVID B. EISENDRATH
A few weeks ago, a friend called and asked me about a camera he wanted to buy. I gave him my stock answer: "If it makes pictures, it’s a good camera.” I pointed out, however, that what he probably wanted to know was how it compared with other cameras in the same price range and of the same general type, and suggested that he see if he found it comfortable to hold and work with (features that I find most important in choosing between several good-quality cameras).

AL FRANCEKEVICH
Photographers make a fetish of sharpness, as well they should. The idea of sharpness is constantly discussed wherever photographers gather. The relative performance of lenses is hotly debated, and film developers are sought that produce maximum acutance and detail.

GEORGE W. CUSHMAN
Is it better to record sound while shooting the picture, or to record it afterwards? Strangely enough, most amateurs prefer to shoot their scenes first, and then, after the film has been processed and edited, add the sound. They feel this is the easiest way.

COMPOSING IN THE VIEWFINDER

PETER GOWLAND
Understanding the elements of composition is as important in glamor photography as selecting a beautiful model to work with. There are basic precepts that make a picture pleasing to the eye and although these rules can be successfully broken, the most successful photographers are those who first understand what rules they're breaking.

H. M. KINZER
Exactly two years ago I wrote something about the way Polaroid Land materials could be used to check on color exposure. It was based on Philippe Halsman's practice of using the 200-speed 4x5 film (60second processing, at that time) with a 10X neutral density filter to get correct exposures for the old E-l Ektachrome with a speed of 12.

THE ‘DIFFERENT’ PORTRAIT

More than a portrait
Hands can help
[no value]

FRITZ HENLE
Strictly speaking, a portrait is a “pictorial representation of a person.” Can it be more? Should it be more? Can we treat a human subject—especially a face—as we would an inanimate subject? Is it possible to photograph a face so that the picture contains more than a mere literal reproduction of its particular arrangement of features?

If you’ve been watching the progress of photo-resistor meters, take a look at the new Honeywell Pentax Clip-On unit that couples to the shutter-speed wheel of H-l and H-3 Pentax cameras. No matter how you consider it, this is a neat and unusual little job.

The Fujicarex will mark the entrance of Fujica into the SLR field. The fully automatic camera will have a 50-mm f/1.9 lens and a between-the-lens shutter ranging from 1 to 1/500 second. The front lens element is interchangeable and all controls are under the thumb at the back of the camera; it also has a matching-needle electric eye meter system and a depth-of-field preview button.

H. M. KINZER
In an age when distances are figured in light-years—or at least in millions of miles—a few hundred feet don't sound like much. But photographers are still fascinated with the tools that enable them to reach out to such modest lengths. Everybody with an interchangeable-lens camera has tried—or hopes to try —one of those foot-long optical wonders that pulls mile-away scenery to within grasping distance.

Recent innovations in the field of lighting now give the photographer new tools and leave him almost no excuse for poorly lighted pictures. Improved light bulbs and their accessory equipment including battery-powered portable lighting units, inspired by the needs of the movie-maker, also have wide-range application for still photography.

It’s time for night color photography to try for the “decisive moment.” Night pictures can be “moments.” too. We have the film and the cameras to do it, so why do we hamper ourselves with rules that are now out of date? The long exposure is passé.

RENÉ GROEBLI
The color in my work is not accidental. To be good, color must be controlled. This control must produce a picture in which the color contributes both in terms of interest and of reinforcing the mood of the subject matter. It must never be relinquished from the time you conceive of the picture until the time you make the final print.

You can rework your favorite pictures to give them woodcut or charcoal-drawing effects with the use of a commercial film which might be new to many photographers: Kodalith Ortho. (If your dealer doesn’t stock it, he can order it for you.) According to the instructions, it’s “an extremely high-contrast film for photo-mechanical reproductions."

In spite of the above, a few professional photographers and some newspaper and magazine photo laboratories have been processing High Speed Ektachrome transparency film in the C22 Kodacolor kit in order to obtain color negatives. (Although dependability requires that each new emulsion be tested for this use, to date every emulsion I have used has proved satisfactory.)

B.D
This year U.S. Camera has undergone a metamorphosis. It is reproduced in good-quality offset on heavy stock, a big improvement over the familiar mediocre letterpress of previous issues, and it has abandoned the advertising. The increase in quality is offset by a sharp decrease in quantity.

CHARLES REYNOLDS
The motion picture camera, to most movie-makers, is an instrument of direct statement. It is used to tell the audience, in explicit visual terms, about a particular thing. It has, however, another less fundamental use which has occasionally yielded fascinating results.

Last month we explored some of the movie subjects to be found right around our home town. We would now like to develop this approach a little more fully. The strongest possible inducement to start filming is the knowledge that there is an honestly eager audience awaiting one's efforts—and not just a few intimate friends who will bear with us.

What is the “right” music—for a scene, a sequence, or an entire film ? Taste and experience are the ultimate guides—yet the film-maker seeks some rules that he can follow. Frequently, however, such rules turn out to be preconceptions which may mislead rather than help him.

In appearance Kodak’s latest 8-mm projector strongly resembles its long line of Showtime models, and, indeed, mechanically it is closely related. Optically, however, the Hi-Mat takes a big step. It is the brightest 8-mm projector with tungsten-light source we have ever seen.

That’s a good ????? QUESTION!!
What screen viewing distance gives the best perspective?
Can I shoot reverse action movies on 16-mm sound film?
Would step-down rings make smaller lens filters usable?
Can a photographer prohibit buyers from copying prints?
How can I make a plastic film developing reel easy to load?
Where do I start measuring lens-to-subject distance?
Are 3-D movies projected from a single length of film?
