My subscription expires next month and it’s only fair I tell you why I won’t be renewing it. Your magazine deals too much with the dealer and the prospective buyer and not enough with the guy who has the cameras who shoots only for pleasure and lets his photofinisher do the dirty work.

PASADENA, CALIF.—Moon computers may see into human cells: Image enhancing computer programs helped Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory sharpen pictures radioed from moon and Mars by space vehicles. Now they are used experimentally to sharpen pictures of human chromosomes, then sort, classify, label, and display them on high-resolution TV tubes.

On the Kodak Plus-X Pan film leaflet, development times are given for D-76 diluted 1:1, not for D-76 straight. Can I use this developer undiluted, and can I replenish it and use it again? Jack A. Harlan, Jr., Texarkana, Tex. The answer to all your questions is “yes.”

How my dream assignment came true

NORMAN ROTHSCHILD
Just about the time I began to shudder at the thought of nights spent at the typewriter in Cologne’s Hotel Mondial during photokina '70, I was in for a pleasant surprise. Two fascinating trips had been arranged for me— one courtesy of Camera Industries of West Germany, and another sponsored by the Durst firm.

A town house where color thrives

JACOB DESCHIN
Over the years, as the market for print selling and collecting has steadily expanded, there has been much speculation on whether a photographic gallery could survive by selling color prints exclusively. Now, there is a gallery in New York City that has inaugurated a program of offering color prints for sale on a regular basis.

Perspective: know it, use it

EDWARD MEYERS
I’m tired of hearing photographers, art directors, picture editors, picture buyers, and other picture people use the term distortion when they talk about perspective. Although I mentioned this subject in a column some time ago, herewith I’ll attempt to set this subject straight once and for all.

CORA WRIGHT KENNEDY
For a long time now, pros and serious amateurs have been touting the virtues of high-contrast Agfa Brovira No. 6 paper. They happily turn to it to save thin, flat, underexposed negatives, as well as to enhance the tonality of well-exposed gray day scenes.

Helsinki's handwriting on the wall

LES BARRY
In downtown Helsinki, there’s a graffiti board. I don’t know if it keeps Finns from philosophizing on walls, doors, and other surfaces in public places, but the big white panel, standing at a busy corner near the heart of town, gets so much action that some day it’s bound to get a notice in travelers’ guidebooks as a major attraction.

NORMAN GOLDBERG
There’s a good-sized photographer named Hank, who works for a good-sized newspaper out my way, in Mid-America. Hank was brooding about his pictures because his pal, Eddie, was making sharper ones. So Hank called me and asked what he should do about it.

Pre-Surrealism photography: a trip into the subconscious
[no value]
[no value]
MARGERY MANN
In 1968, the Museum of Modern Art in New York collected paintings and sculpture to fill the first floor galleries with an exhibit called Dada, Surrealism, and Their Heritage. At that time, Bruce K. MacDonald of the Photography Department put together a simultaneous show of about 40 prints—many made by unknown photographers—to indicate that the challenge to insight and the fragmentation of established ways of seeing inherent in the paintings of the Surrealists were present in many photographs made long before the Dada movement, which occurred during the first World War, and the Surrealist codification of Dada, which took place shortly thereafter.

Herbert Friedman
It is almost inconceivable that any photographer would use anything but the sharpest of lenses for his slides and motion pictures. Fact is, most photographers are always dreaming of their next equipment upgrade, or new ways to make the technical quality one step better.

What is "crosstalk"? Undesired pickup of a signal from an adjacent track recorded on tape. How important is the “pause control" on a line-current recorder? It’s useful for editing purposes and for dictation, since you can stop the movement of the tape without having to switch from “play” to “record” modes.

Something new, or at least novel, was added to photographic auctions in the double-header offered by Parke-Bernet at its November, 1970, sale—namely, signed photographs of people historically significant in several walks of life in the 19th century.

The image of Parke-Bernet Galleries has suffered. in the eyes of photographica collectors at least, as a result of the November auction last year. Those familiar with the thoroughly researched catalog for the Sidney Strober collection sale of February 1970 found the November sale catalog seemingly underresearched and, at five dollars (six, by mail), overpriced.

NORMAN ROTHSCHILD
In the old days, pros and amateurs used to derisively ask the 35-mm user, “Just what kind of picture can you expect from a camera that makes a negative the size of a postage stamp?” That question is no longer asked. Today, many photographers carry out all their assignments with 35-mm cameras.

To mention the term "press photography" conjures up visions of romantic characters such as Weegee and his generation of rough and ready news photographers. It also seems synonymous with the trademark Speed Graphic. Although that’s a bit unfair, since firms such as Linhof and others also offer many fine cameras of this particular type.

The classic 2¼x2¼ twin-lens reflex, whose origins stem back to the Rolleiflex camera, continues to weather the storm of many camera fads. Today, however, only four companies, Rollei, Minolta, Yashica, and Meopta (Flexaret), continue to make these cameras on a regular basis.

With eye-level prism in place, the 2¼ cameras in this family resemble blown-up versions of 35-mm SLRs. Included here are the Hanimex Praktica 66, also its cousins, the Praktisix and Pentacon Six, the Norita 66, and the Pentax 6x7. All make 2¼ square pictures, except the Pentax, which makes 2¼x2¾-in. "ideal" format images.

Most of us tend to think of view cameras in terms of 4x5-in., 5x7-in., or 8x10-in. negatives and color transparencies. There is no reason, however, why the 2¼-in. worker cannot enjoy this tried, true, and versatile way of making interesting photographs.

The existence of the 47-mm Schneider Super Angulon f/8 lens made the Brooks Veriwide 100 possible. With the 2¼x3¼in. format of this camera, the 47-mm lens covers about 95 degrees. The lens is mounted in an MXV Synchro Compur shutter with speeds of 1 to 1/500 sec.

Unlike photographers who use roll-film, users of sheet-film cameras are not restricted to a comparatively limited number of emulsions. In addition to black-and-white, color transparency, and color negative films, they can obtain continuoustone and high-contrast copying emulsions, film packs, color-slide transparency film, and other special types of emulsions.

HARRY GRIER
Since the advent of the SLR, the exploration of small subjects has become a favorite goal of many photographers. A few macro advocates have turned their lenses toward aquaria and their fish to discover that this type of photography requires attention to details different from subjects in the air.

A metropolis anywhere turns on Parisian photographer Francisco Hidalgo—not just the static intricacy of buildings old and new, but also the moods of the inhabitants. He has traveled throughout the world for the French magazine Réalités, creating visual nuances by interpreting the subject in accordance with his inner vision.

Some artists, it is said, thrive on conflict—emotional, intellectual, etc.—to achieve high levels of creative output. For Ikko, a Japanese free-lance photographer whose reputation is wellestablished in his home country and throughout Europe, the conflict that led to his development of an incredibly fascinating style of photography was conceptual: having been born into a tradition-bound society that was torn open and left paralyzed by a war, how could he function in and interpret that ancient, yet changing, society today?

It is time to deal with him in the terms of his reality—a man who has suffered, both physically and emotionally, like most men, who has been both great and inadequate, in both public and private, like most men, who is a worker and a goof-off—like most men.

LENS PERFORMANCE: Fuji and Seicosha, working in concert, win applause for the good job they did in centering—no small trick with lenses mounted in shutters. Axial flare was due mostly to longitudinal chromatic aberration, with some undercorrected spherical aberration evident wide open also.

LENS PERFORMANCE: Sometimes we can be forgiven for asking, "how good is this lens?” But what about the question, "how bad is this lens?" Perhaps, when the lens is intended to sell for a minimal price, or accompanies a camera that many primarily regard as a "second camera,” the query about "how bad a lens” is most likely.

ROY PINNEY
You have probably seen and marvelled at examples of time-lapse photography, such as a flower spreading out from a closed bud to an open blossom within a matter of seconds. Most likely you thought that this type of motion-picture magic is restricted to the most advanced technicians, who use complex, costly equipment far beyond your reach.

NATALIE ROSENHECK
Since Roger Fenton set off for the Crimea in 1855 with hundreds of pounds of wetplate equipment, the photographic journalist has eagerly undertaken enormous hardship and risk to cover war. Motives have been as various as the photographers themselves, including professional opportunity, the chance to capture dramatic events on film, and the possibility of achieving recognition or glory.

The past holiday season brought with it two omnibus retrospective exhibitions, indicating that (however severe the recession might be) there are still strokes of luck to look forward to. The first of these, a Lewis W. Hine exhibit at the Witkin Gallery in New York (Dec. 2-Jan. 3), was not literally a retrospective, but its size and importance make the distinction merely technical.

Paper plate subs for umbrella

[no value]
On those occasions when direct flash is harsh and bouncelight is too flat, an umbrella provides a soft, directional light. If you don’t want to invest in an umbrella, a close approximation of this type of lighting can be had by bouncing your flash off a 9-in. white paper plate held in the same hand as the flash, and angled toward the subject.
