Why I prefer using an automatic bellows, and a brief report about a new slide duplicator
[no value]
[no value]
NORMAN ROTHSCHILD
Anyone having access to my equipment cabinets would find, among other paraphernalia, eight bellows extensions—two of which are Novoflex automatic extension bellows (one for the Konica Autoreflex and the other for the Leica R3 SLR). In this age of exposure automation, I find having a bellows extension that maintains the internal diaphragm automation of my SLR is a blessing for all kinds of picture-taking.

How can I check black-and-white film fixer to see if it is still good, if I don’t have any special test solutions? Is there a film test? W. Millington, San Francisco, Ca. Yes, there is. First put some of your fixer in a small tray or a graduate, assuming the solution seems in good condition.

Sunk by hurricane, the "Purple Boat" gets new lease on life atop large purple barge

JACOB DESCHIN
Almost two years ago a wave of dismay shook the New York photographic community when the Floating Foundation of Photography, the “Purple Boat” of far-reaching fame, sank in the Hudson River at its berth in New York City’s West 79th Street Boat Basin.

DON CYR
Finding suitable teaching aids to meet our individual needs in the classroom is not all that easy. That old saying, “What is jolly good for you is not jolly good for me,” rings out loud and clear, especially when it comes to the choosing of appropriate instructional aids for photography.

You, too, must have heard it: How can you possibly see anything when you always have that camera in front of your face? Well, the proof is in the footage: filming forces you to make it a more profound experience—when traveling, an unforgettable one.

BILL PIERCE
Color photography and black-and-white photography are not the same. Sometimes we use different equipment for the two different mediums. Most often we use the same cameras, meters, lights, etc.—but we use them differently. We should even see or perceive differently when we are shooting color and black-and-white.

There are lots of devices you can use to process color prints. And, with a little luck and a reasonable amount of skill, all of them can be made to yield decent results. Some print-processing devices are cheap. Others are expensive. Some provide consistent results and others perform less repeatably.

NORMAN GOLDBERG
Of all the wonders of the photographic system, film is perhaps the biggest wonder of all. The simplest black-andwhite film is so complex in its information-recording ability that the attempts to characterize it fully become quite involved.

Cultivating— which is simply the turning or loosening of the soil by mechanical means in order to control weeds and aerate the soil— might seem to some to be the most prosaic of all vineyard operations. Yet, the truth is, we find its contribution to the production of fine wines far more complex than one might expect.

37 WAYS TO IMPROVE CAMERA DESIGN
Here’s a highly opinionated plea for more simplicity, sanity, and convenience. Impossible request? Read and decide
35-mm rangefinder cameras
35-mm single-lens reflexes

DAVID VESTAL
I’m talking about design for use, not the technological end: I'm a photographer, not an engineer. Camera design has come far since the 1940s, and the photographer makes fewer unnecessary motions while working, but there is still some cleaning up to do.

MAKING THE MOST OF ZOOM LENSES
Is the "prime," fixed-focal-length lens obsolete? Not necessarily, but zoom lenses are coming of age. Here's how to use them for best results
Wide-angle to normal: adding flexibility to wide-angle vision
Normal to short telephoto: workhorse zooms in the most-used range
The extremely versatile short-to-medium telephotos
Reaching out with the medium-to-supertelephoto zooms
Getting close with "macro" capability
You can use zoom lenses with flash, but watch out for the wide focal lengths
Many of the zooms will work with teleconverters, but you pay the price in reduced light transmission
[no value]
[no value]
LIEF ERICKSENN
The modern zoom lens has very little in common with its predecessors of a decade or so ago. Criticisms leveled against zooms in those days were largely justified. Those zooms were hard to focus, seldom possessed of high resolution, didn’t stay in focus when zoomed, and often suffered from severe image-degrading flare.

LENNY LIPTON
Could there be a still photographer who hasn’t wished, at one time or another, that he could image his subject with its fourth dimension-—time? Judging from our readership, many photographers also own a motion-picture camera, but there is a wide chasm between possessing and utilizing.

The name Kodachrome is enough to make a color film important. But Kodachrome 40 is especially important to professionals and serious amateurs whose work calls for photography under tungsten light. More specifically, the light for which Kodachrome 40 is balanced or intended is 3400 K.

DON LEAVITT
Until the recent introduction of superfast ASA 400 color-negative films by Kodak, Fuji, Sakura, and 3M, the concept of color-negative material as a universal film was barely feasible, and not really practical. After all, who needed an ASA 100 universal colornegative film?

If you’re looking for a reasonably priced, aperture-priority AE-function camera with no frills but a good share of modern photographic technology, you might like to eyeball the Fujica AZ-1. Fuji also had the good sense to offer its new compact with a 43—75mm f/3.5 zoom lens rather than the conventional standard 50-mm, although no one is forcing you should you prefer it without the zoom.

At a time when many 35-mm SLR manufacturers are introducing new models incorporating cost-trimming features such as plastic cover panels, it was natural to expect the AZ-1 to fol low suit. But a careful examination for any sign of cost reduction, using Fuji's earlier models (the ST series of 701, 801, 901) as criteria, showed only minor changes that might be attributed to economics.

I.J. Neuhart
Is architecture art? If you answered yes, then what about the photography of architecture: is that art? If it’s the architectural photography of Julius Shulman, it is indeed. Mr. Shulman makes us realize that the important element in all architectural photography is the architecture—not the photograph.

Can it be nearly a decade since the big picture-story magazines like Life and Look ceased regular publication? It hardly seems possible that these photojournalistic meccas have been gone so long. Certainly, the tradition they represented is still very much alive and kicking.

Night Train at Wiscasset Station is a dual memorial: to a way of life that, though stubbornly clinging to today, is fast disappearing as so many of our former traditions have done; and to the work of a relatively uncelebrated photographer whose own life ceased nearly two decades ago.
