While Cora Wright Kennedy’s “Tools & Techniques” column, February issue, covered many make-do cures for static-electricity film and camera problems, it failed to mention a preparation that has been designed specifically for these purposes—Singh-Ray Anti-Static Compound CX-3B.

Kenneth Poli
I hate Sweeping Statements, don’t you? Should that sound like one to you, I confess that it sounds like one to me, too. But I simply mistrust any rule that admits no exceptions. There may be occasional commands that are universally and eternally true for photographers, but I can’t think of any—except perhaps, “Always remove the lens cap before releasing the shutter.”

Today’s students of photographic history are more fortunate than those of a generation ago; their knowledge of early images is no longer limited to the printed page. Now they can go to museums to view examples of daguerreotypes, calotypes, and albumen prints.

In the Bahamas, you can make a big splash—but, please, not at the expense of your equipment!

Carl Purcell
The islands of the Bahamas are like the pearls in a necklace, loosely strung against the cobalt blue of the Caribbean. The bands of color— deep-blue, aquamarine, white sand, and a wash of light-blue sky, all etched in the tropical sun—are reminiscent of a Winslow Homer painting.

Color-print films are becoming sharper, finer-grained, more colorful, and increasingly popular. In the 35-mm format alone, negative-color films now account for more than two-thirds of all film sales. In last month’s issue of POP PHOTO, we reported on four new Kodacolor VR print films.

The photographs shown here are a small sampling of the more than 200 black-andwhite and color images that were awarded prizes.

Cora Wright Kennedy
One of the delightful aspects of photography is that experimenting with new equipment can, at times, open new visual doors or help solve problems. So it is that I’ve had a recurring love affair with various kinds of wide-angle lenses. And nowadays I find myself doing more and more shooting with these wide optics.

Howard Chapnick
Pragmatic photography, pictures produced for commercial or social ends, characterized the 150 years before the ’70s. Photographs had not yet become precious enough to exhibit in museums; store in vaults with precise temperature, light, and humidity controls; or display on the walls of photographic esthetes and investors.

Larry Sribnick
If you’re interested in learning color printing, meeting Ray Abbott is an experience you’ll never forget. Ray is an expert color printer. Somehow he finds the time to help people who are just getting started. Listening to Ray gives you the feeling that each of his words should be etched in stone; and if you are a beginning color printer, you should treat Ray's words as if they were.

Arthur Goldsmith
As readers of this magazine are well aware, one of the long-standing rumors of the world photographic industry has been that of an improved 35-mm cassette by Eastman Kodak Co. Actually, it’s been more than a rumor: various patent disclosures have been published which indicate the direction of Kodak’s thinking.

Like many professional photographers, I find myself using 35-mm equipment much of the time. Occasionally, though, a client will request larger-format pictures. If I have a choice, or am shooting for myself, the photographs invariably get made with a 6x6-cm roll-film camera: the medium format’s bigger negatives produce better results without requiring me to sacrifice too much mobility.

Even if it weren’t obvious from the exterior, an inside look at the SQ-A shows how closely related it is to Bronica’s ETR. See the Lab Report on that 4.5x6-cm SLR in the November, 1978 issue of POP PHOTO, and you’ll be struck with the similarities between it and the SQ-A.

Mechanical: All three lenses are mechanically alike. They have focusing helicoids made of dissimilar metals—from the outside inward: brass, aluminum, aluminum—with twin parallel guide arms. Their autodiaphragm mechanism is part of the shutter and uses rather heavy click-stop detent action to maintain the same f-stop setting even after repeated operation under the large spring forces.

Bob Schwalberg
Teleconverters are optical accessories that multiply the focal lengths of camera lenses by some fixed factor, without changing the lens distance focusing scale. Converters are mounted between the lens and the SLR camera body, and all current models incorporate mechanical linkages to preserve lens auto-aperture operation and the various light-metering modes of the cameras with which they are used.

Ever since Fred Spira first introduced the TelXtender in the 1960s, it’s been assumed that teleconverters are useful only with tele lenses. True, over the years a few camera makers, as well as some independent makers of optics, have offered converters for normal and wide-angle lenses; but traditions die hard.

Dorothea Lange, introduction by Christopher Cox. Millerton, N.Y.: Aperture, Inc., 1982; 96 pp. with 42 photographs; hardcover, S9.95. The newest addition to Aperture’s History of Photography Series, this slim monograph deals mainly with Lange’s already familiar work for the FSA. Also included are some lesser known, but equally strong, photos from that same period and a “teaser” of six images made toward the end of her life. Y.K.

Nude Workshop, by Lucien Clergue. New York: The Viking Press, 1982; 108 pp. with 82 black-and-white photographs; hardcover, $40. French photographer Lucien Clergue has been “celebrating” nudes—mainly female-—for more than 20 years in settings as diverse as the Death Valley Desert, the Mediterranean Sea, and a Venetian palazzo. While there is nothing meek about his chosen settings, so there is nothing mild in Clergue’s monumental approach to the nude.

Light, but not a lightweight: JVC’s answer to video on the go

Leendert Drukker
By Leendert Drukker A miniature-VHS offshoot—who needs it? That’s what I and a lot of other folks in the field thought when JVC started plugging for a more compact, lighter-weight video recorder using a smaller, shorter-run version of the standard VHS cassette. With a maximum play time of 20 minutes, it wouldn’t accommodate full-length films; requiring a separate camera, it would be vanquished by the combined camera/ recorders now under development.

Don’t expect a rigorously reasoned column from me: Bob Schwalberg says I do experiments wrong, and he may be right. He often agrees with my results, but seldom with my approach. But then, Bob was trained in the methodology of scientific experimenting, and I don’t think it has occurred to him that when I do a test I’m not doing science; I’m just trying to find things out.

Michele A. Frank
Some years ago, a smart engineer decided that electronic-flash synch cords were a nuisance that could be eliminated. The result was the nowstandard “hot shoe” for cameras. The next step toward greater convenience (and exposure accuracy) in electronic-flash photography was the introduction of the automatic flash unit.

André Kertész: A Lifetime of Perception, introduction by Ben Lifson, edited by Jane Corkin. Toronto and New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., a Key Porter Book, 1982; 260 pp. with 150 duotone illustrations; hardcover, $45. Once you get past Lifson’s somewhat maudlin introduction, you will surely find this latest monograph devoted to Kertész a total delight! Many of the images have long been classics; however, a good number are recent discoveries. We are all the richer for their publication in this collection. Y.K.

Here’s to technological progress in photo hardware. I’m for any concept (new or old) that can help us make better pictures. My own collection of photo gear includes most of the devices that I call “can’t-miss” aids. For example, most of my cameras have throughlens metering.

Pointed Portraits, photographs by Chalkie Davis. London and New York: Eel Pie Publishing/Kampmann & Co., 1982; 112 pp. with 100 black-and-white photographs; paperback, $9.95. A collection of photographs of rock music’s leading lights over the past 10 years, Pointed Portraits will probably generate far more excitement among aficionados than noncognoscenti. The latter do have one advantage, however— the really good photos (and there are quite a few here) stand out even more strongly without benefit of their subjects’ celebrity.

How did I manage to get these annoying, crosswise streaks on all frames of one roll of film? I developed as I usually do. Kim McNeice, Moonachie, N.J. These vertical marks that extend all the way across the 35-mm film width are typical of a problem called reverse winding.

By far the most personal Christmas card we received at POP PHOTO in 1982 was this Yuletide group portrait of various staffers and contributors sent by Alain Gagnon of Rimousla, Quebec, Canada. Standing (1. to r.) are columnist Carl Purcell, contributing editors Cora Wright Kennedy and David Vestal, and columnist Howard Chapnick.
