CRITICAL FOCUS

Like politics, choosing a versatile lens group of minimum weight and bulk involves the art of compromise

Kenneth Poli
As we struggle together toward finally achieving the ideal camera outfit as each of us sees it in personal terms, let me describe my latest decision. It’s a compromise between the ideal and the practical, of course. Some of you may recall a column of mine (POP PHOTO, Sept., 1981, p.6) which discussed the sweet agonies of trying to choose a long lens.

Exploring Jerusalem, the heart of Israel

Carl Pucell
The heart of Israel is the old, walled city of Jerusalem. To truly know Israel, one must explore the narrow cobblestone streets and alleys of this ancient city. It is awesome to walk in the footsteps of Christ along the Via Dolorosa, knowing that this was the same tortuous route where He carried the Cross on His way to Calvary.

Leendert Drukker
Here are three different systems to help your videotapes stand out. Starting with the simplest and cheapest way, you can call on the myriad of filters and special-effects screens so familiar to still photographers. However, one distributor is now offering videomakers a line with a difference: the Marumi V-I system is motorized.

Norman Rothschild
In the 1950s, at a meeting of New York City’s Village Camera Club, we had invited a painter to judge our monthly color-slide competition. The judging went quite well, until the first-place slide was chosen. It was a backlighted photo of multi-colored clothes on a washline.

Michele A. Frank
One of my annual new year’s resolutions is to spend more time with my children while they are still living at home. Psychologists say that one of the best ways to spend time with children is to involve them in a hobby, preferably one of interest to both parent and child.

Larry Sribnick
If you process your own color negatives and wonder if the quality of your work is as good as that of a big-time lab like Kodak’s, read on! When I process my Kodacolor negatives with Kodak’s C-41 chemical process or its equivalent, I usually add another step to the process: a water presoak.

Norman Goldberg
By far the most technologically advanced and complex cameras in widespread use today are 35-mm SLRs. They offer the most to the student of camera design and construction. All of them are marvels of compactness. Their combination of electronic, mechanical, and optical features cannot be equaled in any other consumer-grade product that I’m familiar with.

Picture a video cassette about the size of its familiar audio counterpart which provides up to two hours of recording time. Imagine an all-in-one, self-contained, battery-powered video camera not all that much bulkier and heavier than a top-line super 8 sound camera.

Arthur Goldmsith
Daniel Pons, born in France in 1932, is a remarkable hybrid of creative talents. He first established himself as a poet with four books published, the most recent being The Madman and the Creator (Paris, 1980). He turned to photography during the past few years to find a visual means of expressing the sensibility embodied in the words of his poetry.

Bryan F. Peterson
The most common question that students ask is, “How can I learn to see?” Of course, they all see, but their pictures are seldom compelling images of what they were looking at. Every successful photograph depends on many factors: subject, timing, exposure, composition, lighting, lens choice, and point of view.

Thom O’Connor
If a recent lens-making trend is any indication, many of the 50-, 40-, and 35-mm lenses normally seen as standard issue on SLR cameras may soon be gathering dust on owners’ shelves, to be replaced by zoom lenses that cover not only those focal lengths, but that also drop down to starting points as wide-angled as 21-mm.

Photographer Tony Mendoza found himself getting involved with a cat casually at first, as most of us do. But soon after that first sandpapery, whiskery kiss, Mendoza was hooked. He’d become not only a feline fancier, but was intrigued by pets of all kinds, and particularly by their relationships with people.

Eastman Kodak has become the first company to demonstrate and commit itself to an 8-mm video camera/recorder system, called Kodavision series 2000. Actually, it includes two camcorders (video cameras plus recorders): the 2200 and its autofocusing sister model 2400. Each weighs 2.2 kg (about 5 lb.) and measures 364× 184× 187 mm.

The P518C is the smallest of the four flash units covered here. Powered by two AA batteries, it offers manual and a single automatic f-stop (f/4 to a maximum autoworking distance of 15 ft. with ISO 100 film). On the back, the film-speed scale has settings of 25, 50, 100, 200, and 400; unfortunately, it (or any of the other three units checked out in this report) has no provision for the new ISO 1,000 films.

Being a tourist means seeing and doing new things in a place that isn’t home. Sometimes it seems almost obligatory to take in certain sights—in London, the famous Tower, the Houses of Parliament—and one feels apologetic if one hasn’t. On the other hand, there are places to discover on one’s own that, like the requisite tourist attractions, give a sense of a city’s past, present or, ideally, both.

What is the most depth of field I can get with a 28-mm lens for my 35mm camera that stops down to f/22? The depth-of-field scale is no help. When I set the lens for maximum depth of field at f/22, I can't read the near depth because the aperture number falls off the scale.
