I recently purchased a single-lens reflex camera which, according to the advertisement, “loads its own film.” But when I placed the camera on a cleared dinner table—after putting a roll of Tri-X next to it—nothing happened. The camera refused to load itself.

If you’ll be in the market for a new SLR within the next year, chances are that it will be one of the new models with auto-focus. As you compare their features and claims, you're bound to ask, “How good are they, really, at focusing?’’ We’ve been asking that same question, and getting the same answers for years.

Because its colors are purer, the conventional additive color-filter system offers a more precise method for filtering color prints. However, since you have to make three separate exposures, it’s almost impossible to dodge and burn-in prints as easily as with the single-exposure subtractive filter system.

Photographers with active lifestyles need cameras they can take climbing, sailing, skiing, or just plain beachcombing. Until a few years ago, few options existed in "rough and ready” gear—cameras that could withstand the worst outdoor shooting conditions.

This is the season for outdoor portraiture. While famous monuments may make fine subjects for postcard images, people really want to see pictures of themselves, their friends, and fascinating strangers. Whether you're strolling down a city street or visiting a country church, the opportunities for making fine portraits are everywhere.

It’s picture time, when the livin’ is easy and the light is right. Here are some fascinating experiments and picture-taking ideas that can help make the summer of 1986 your season for photographic discovery.
2. Flash a black background:
3. Is there only one “correct” exposure?
4. Through a filter darkly:
5. Expose for the subject, or for the light:
6. Show your colors:

The camera shutter is a unique imaging mechanism that allows the photographer to freeze time, or to record its passing. Here, George Schaub used a 1/1,000-sec shutter speed (left) to stop the splashing of a waterfall, and a 1/8-sec speed (above) to transform the rushing water into glassy smoothness.

Making the move from a conventional single-lens reflex to an autofocus model is like changing from a stick shift to an automatic transmission. At first you resist, feeling that the driving experience will be diminished. Then you slowly begin to see how easy it is to get around in rush-hour traffic.

Don’t think of the N2020 as an N2000 with piggybacked autofocusing capability; instead, consider the N2000 as an N2020 without autofocus. An inside look reveals that the similar body design used for both cameras was originally designed to be an autofocus SLR.

Jade Albert specializes in children's fashion and her energetic work appears in advertising and fashion magazines here and in Europe. For the father and son shot, Albert used the S (single) autofocus mode and shot at 1/125 sec at f/11. “This is a more casual shot,” said Albert, “with the models playfully moving side to side.

Back to the Movies
Japanese camera makers have virtually abandoned home-movie equipment in favor of video. But now there’s a French revolution in super 8—the Beaulieu 7008 S sound camera.
NEW & NOTEWORTHY

Elinor H. Stecker
Home movies made with a good super-8 film camera have a look that is very different from that of video. In terms of image sharpness, tonality, and color saturation, film is simply superior. So the arrival of a new top-of-the-line super-8 movie camera, such as the Beaulieu 7008 S, is a cause for celebration—preferably with French champagne.

The misty town of Carmel, California is haunted by photographers — past, present, and yet-to-come. Edward Weston did some of his finest work there at Point Lobos. Ansel Adams chose to live in Carmel during the final years of his life; today a colony of active photographers keeps the image-making scene alive.

Centering: The center of curvature of each lens surface should lie on a common line. Contrast Test: Electronic comparison of contrast levels between the image of a coarse and a fine slit; the result is expressed as a percentage. Distortion: Barrel distortion causes straight lines in image to curve out; pincushion distortion causes lines to curve in. Does not influence sharpness, nor is it improved by stopping down.

Where are the prints of yesteryear’s advertising pictures? Like yesterday’s newspapers, most of them have vanished, except for those by a few famous names such as Edward Steichen, Nicholas Muray, and Lejaren à Hiller. The reason is obvious: Most advertising photography is throw-away stuff; its usefulness ends with each ad campaign.

When I use a 24-mm wide-angle lens plus a 52 → 55-mm step-up ring, then add a 55-mm polarizing filter, all four corners of my photos are darkened (as shown, in part, below). Is this vignetting inherent in wide-angle lenses and polarizers? Or did the step-up ring just move the polarizer far enough out to cause the problem?
