We all would like to thank you for such a wonderful article about "Bulb" in your March `89 issue. We read it in our class and spent a lot of time discussing it. We were so interested that we tried it. This is what we did. We put the camera on a tripod and set it on f12.8 at B.

Popular music, film, and television all showcase a wealth of teenage talent. But we never seem to hear of the accolades given young photographers. Bill Morong. a 16-year-old high-school student, wanted to change all that. Frustrated at not being taken seriously by publishers because of his age.

Don't let bad camere karma get in the way of exciting pictures
Death cult in Toraja

Lisl Dennis
Even professional photographers can have a bout with bad camera karma. On a recent trip to Indonesia, I was faced with not one, but two broken cameras and a temporary shortage of film. Nevertheless, I managed to overcome these obstacles and come away with wonderful shots of the natives, markets, and festivals in this dreamlike country.

Dan Richards
The rumors were flying: What technological wizardry was Kodak about to unveil? Everyone expected there would be new and improved color-print films, but what else? Perhaps a group of pocketable autofocus 35s keyed to take Ektar 25 film? Well, our crystal ball was pretty clear regarding the film-there was, indeed, a new medium-speed Ektar aimed at serious photographers, plus improved and faster Kodacolor Gold materials (see our story on page 46).

John Shaw
Nature photography often demands that you carry camera and related equipment long distances over rough terrain, but first it's necessary to transport your gear to your general destination or base. Just as you might use a variety of lenses in different situations, you'll probably end up owning several bags to cover your needs for general and specific hauling.

Evidently my July `88 ruminations about a possible 35mm half-frame renaissance were premature. Although Kyocera/Yashica soldiers on with its Samurai duo and Canon's Sure Shot Multi Tele continues to offer a seldom-used 18 x 24-mm format option.

So you thought zoom lenses always stay in focus as you zoom, eh? Well, they don't!
Sharp at wide-angle, unsharp at tele. Is the zoom defective?
Why tele autofocus is more precise than wide-angle
Autofocus, okay for wide-angle, isn't good enough for telephoto

Herbert Keppler
You focus (or autofocus) your SLR on a subject. but then decide to zoom in to a greater focal length. Carefully, without shifting focus, you operate the zoom control until you have the new compositional framing you want. But wait a minute. Horrors! The subject is out of focus.

KODAK STRIKES BACK
The cosmic clash of emulsion empires continues with a three-pronged, yellow-box salvo aimed straight at starship Fuji's finest films! Who's winning? It's getting harder than ever to tell, but here's the latest score.

Jason Schneider
Anyone who needed proof that the colossal struggle between the world's two top film titans is still white hot should have attended Kodak's latest press conference. In one fell swoop, the wizards of Rochester announced two remarkable special-purpose disposable cameras (see complete story on page 26), both clearly aimed at blunting Fuji's success in this area; and a trio of improved color-print films, all claimed to provide measurably better performance than their leading competitors (which just happen to come in green boxes).

Eaton S. Lothrop
Why is Mickey Mouse so popular? Is it the cute little nose and lollipop ears? Or is it that he was one of the first recognized stars of the silver screen? In any case, it would take more than camera buffs like ourselves to account for the popularity of Walt Disney's redoubtable rodent, but popular he is.

Some of the latest camcorders are festooned with fabulous features: the ability to make posterized images, stereo sound, 12:1 zoom ranges, shutter speeds faster than a hummingbird's wings. Wow! But how essential are they when all you want to do is make good movies-easily?

It's been a long time coming. After more than a year and nearly one half million dollars, we can finally bring you a level of photographic equipment testing beyond anything previously in existence. A few of our tests, such as shutterspeed testing, can be accomplished with somewhat "standard" instruments, but many of our tests require extensive modification to the instruments, while others are unique.

Only the human eye focuses faster, but how long does your AF SLR take to trip the shutter?

Delay comes after focusing
Old-time rangefinder lore
Not in the instruction manual
[no value]
[no value]
Bob Schwalberg
You press the button and the picture is exposed some time later—maybe not a lot of time later, but after a measurable, appreciable interval that may have a longer duration than the shutter speed you're using. This delay is sometimes called time parallax, the difference between what you saw through the viewfinder and what was actually recorded on the film.
