As an avid wildlife photographer and member of the Caroline Raptor Center, a public corporation dedicated to protecting birds of prey, I was very impressed with the tips I received from the Downs Matthews article "Winging It" in the June '89 issue (page 42).

One day last spring, photography’s past and future collided. Using the world's oldest silver halide technology, the daguerreotype, students at the Rochester Institute of Technology produced an image and then whisked it around the world . . . electronically.

Watch out, Nikon F4. Here's Canon's answer: A professional EOS-1
MOST EXCITING NEW CANON EOS-1 FEATURES
[no value]
[no value]
Herbert Keppler
Canon’s long-expected new professional SLR, the EOS-1, is loaded with features, yet is so compact and light that amateurs will fight like the devil for the joy of owning and using it. Unlike the all-metal Nikon F4 with its traditional control dials, rings, and levers, EOS-1 controls are all electronic, and Canon has trimmed its weight by using a single die-cast metal lensmount, mirror box, and film-plane unit bonded to a fiberreinforced polycarbonate body.

Bob Schwalberg
The 150th anniversary of Daguerre-and-All-That is now being celebrated with suitable pomposity and boredom. Once again are we regaled with the wonders of backward mirror images on polished silver-coated plates, revealed by a reaction with the fumes of boiling mercury—a most deadly poison that addled the brains and shortened the lives of many of photography's untry Talbot earliest unventilated heroes.

Jason Schneider
Shooting pictures with a classic camera is somewhat akin to driving a classic car—you have to shift for yourself. But some of us have gotten so used to autofocus SLRs that we expect the lens to shift focus when we touch the shutter release and arc disappointed when it doesn’t!

Now that Panatomic-X has bitten the dust, what's a fine-grain fanatic to do? Test the Other contenders!
Panatomic-X in D-76
T-Max 100 in T-Max developer (ISO 100)
Ilford Pan F in Microphen (1:1)
Agfa APX 100 in Rodinal (1:25)

Which combo has the edge on sharpness? Your choice.
What's best for grain and contrast? Here's the story...
T-Max 100 in Microdol-X (ISO 32)

Peter Kolonia
A las, poor Panatomic-X, knew it well. That full-tone, fine-grain black-and-white standby beloved by generations of sharpness and grain-conscious photographers is getting the boot. . .a victim of progress. The Great Yellow Father in Rochester says the technologically superior T-Max 100 can do everything Pan-X could do, only better.

Nicad batteries: Important questions and some surprising answers
[no value]
[no value]
James Bailey
Why keep buying and throwing away expensive alkaline batteries when you can use rechargeable nicads over and over again? Small wonder that nicad batteries are so popular with photographers for powering electronic flash, motor drives, film winders, and many cameras that can use both types of AA- or AAA-size batteries interchangeably.

For photography there never was such a year as this: There have been nonstop tributes to the medium’s 150th anniversary ranging from posters to postage stamps, learned lectures to trivial talk shows, plus magazine articles, picture books, exhibitions, monographs, and video specials.

Traditionally, the joys of a day at the beach and 35mm photography have mixed like (tanning) oil and water. Think of it: All that corrosive saltwater and sand trying to invade and destroy your pricey SLR! You were perfectly right to leave it at home.

Just how accurate is your exposure system? The simple answers are based on complex tests.
[no value]
[no value]
Larry White
Despite all the sophisticated systems in today’s highly electronic cameras, the main purposes of any camera are to hold the film flat in the focal plane and to deliver the precise amount of light to expose the film correctly. Whether set manually by the photographer or automatically by the camera’s computer, it’s still the combination of aperture and shutter speed that determines how your film is exposed.

E.H.S.
Photographer Lichfield, for you nonjetsetters, is Patrick, Earl of Lichfield, cousin of Queen Elizabeth. Many of his subjects (uh, photo subjects) are his coRoyals, and while the level of his connections is probably higher than that of his photographic talent, don’t infer that Lichfield uses his title as a meal ticket.

Ever wish you could get a lightweight light bank without a bank loan? If you already have Lightform, Calumet. Brite White, or almost any other light-control panels, adding a Goulet XL-7 Strobeframe ($41.95) should do the trick. The Strobeframe, equipped with two light mounts, snaps onto a frame and translucent panel, allowing you to set up your strobe heads (or hot lights) to fire through the panel.

When sharpening the focus ring on my slide projector, I can get the center subject-area sharp, but the peripheral areas come out slightly fuzzy. Then if I focus on the periphery, the subject becomes fuzzy. Is that the fault of the projector?
