Designing specific films for specific subjects is not an uncommon practice in the Far East. Two such color negative entries are Konica’s pink-hued "baby film" ("Snapshots," April '90, page 10) and Fujicolor HG Professional, which Fuji informally calls the "wedding film."

J.S. This picture successfully violates the rule that a picture needs a primary subject. There are obviously two elements playing off each other: the extraordinary colors of the pastels below and the deep greens and browns above, with the steam or vapor separating the picture into two distinct planes very nicely.

Seven or eight years ago, as autofocus emerged over the horizon of 35mm photography, many nature photographers called it a slow and noisy gimmick. But now, almost a decade into it, this Age of Autofocus is gaining more and more nature photographers as converts, and talk of gimmicks has faded.

Grab yourself a cuppa and have a giday planning a photo trek of spectacular N. Zed

Dan Richards
I never fully trust travel guides, but there is one with just about the best three-word description of New Zealand: "nature’s improbable masterpiece." Indeed. Where else do you find two glaciers moving through rain forests, a city full of belching geysers, and the mountains that Edmund Hillary practiced on to make climbing Everest a piece of cake?

Two high-end, Hi8 camcorders from Canon: expensive, but well worth it
Creating digital effects

Elinor H. Stecker
In my lexicon, "Al" means super great, and that seems to be an appropriate way to describe the Canon Al Digital camcorder. But then we'd have to find another superlative for the Canon Ll. Both of these Hi8 camcorders are dream machines for video photographers who are annoyed by the constraints most camcorders impose on exposure, sound-recording level, and white-balance settings.

New era in Pentax autofocus SLRs begins with PZ-10
MOST EXCITING NEW PENTAX PZ-10 FEATURES

Herbert Keppler
In case you hadn't noticed, almost all of today's 35mm SLRs are very different in construction, finish, and features from the cameras of 10 and 20 years ago. It isn't just the addition of zoom lenses, electronics, dedicated and through-the-lens flash, program exposure, autoload, autowind and rewind, autofocus, and the like that distinguish the present breed from what went before.

A look at Kodak's new ISO 64 slide film: What's the "X" in EPX?

George Schaub
Get out your scorecards, folks—here comes another slide film in the medium-slow speed class. Dubbed Ektachrome 64X (EPX), this new professional ISO 64 film from Kodak is touted as having a warmer color balance than Ektachrome 64 (EPR). According to Kodak, EPX is optimized for shooting outdoors—at midday, on overcast days, and in the snow.

What does a leading avionics company do when the war's over? It builds twin-lens reflexes!

Jason Schneider
when my longtime camera-collecting buddy, Fred Spira, called to tell me he had snagged the only Bendix twin-lens reflex in captivity, I confess I snickered uncontrollably. The only Bendix twin-lens device I could envision was a commercial washing machine and dryer, an authentic industrial icon familiar to any middleaged, middle-class American who schlepped dirty laundry to the laundromat in the late pre-home-washing-appliance age.

When the innovative engineers at Salthill Photographic Instruments sat down to create a darkroom safelight, true to form, they came up with a product like no other: photography's first designer safelight. Abandoning old-fashioned tungsten bulbs and colored filters, Salthill replaced them with a thin, fade-proof 2×8-inch electroluminescent panel from the future.

Call me brainwashed by the media, but what did I think when I looked at your photo of "Henri Cartier-Bresson's charming image of an impromptu picnic in France in 1938" ["Uncommonly Normal," May '91, page 35]? Hey, those folks probably have high cholesterol—they are all pretty pudgy— and what are they going to do with all of their trash from that picnic?

In April, 1989, I went to the Philippines to begin coverage for the story National Geographic was preparing on the one-time fleet of merchant sailing vessels that connected the Spanish colony of the Philippines with far-off Mexico and eventually Madrid ("Track of the Manila Galleons," Sept. '90).
