Remember Arnold Newman, hailed as the Father of Environmental Portraiture, whose memorable studies of Stravinsky, Warhol, and Asimov graced our “How to Photograph People” picture section last month? Well, he's now the focus of a major show at the National Portrait Gallery (Smithsonian Institution, F St. at 8th, NW, Washington, DC 20560), opening on the 15th of this month.

M.M. I'm wondering what the point of this photograph is. I don’t find anything spectacular about it other than the sky and the lighting on the tower. Having seen a lot of Ferris wheels, this one doesn't do anything for me. There are no people on it, there is nothing going on.

The superquiet Konica bombshell
Does your SLR have P/S envy?
Kodak's long and fast Fun Saver
[no value]
[no value]
Dan Richards
It’s not often that we’re at a loss for words, but Konica’s latest “point-and-shoot” leaves us grasping for an adequate description. The Hexar is a point-andshoot only insofar as it’s a noninterchangeable-lens autofocus compact. But it’s also a die-cast metal, incredibly silent, multimode automatic with dual meter patterns, manual overrides, a sevenelement 35mm f/2 lens, exposure compensation, autoparallax compensation, and some other features never— but never—seen on any other camera, SLR or compact.

Herbert Keppler
Buying a top-line autofocus SLR can be a very perplexing business. To my mind there isn't one that has all the helpful features it ought, yet each feature does exist on some autofocus SLR model. Herewith my wish list of features available on one camera or another that I’d like to see combined in one camera.

A Penchant for Polar Bears
Presenting yet another in our occasional series of successful photographers with single photographic obsessions.
[no value]
[no value]
Downs Matthews
in 60 years as a photographer and biologist. Dr. Dan Guravich has never found a subject more compelling than that Lord of the Far North, the polar bear. Forty-six trips to the Arctic taken over the past 23 years have enabled this Canadian-born resident of Greenville, MS, to accumulate a stock file of more than 35,000 slides of his favorite animal.

What's the greatest user-collectible SLR of all time? Hint: It begins with an "N" and these days it's almost a bargain.
F is for foibles?

Jason Schneider
Although I have boundless empathy for anyone afflicted with camera-collecting dementia and can easily sympathize with lens-cap lovers, folding-Kodak fanatics, and even instruction-book hoarders, I have one perennial peeve. I can’t stand collectors who consign perfectly usable classic cameras to closet, vault, or showcase and never run film through the poor benighted things.

teles & zooms
Teles or zoom lenses? Most pros say you need both, depending on the picture possibilities.
[no value]
[no value]
Herbert Keppler
Despite the loyal but ever-dwindling coterie of 50mm single focal length aficionados, the photo world leans more and more toward zooms. The majority of SLRs today are sold with a 28-70mm, 35105mm, or some similar all-purpose zoom. The days when an amateur’s or pro’s prowess was measured by how well he could shoot murky, low-light subjects handheld at 1/4 sec and f/1.4 have by and large faded into the past.

Popular Photography's 1992 35MM ZOOM LENS DIRECTORY
Looking for a zoom lens? Here’s where to start: We’ve got sizes, prices, mounts, special features, and much, much more.

Pete Kolonia
What’s happening in zoom lenses? For one thing, there are more than ever. This year's Directory has added 27 new zooms, not including the new listings of Promaster and Quantaray optics mentioned below. Most of the newcomers are autofocusing lenses, proof (if we needed it) that camera and lens manufacturers are still filling in the optical niches that exist in their relatively young lineups of autofoeusing glassware.

Hands on: Large and rather heavy as expected for a long, very fast tele with metal barrel, but balances nicely on camera with built-in rotatable, lockable tripod platform with orientation click stops at 90-degree intervals. Very well finished in textured black (at rear) and satin black (at front).

The Editors
While not exactly the Winter CES of our discontent, the sluggish economy definitely put a brake on the pace of technological expansion, with many in the electronics industry content to enhance existing product lines or fill competitive niches.

OK, OK. We know, one, that this looks ridiculous and, two, that the jokes will be flying fast and furious. But for anyone who’s ever tried to photograph through glass windows or doors, Morton H. Pechter’s idea will sound perfectly fine. The problem with photographing through glass is that you get reflections all over the place.
