You can hit the high notes—and some of the low ones, too—at two multivenue photo exhibitions documenting the behind-the-scenes goings on of some of rock ‘n’ roll’s legendary performers. “Backstage” offers a glimpse into life on the road with the likes of The Who, Led Zeppelin, and Mötley Crüe.

Imagine undressing, showering, putting on sterile robes and slippers, and disinfecting your equipment, all to see...a ferret! Photographers Susan Middleton and David Littschwager endured this and more to get the images they wanted for WITNESS: The Endangered Species of North America, a pro ject to draw attention to 100 North American plants and animals in danger of extinction.

The shots are hardly the stuff of glorious nature calendars: Slightly fuzzy point-and-shoot snaps of tigers, poorly composed, nearly every one with the worst greeneye you could imagine. But these shots are as important to the preservation of tigers as any number of gorgeous coffee-table books.

Every time photographer Miles Boone steps into a camera store and looks at the boxes of Ilford enlarging paper for sale, an image of his four-year-old son comes to mind. Why? Because the tyke’s image (above) is right there on many of the boxes he sees! Miles (and six others) successfully competed in a recent picture contest sponsored by Ilford’s Ilfopro Photographers’ Association.

Easily one of the most common questions we’re asked is “What’s a good zoom point-andshoot for about XXX dollars?” Sure, it’s fun for us to report on high-ticket exotica and unobtainium-bodied cult cameras, but what most real people are looking for in a point-and-shoot is that bread-and-butter zoom, what we sometimes call the “family camera.”

Cameras that are really things other than cameras have been popular since, well, cameras were invented. There have been camera lighters, camera paperweights (and some real cameras that should have been paperweights), camera fridge magnets, and of course tons and tons of camera jewelry.

We’ve finally reached the point where that littlest of lithium canister batteries, the CR2, is generally available wherever photo stuff is sold. And lots of cameras now use them, in good part because they have allowed cameras to shrink even further.

Herbert Keppler
Can you really get good, pro results with a telextendcr these days or is it merely a moderate-cost, compact but inefficient gimmick to increase focal length while losing contrast and sharpness? First, let’s deal with terminology. Flow do teleconverters, telextenders, multipliers, and doublers differ? They don’t.

Have you noticed that desktop computers are faster— and cheaper—than ever, but photo retouching programs like Photoshop are still fetching $600-$800? That’s a bit steep for most photographers who want to dabble a bit with digital retouching.

New York-based Mitch Funk for the past quarter-century has honed a look in magazine, corporate, and stock photography that emphasizes color as a powerful graphic element. Typically, he has achieved this with the aid of filters to intensify or add color (Funk’s basic field kit of filters can number 100 or more).

The Editors
This was a pretty close contest, with opinion on “Tyke Meets Tractor” almost evenly divided on its merits. A surprising percentage of respondents saw the image as fit for a safety poster warning against kids playing around farm machinery, and most readers who reacted to this element of incipient danger cast negative votes.

announced what we believe to be the world's first and last camera-dropping story contest, complete with cash prizes for the three most engaging, true-life narratives of camera battery. Since the contest originated as an informal, spur-of-the-moment event, with no rigidly defined rules, we have adopted a loose interpretation of what constitutes a “camera-dropping story" as these winning tales of bashed, crashed, and flung photo gear painfully illustrate.

You’ve seen it happen. A snapshooter sees an interesting picture possibility. No sooner does he take the picture than other camera-carrying tyros race to the exact same spot and take exactly the same photograph. But even when shooting alone, many amateurs will unthinkingly home in on the most common vantage point, lighting, and composition that is used by others.

Conceptually and technologically, the Contax AX is an amazing machine. It is certainly the only 35mm SLR in the world that autofocuses by moving the film plane back and forth rather than using AF sensors in the body to control the focusing mechanism in the lens.

If our February '47 “après ski” cover pic looks staged, it’s probably because Hollywood pro C.A. Peterson used a 4x5 Ansco View camera and three-flashbulb setup, including a red-gelatin-covered Wabash 40 behind Liz McLean, who “had just returned from a moonlight ski excursion.”

What’s the first equipment casualty of the digital era? If you ask me, it’s the large-format camera. At recent trade outings, like last fall’s Photokina in Germany and Viscomm in New York, there were no new 8x10 cameras in sight. Indeed, you had to search to find an 8x10 camera at all, with most pro-oriented action confined to the medium-format arena.

That light above Scandinavia? It’s not the aurora borealis; it’s sparks flying from Hasselblad’s R&D department. My main story tells of recent action in medium format, and of all rollfilm camera manufacturers, probably none has been hotter than the Swedish marque, which introduced a half-dozen significant products within the last six months.

Handy as your camera’s built-in or shoe-mounted flash may be, if you want to get the least bit creative with flash lighting you have to move that flash away from the camera. The most direct way to do this is by using a sync cord. “Sync” is short for synchronizing—which, indirectly, is what a sync cord does.

Peter Krause
Ever since the 1930s, Kodak’s D-76 has been the black-and-white film developer against which all others have been compared. Introduced for use with motion picture films, D-76 has enjoyed unflagging popularity with still photographers by providing fine grain, sharpness, controllable speed, and predictable contrast, in addition to stability and reasonable cost.

I recently purchased a Canon EOS Elan IIE, and while there are advantages to the camera, there are also things that are confusing. For example, when using the portrait PIC mode, isn’t it sort of silly to have continuous motor wind—there is absolutely no movement when taking a portrait.
