1st ($300) Buddhist delight: It’s not only the monks who are beaming; this perfectly executed image lit up our entire staff! Wu Xue-hua of Shanghai, China, was in Beijing when he captured this tightly huddled group of Tibetan lamas clamoring with obvious enthusiasm around the monk who was listening to his personal stereo.

Mexico has always offered many images to the lens—steeped in culture, mired in poverty, ripe for revolution, a haven for expatriots. Homage to all these faces is seen in three traveling exhibitions that reveal the old and new of photography in Mexico.

What did Super Bowl XXX and the Democratic and Republican conventions in '96 have in common? Somebody’s going to win, and somebody’s going to lose, is the obvious answer. But for the Associated Press, both football and politics were part of a major milestone in photography: AP staff photojournalists covered these events without shooting a single frame of film.

It’s not often that a photographer’s personal study becomes a treasured possession of two heads of state on opposite sides of the globe, but Joe Marvullo has achieved just such a coup. The New York-based pro and occasional POP contributor originally created the still life, “Sax & Stripes Forever,” shortly after President Bill Clinton’s first inaugural to mark the occasion of a fellow saxman achieving the status of ultimate Leader of the Band.

Have an older manual-focus SLR that’s doing fine for you? Keep it.

Herbert Keppler
If you buy a new lens and find it isn’t delivering the focal length(s) as marked, do you return it and get your money back? Don’t. The truth is that practically no lens you buy, single focal length or zoom, from Leitz, Zeiss, Canon, Nikon, etc., delivers exactly the focal length marked.

Ah, how superlatives are fleeting. No sooner had Samsung announced the longest-tele zoom (145mm) on a non-reflex point-and-shoot than Pentax upped the ante with a zoom to 160mm. No matter. As that commercial from the bad old days went, it’s not how long you make it, it’s how you make it long.

Trails of fine dust linger over the line of pilgrims making their way on horseback and on foot through the desolate sea of sand surrounding Mount Bromo. The narrow steps leading to the rim of the volcano are choked with worshipers carrying food and livestock to the summit.

Peter Kolonia
The Bronica SQ-Basic (SQ-B) is a trimmed-down, scaled-back, simplebut-solid SLR that has recently joined Bronica’s SQ line of leaf-shutter-lens 2¼-inch square-format cameras. In keeping with Bronica’s price-minded tradition, the SQ-B enters the marketplace as one of the lowest-cost, ready-to-shoot, 2¼×2¼ SLRs in medium-format photography.

Like most of our cover shots of 50 years ago, this nice March '47 formal portrait of Lois Carendi was made in a studio with a large-format camera. It was taken by one of our own, then Eastern Editor, later Editor-in-Chief, Bruce Downes, who gave details of the fivelight setup he crammed into his “tiny basement home studio.”

The sparkling silhouette on our March '72 cover was taken by Peter Millan "at f/16 and 1/1000 sec to kill detail,” but we gave no data on camera, lens, or film used. At the time, Millan often shot with an Alpa SLR on Kodachrome II. This issue contained a goodly number of great picture features, including offbeat images by Leonard Soned, expressive distortions by Vincent Jermolowitz, a photo tribute to Morris Gordon, and a timeless portfolio of Edward Weston originals printed by his son Cole.

Steve Sint
With all the hoopla about digital imaging, it’s easy to forget that the vast majority of pros and serious amateurs still rely on silver imaging for their photographic deeds. With that in mind, I’d like to shift focus from digital-oriented products, and turn to a number of interesting innovations designed with (primarily) the silverhalide shooter in mind.

If you’re like most of us, what really turns you on about photography is taking your own pictures. But there’s another side to photography’s silverhalide coin: picture collecting. It offers the joy of looking at and owning fascinating photos, the thrill of hunting for them—and perhaps even finding great ones—and the chance that low-priced prints bought today may skyrocket in value tomorrow.

Dan Richards
The near-far trick: Dykinga used a superwide-angle lens (a 75mm f/4.5 Nikkor-SW) to take in a dominant foreground bristlecone pine played against a background of more pines. Shot in an Arca-Swiss FC 4×5 on a Gitzo tripod with Arca ballhead, using Fujichrome Velvia (rated 40) at f/32 for 3 sec, with Tiffen 812 filter (equivalent to an 81A warming) to take out the coolness of high-altitude dawn in Inyo National Forest, CA.

“APS, who needs it?” This has been the somewhat unfriendly pro and serious-amateur greeting for the Advanced Photo System since its introduction nearly a year ago. Previous Kodak attempts at new camera and film systems, such as 126 Kodapak, 110 Pocket Instamatic, or disc, hadn’t really ruffled an enthusiast or pro feather.

All our jokes about the horrible Holga (a primitive plastic rollfilm camera) aside, there is a very valid reason to use such crude cameras: their very limitations leave you to concentrate on the fundamental human component of photography: seeing.

How can professional photographers help save the world’s endangered national monuments? By taking pictures of them, holding charity exhibitions, and selling the photos. That’s what the Japanese photographer’s group Hachiku (meaning eightynine—the number of members) has been doing for Cambodia’s ancient Angkor Wat temples since 1991.

Okay, for all those who felt our first APS vs. 35mm test (August '96, page 74) was more an analysis of new APS film vs. old 35mm film technology, we now have production APS cameras and the newest technology films. Actually we were well aware, even before we shot the previous test pictures, that our analysis wasn’t destined to be the final word on this intriguing subject.

Hands on: Surprisingly compact, but weighty, sturdy, and very well made lens with satin black finish. Admirably broad, grippable and rubberized rotating zooming and focusing rings are unusually smooth operating. Lens does rotate during focusing.

Hands on: Relatively compact and quite light for its class; balances well even on lightweight SLR bodies, but lack of a tripod collar could strain tripod socket of camera. Nicely finished in black and satin cream color for a “white lens” look.

The large-format view camera (and its rustic cousin, the flatbed field camera) remain the standard rigs of commercial, studio, landscape, and fine-art photography to this day. Why? It’s more than the big, beautiful 4×5 (and 5×7 and 8×10) negs and chromes produced in these cameras.

Lifesaving litestand
$76
Studio photographers often lose a modeling lamp lightbulb, or worse, a strobe lamp, when a section of light stand gives way, causing a delicate flash head to drop a few inches to a jarring stop. If this has happened to you, you know the potential value of Photoflex’s new Airshocked Litestand. Each of its sections uses pneumatic damping to cushion descent and prevent sudden drops. Result? Fewer premature bulb burnouts or other, more serious electrical problems. Other Air-shocked features include an extra wide base (approx. 44 inches) and heavy-gauge (A380), one-inch diameter aluminum tubing for stability. Fully-expanded sizes range from eight to thirteen feet, with prices from $76 to $130. (Photoflex, 333 Encinal St., Santa Cruz, CA 95060; 800-486-2674.)

More and more contemporary, black-and-white photographers are working in markedly noncontemporary printing processes. Fotospeed is meeting the trend head-on with a new series of alternate-process kits. The first off the assembly line has an $80 price tag and includes all the paper, film, sensitizer, and instructions required to produce thirty brownish-toned 8×10 argyrotypes (r-JYE-ro-types), a newly-developed, more stable version of the original VanDyke/Brown process. Future kits are promised covering the cyanotype, gum bichromate, palladium, bromoil, and platinum processes. (Luminos, P.O. Box 158, Yonkers, NY 10705; 800-LUMINOS.)

Pocket pictures
Here’s a new take on tee shirts: Instead of a conventional pocket, the Photo Jack Tec features a pocket of clear nylon that makes an excellent display frame for a 4×6 photograph. You can become your own mobile gallery, and mount a constantly changing, one-person photo exhibit showcasing you, your loved ones, or any (vertical) photography worthy of such a distinguished venue. The shirts come in a variety of styles, some with colorful frames, text, or artwork surrounding the nylon pocket. (Blackjack Inc., 35426 Mound Road, Sterling Heights, MI 48310.)

Righto! After decades of floppy canvas, Domke’s new J-Series “Shooter” bags (from $179.95) feature firm walls of closed-cell foam, in addition to outer and inner linings of waterproof ballistic nylon. Additional innovations include outer pockets with handy removable padded inserts, rubber treads underneath to protect against soil and moisture, and a new style of removable, selfcontained padded insert that can be fully customized. The bags’ interiors are wall-to-wall Velcro (the soft loops) for unlimited positioning options. (The Saunders Group, 21 Jet View Dr., Rochester, NY 14624-4996.)

Card game
$1.39
Next time a friend gushes that your photos are good enough for greeting cards, gush back with an order form: sell him a box of greeting cards bearing your photos! Photographer’s Edge carries an extended line of products to get you up and running in the greeting card, postcard, bookmark, or photo-magnet business. The note cards have precut windows for 4×6 photos, and are printed with dozens of marketable slogans for all seasons and reasons (envelopes included). Prices vary depending on order size, but a single, printed card costs $1.39. Also available are custom-printed messages, cleartopped boxes to hold 12 of your cards ($1.25), wire display racks ($50), and gold markers ($4) to sign your line of customized greeting cards. Hallmark, watch out! (Photographer’s Edge, 4763 N. Carefree Circle, Colorado Springs, CO 80917; 800-550-9254.)

$250
Desktop publishers using the Kodak DC-50, Chinon ES-3000, and similar digital cameras to handle traditional photo chores, may be pleased to discover that, for about $250, their camera can now be used as a scanner. The Raynox Digital Macro Explorer Close-up System (DCR2000) is a mini copystand and closeup filter set that allows macro digitization of small objects, prints, or—with the supplied lightbox— slides. Suited to stamp collectors, jewelry makers, and others who work with images of tiny objects, the Raynox system comes with two closeup filters (1:1 and 1:1.5 magnification), and there’s a third (optional) filter, model No. 1015, that allows 1:4

The latest Bogen/Manfrotto monopod accessory combines the convenience of a monopod and the support of a tripod. Called the Monopod Support ($60), it’s a simple aluminum yoke with a built-in, mini ballhead that can be attached to any monopod whose head is removable. Once in place, the support lets you make longer exposures for which a tripod is usually required, yet you’re toting only a monopod into the field. Nice! (Bogen Photo Corp., 56.5 E. Crescent Ave., Ramsey, NJ 07446-0506.)

You wouldn’t let your six-year-old use your megadollar, multi-buttoned camcorder, right? But would you encourage that movie-making urge if the device were a $100 made-for-kids video camera? Tyco VideoCam is a real camera, not a toy, that records a black-and-white image using a low-cost CMOS sensing chip. Note that it’s a camera, not a camcorder, which contributes to its light weight (15.2 oz. with four AA batteries). Parents plug the camera’s 23-foot audio/video cable into a VCR, push the record button, and the junior videographer just points the camera at any subject between 3 and 30 feet away. The viewfinder is optical; the lens is a fixed-focus, 7.4mm f/2, allowing a minimum illumination level of about 5 lux; and the microphone is omnidirectional. Designed for sixto ten-year-old kids, the camera comes with a tabletop tripod plus carrying case, and it may be used with an optional AC power adapter. (Tyco Toys, Inc., 6000 Midlantic Dr., Mount Laurel, NJ 08054.)

Suncatcher, the company specializing in lowtech, low-cost darkroom appliances, offers something for do-it-yourself color technicians on a budget: The Chemical Water Bath Heating Unit. At $34.95 it’s among the lowest-price temperature-control units, and is well-suited to the humble application of keeping a small tempering bath hot. With the large, topmounted dial, you can select temperatures from 65 to 120 degrees F; its built-in thermostat turns the heating element on and off as needed, and the element’s on/off status is indicated by a small LED. The unit’s clip lets you clamp it securely to the side of tray or tank. (S.A.S.E. to The Suncatcher Co., 1324 Shepherd St., Sturgis, SD 57785.)
