One of the added enjoyments of visiting New York City’s fabulous Metropolitan Museum of Art was, in the very recent past, strolling down the broad steps outside and seeing the work of artists not yet gracing the walls of the interior. Wannabe, will be, and are artists displayed their own colorfully arrayed works for sale at reasonable prices.

1st ($300) Splendor on the pond: There is a timeless quality to this intricate but simple image. For inspiration, Nick Skrobola of Greensboro, North Carolina, had a brand new camera and a day off from work. He headed to the nearby botanical gardens to photograph old trees and rotting tree trunks with his new rig, but what caught his eye was this lone duck on the garden pond and the pattern of reflections in the water.

Herbert Keppler
With the quiet announcement that the Kiev 88 is now available with a Pentacon-type bayonet mount, the circle closes on a remarkable, largely overlooked 2¼ SLR phenomenon. Designers of the German Pentacon and Ukranian Kiev (sometimes called the Hasselnyet because it’s a knockoff of an old Hasselblad design) created a family of basic, budget-priced cameras with a common lensmount.

How do you translate the Greek prefix “photo?” It means “light,” unbelievably brilliant and clear light, vividly illuminating ancient temples with fascinating highlights and shadows, spilling seaward onto the gleaming waters of the Mediterranean and the countless picturesque islands, washing the gleaming white buildings, etching character into the faces of its friendly and lively people.

Schneider: I like the general composition; the kids are walking into the frame and leading your eye from left to right. The bad news is that the photographer took the picture on program, and as a result the background is very much out of focus and distracting.

Siegfried Matull of Danville California is an amazing man. Before becoming seriously involved in photography in '1989, this German-born adventurer worked for the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, Germany, spent two years traveling around the world on a BMW motorcycle, immigrated to California with his wife Gretel, where he first worked for a VW dealership, then as a sales manager for Euro-Drive tours, and finally landed a post as General Manager for a Mercedes-Benz dealership More recently, he ran his own travel agency, helped found a bank (The Bank of San Ramon, California), and invested profitably in real estate, which he now manages.

It had to happen. Have you noticed? Camera people now simply use the term “ELPH class” to refer to a certain type of camera owing at least some derivation from Canon’s wildly popular minicam. The earmarks: tiny (always), stylish (preferably in some eyecatchingly quirky way), using APS film, usually with a 2:1 zoom or some such, and either metal or metal-look.

Hands on: About the average size and weight for a lens of this type, it’s a good match on the Samsung SR4000 body. Well finished in satin black, with rubberized bands for the focusing ring and mounting collar providing a pleasant and secure grip.

You’ve got questions? The Montizambert brothers have answers, often punctuated with their humerons antics. The tapes explain clearly how to use a meter to get on film the tonal values you want. Volume One is devoted to metering basics, demystifying how a meter thinks, and giving you a logical plus/minus system to obtain consistently good exposures.

After staggering through a veritable tidal wave of new color films in the past six months, more than a dozen new ones recently crashed onto these shores, making this a banner year for photographers. Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida proved to be a great location for getting a closer look at these newest films in action.

The billowy clouds suddenly parted, revealing Africa’s majestic peak, Mount Kilimanjaro. At the same moment, an impressive elephant with magnificent tusks stepped from the acacia-dotted landscape, a baby at her side. Our cameras readied, we made a photograph that portrayed Africa in all its glory.

Reading about the mysterious “HELP” signal on Herbert Keppler’s Minolta 7000i (“SLR,” May ’98, page 18) brought back memories of a similar experience. A few years ago while taking some pictures at my son’s wedding I, too, found myself staring at the word “HELP” on my 7000i; unlike Mr. Keppler, I found it right there in the troubleshooting guide on page 70 of the instruction book.

WHY & HOW PROS USE ZOOMS

Don’t talk nonsense about being unable to take pictures like a pro because you don’t have similar posh zoom glass with f/2.8 apertures. While nearly every photo here was made with a 17or 20-35mm f/2.8 zoom, or an 80-200mm f/2.8, not one was shot at wider than f/4. And no pro used a technique you couldn’t.

Good news: Many photo galleries and museums are hanging their current photo exhibitions on World Wide Web sites where you can pay a visit whenever you like and for as long as you like—provided you’ve got a computer and Web access.

Herbert Keppler
Baku Saito eyed the dilemma before him with puzzlement. Two huge tower god faces of Angkor’s Bayon Temple in Cambodia were bathed in sunlight but the middle one remained a total blackout. How could he get the mysterious middle one to shine? His answer: use a reflecting surface.

When we recently spoke to Annette den Ouden, she was working an extra job late in her home city, Amsterdam. She was saving up for a trip. Not a vacation somewhere in the sun, though, or a lark around the continent. She was going on a work trip, to continue her photo documentary of peoples around the world—notably those struggling to preserve their culture, sometimes their very land, in the face of oppression.

The world is full of forgotten people. You needn’t go very far from wherever you call home to find a pocket of humanity that’s never been plugged in, that has no spokesperson, no media spotlight, no theme song. Roger Ballen for over a decade has documented a forgotten people of his adopted South Africa: the native white residents of the flat, arid rural areas called the platteland.

Samsung, it seems, is determined to be a player in the camra game—and the major leagues, at that. Not content with producing progressively more sophisticated point-andshoot models, the Korean aerospace and electronics giant has charged onto the photo industry playing field by introducing the SR4000, an all-new interchangeable-lens single-lens reflex.

He used a handheld 4x5 Speed Graphic with 6⅜inch Optar lens, made the exposure on Ektachrome at 1/50 sec and f/7.

While the most widely used photographic and consumer battery is, by a wide margin, the AA cell, other sizes are important, too. The 9-volt transistor battery is a good example. Darkroom exposure meters, radio slaves, and many other electronic devices rely on this familiar source for their power.

Tokyo, the Japanese large-format camera maker, took a good, hard look at its bestselling 4x5 field camera—the flatbed 45AII—with an eye to lowering its price. The result is the Toyo 45AX, a rugged looking, lightweight flatbed camera (5 lb, 9 oz) of aluminum alloy, but without the 45A's revolving back.

This photography learning/teaching tool is wonderfully interactive. Click on a photograph, choose an f-stop, and you’ll see how changing aperture changes the depth of field. The same with changing the shutter speed, lens focal length, film speed, or other factors.
