I would like to make 127-size film by splitting 120. I read about a machine that does this, but apparently it's not yet available in this country. James E. Lopiccolo Sharon, CT The trouble with splitting film yourself or using a machine that can split the film is that you still have the difficulty of obtaining the paper backing and spools.

Awe. Irony. Enlightenment. "Propaganda and Dreams: Photographing the 1930s in the USSR and the US" inspires these emotions and more. Check out the exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., from July 3 to October 3. The show's 200-plus photographs explore the fine line separating truth from fiction, journalism from public relations.

Many people walk the streets of their towns every day without really seeing those streets. As photographers, we're more apt to notice certain parts of the world—colors and contrast, for example—whereas an architect might first notice shape, and a clothing designer's eye might be drawn to fabrics and textures.

Your precious photos may not be famous—yet—but they can room side-by-side with the cream of the photographic crop at Hollywood Vaults, a high-tech storage facility in Los Angeles. For as little as $65 per month, you can stow precious prints, slides, etc. in climate-controlled rooms (45 degrees, 25 percent humidity) that are constantly monitored for heat, smoke, fire, flood, temperature, and humidity.

Years before Ansel Adams was even a gleam in his father's viewfinder, Carleton E. Watkins was photographing the wilds of Yosemite—the Falls, El Capitan—and other wonders of California. He became the preeminent Californian landscape photographer during the Gold Rush, shooting mammoth prints and panoramas of railroads, canals, and mountain ranges as the West grew in power and importance.

1st ($300) Fast break! It was a less-than-ideal picture-taking opportunity—little available light and an educated guess for exposure—but by utilizing her shutter smarts and later her printing expertise, Laura Sensabaugh of San Francisco was able to transcend the limitations for this wonderfully atmospheric image.

For sharpest images, do you really need mirror lockup? If so, why don't all top cameras have it?
What we learned
[no value]
[no value]
Herbert Keppler
Despite the insistence of mirror-lockup true believers, I have never been one to proclaim that this is an essential feature on all good SLRs for most photographers. The farthest out believers are positive that every picture, no matter the shutter speed, lens type, or sturdiness of the tripod, will be sharper if the rapid-return mirror is locked up, out of the way, so it can't cause vibration during exposure and thus degrade the image.

OK, what's so bad about a 38mm lens? (Nothing!)
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
Dan Richards
Just about every point-and-shoot in the whole wide world has the same focal length in common: 38mm. Whether it's a 38mm f/5.6 cheapie in a blister pack for $49, or a spiffy 38-140mm zoom model at $300, that "semiwide-angle" 38mm focal length comes standard.

This technique will come as a natural consequence of moving closer. When you move close, look for an element to place in the foreground of your shot to loom large, with the background receding in die distance. It works with all sorts of subjects: people, flowers, monuments, signs—even horses.

A good rule in any event, all the more so with the 38mm lens, which is often just a little too wide. Find the major area of interest in the photo and move in to fill the frame with it. Keep in mind that many cheapies can focus to 3 feet or so, and better point-and-shoots will get down to 14 to 18 inches.

When you move in close with your 38mm lens, you may find you can't always fill the frame with your subject. Well, for crying out loud, place your subject off center! Prefocus the camera on the important area of interest, press the shutter button partway to lock focus, then change the composition.

Yes, one of the problems with shooting faces eloseup with a wide-angle lens is the big-nose syndrome; with a face filling the frame, the exaggerated perspective turns that fabulous face into a funny face. But if you're absolutely stuck with a semiwide-angle lens, one trick you can try is to shoot the face from a different angle: in profile or three-quarter profile.

This may sound funny after we've nagged you to move closer, closer, closer. But a significant problem with semiwide-angle lenses is that "semi" part: these lenses just don't take in a wide enough view for big scenics or little rooms. But you can often squeeze a bit more picture into the frame with a little ingenuity.

From our colleague Pete Kolonia comes another tip for dealing with the big-nose syndrome in wide-angle lens portraits: don't bother getting close at all. Take a shot from 4, 5, 6 feet, then take the negative to your photofinisher for a big print.

Evergreen classics among point-and-shoots are rare. One model that proved a year-in, year-out favorite was Pentax's IQZoom 90-WR. This beefy beastie was weatherproofed to a full Class V, which meant that you could subject it to serious soaking from the elements—continued on page 29 continued from page 27 say, boat spray or champagne fizz— and then rinse it off under running water.

Herbert Keppler
There is virtually no danger that unprocessed film you carry aboard airplanes will be harmed by airport security inspection X-rays. But inspection units now in use at 50 or more U.S. airports and overseas (exact locations unknown) can and do harm the film packed in checked baggage (as we've previously reported to you and confirmed with results of damage).

Peter Kolonia
The Turbo Z is Quantum's latest rechargeable battery pack for flash, and it belongs to a generation that includes the Dyna-Lite Jackrabbit and Lumedyne Minicycler. Like its cousins, the Z, a nickel-cadmium cell, is compact—almost as small as a personal CD player—lightweight, and high-capacity, able to deliver thousands of normal (i.e., non-full-power) flash bursts per charge. With the help of customized adapter cables, the Turbo Z (street price, approximately $250) can supply power to current pro-caliber Metz, Sunpak, Olympus, Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Vivitar, and Armatar flashes.

It's twilight on the boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey, and the air is redolant with that heady aroma that could only be the Jersey Shore: a distinctive combination of salt air, caramel popcorn, and the musty smell of amusement piers. The garish neon lights of the pizza counters and game booths stand out against the royal blue sky.

Why didn't Canon include a panoramic mode in its new Canon EOS Rebel 2000? Comperitive Minoltas and Pentaxes have it. Morry Korman, Bellevue, WA While Canon has included panoramic capability on two of its EOS cameras for the Japanese market, the Japanese version of the EOS Rebel 2000 has none.

The problem with most waterproof camcorder housings? They're too ungainly to use above water. The new AquatiCam universal camcorder housing, however, addresses that typical shortcoming with compact dimensions, an overall light weight, and user-friendly controls that allow easy use when white-water rafting, kayaking, canoeing, surfing, and other drippy pursuits, including, of course, scuba diving.

Our pleasantly outdoorsy June '49 cover shot of model Nance Stilley holding a beachball was taken at Cypress Gardens in Florida by Gordon H. Lord of McGregor, Iowa. He used an 8×10 Eastman View with 12-inch f/4.5 Kodak Ektar lens, and exposed Kodak Ektachrome Daylight film for 1/10 sec at 1/16.

We've often wondered if Fujifilm U.S.A. knew quite what a monster they were unleashing on the world with Velvia slide film and Reala print film about 10 years ago. Seemingly overnight, landscapists, nature and travel photographers, still-life shooters, and many others were taking slides that dripped with deep, rich, oversaturated colors.

If you just hopped onto the color photography bandwagon, choosing a slide or print film from the nearly 100 options available might seem a daunting task. Even if you're a photo veteran armed with our film charts ("99 color films compared," page 80), it's no easy task to find a competitively priced film with just the right speed, sharpness, color balance, and contrast for shooting situation at hand.

When last we surveyed 35mm, medium-format, and some sheet films, in 1997, we noted the desire on the part of film manufacturers to improve films that were, even back then, quite good. Little did we know how much both transparency and print films would improve in just two years!

Like many outstanding creations, the Nikon F100 has a certain air of inevitability about it. It is the logical answer to Nikon fans who've admired the cutting-edge performance of the flagship Nikon F5, but have longed for something similar in a smaller, lighter, simpler, and more affordable version.

Hands on: Big brother to Tamron's 28—200mm f/3.8—5.6 AF in its construction, operation, and cosmetics, this new lens is surprisingly light, extremely compact at infinity (for such a long zoom-lens ratio), and it extends smoothly to an astonishing 7 3/16 inches at zoom.

Beautifully finished in crinkle black enamel; wide (1¼ inch) grippably textured rubberized zoom and focus rings turn with very smooth, well-damped action.

Fine art photographer Sharon Borel of West Nyack, New York, admits to having a photographic fascination with mannequins. One cloudy day, armed with four likely limbs, she made a tasteful digital arrangement outdoors, stuck her 14-year-old son Christopher's additional five in the midst, and recorded the mélange on Kodak T-Max 400 with a 35—70mm f/3.5 lens on her Nikon FM2 at about f/11 and 1/125 sec.
