I just received my copy of the April issue of POP PHOTO, but while reading the fascinating article on nature photography by Tim Fitzharris (page 44), I was baffled to read that he used a “Horseman View Camera Convertor for my Pentax 645” Wow! Is that similar to the Jaguar E-type converter I use on my Volkswagen Beetle?

While rival film manufacturers Agfa, Fuji, Kodak, Konica and Ferrania (producers of Imation) fight furiously to win our film-buying favors, they can, when the mood strikes—and it's to their advantage—make nice, nice with each other. It's happened! And we'll all benefit from it.

American-born, Italy-based Roberto Santo Peak, who was commissioned by the Post Office to create the very popular (and self-sticking) 2001 flower series.

It’s been a long time since a photo project of truly epic proportions has come along. We think the statistics posted by the M.I.L.K. (Moments of Intimacy, Laughter, and Kinship) worldwide photo competition are pretty impressive: More than 17,000 amateur and professional photographers from 164 countries submitted 40,000 photographs to the M.I.L.K. competition, which was held over the course of 1999.

Did you shed a tear upon hearing that Kodak’s venerable Kodachrome 25 got the ax? Why? The history of Kodachrome is a long line of slow films being displaced by faster ones. The first, introduced in 1936, was an ASA 8. Between then and 1974, when today’s K25 was introduced, the film was continually upgraded by tweaks and bounds.

1st ($300) Man on the span: The big snowstorm hit the Big Apple the last day of 2000. Gui Mou Wen was at home in Brooklyn when the snow started falling and inspiration struck. With his photographic gear in tow, he sauntered out into the elements, rode the subway to the Brooklyn Bridge, then started trudging across the span.

We SLR users never had it so good. Pushing aside the usual gaggle of gripers who always squawk that cameras today are overladen with too much automation and not enough good old precision quality, it’s time to check on just how much we’ve gained in the last quarter century.

If a son of poor Sicilian immigrants, growing up in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen during the early 1920s, opened a Chinese fortune cookie and read “you will be a U.S. Army counterintelligence agent and receive the British Empire Medal from the King of England,” nobody would have believed it.

There’s no city as photogenic as Venice—not a car in sight, no overhead wires, and clear Adriatic-swept air providing mirror-perfect reflections of every bridge, house, and palazzo along miles of meandering canals. It’s a place of glorious sites and breathtaking details.

The T2—does anyone really need to say “Contax” anymore?—had a pretty good run. The first autofocusing “posh point-and-shoot” (and the one for which the term was coined) was in production from 1991 to 2000, a long time these days for any camera, P/S or SLR.

For generations, the shoe box full of images was the sign of the typically disorganized photographer. Now, a hard drive with digital image files scattered all over is quickly becoming the wired equivalent. In fact, since memory cards can be overwritten, digital photographers are taking more and more pictures, increasing the difficulty of separating the wheat from the chaff.

MICHAEL J. McNAMARA
Among the dozens of new digital cameras introduced each year, there always seems to be one or two that rise to the top of the heap. These are usually the models that offer the best combination of design, features, image quality, and value. For several years running, Olympus ZLR (noninterchangeable-zoom lens reflex) cameras have dominated their category by breaking resolution records and delivering great image quality, performance, and handling.

Can you believe it? These shots were taken from a kite. KAP, or Kite Aerial Photography, is a craft with a small but passionate following worldwide. And you can do it! But first, you must crawl or walk in kite photography before you can fly. Who better to take you aloft than Brooks Leffler and Craig Wilson, longtime KAPers and former editors of the journal The Aerial Eye?

Sadly, few manufacturers are updating their battery testers to handle the new 3 and 6 volt lithium cells that more and more modern cameras are using instead of the 1.35 and 1.5 volt mercury, silver oxide and alkaline batteries that were the standard power sources for many years.

choose the right slide film for faces
People are funny about faces, and how they appear on film. You might think that an accurately rendered face is all that matters. But it’s not.
What about print film?

Mason Resnick
Neutral color and contrast should provide the “best” picture, right? But when film manufacturers surveyed their customers about skin tones, this wasn’t the case. “Too blue!” “Too pale!” “I look like a pasty-skinned ghost!” they cried. So, the film makers went back to the drawing board.

Seeing isn’t always believing—especially in color photography. You take slides of a pretty woman in the living room, and when they come back, her creamy complexion and her white blouse are orangey red. Or you photograph her under the fluorescent lights in the kitchen, and she and everything else is tinged with a yucky yellowish green in your slides.

In color film, image quality rules, with convenience a close contender. The best films are getting faster, with more brilliant color, finer grain, and even, in some cases, lower prices. These recent improvements are paying off in better, sharper pictures in tough lighting conditions, increased flash ranges, better background detail in flash shots, and greater depth of field in good light.

Hands on: Average in length, but heavier and wider than average for a 24—85mm lens due to its f/2.8—4 aperture. Very well finished in semi-crinkle black, with legible silver focal length and metric distance numerals. Footages in easy-to-see yellow.

Oh baby, what a cutie pie! Our irrepressible July ’51 cover girl was photographed by noted commercial photographer Leo Aarons of New York City, who used an 8×10 Ansco View Camera with an 18-inch f/9 Zeiss Apo Tessar lens to record the tot’s priceless expression with consummate technical quality.

What causes turning propeller blades to appear curved in a photograph? This is apparent when shutter speeds are too slow to freeze the propeller motion, but fast enough to capture less than one revolution. In many images I’ve seen, such as this one of a three-bladed Grumman Goose (from the International Encyclopedia of Aviation, page 306), some of the blades appear impossibly bent, while the others don’t appear to be distorted at all.

Round 1: Miller comes into the ring and sets up with conventional large-format studio gear: Horseman LXC 4×5 view camera, taking a solid stance on a studio stand, with an extra-wide-angle 90mm f/4.5 Nikkor-SW lens. He aims a White Lightning Ultra 1800 directly at the boxer—but he softens the blow with a Plume Wafter 140 softbox.
