[font color=\'#000000\']Yes, Jan, but I've found myself becoming more and more disappointed in the contents, both in length and substance, of the past dozen issues of View Camera.
I have a totally unscientific perception that when Steve Simmons, the publisher and editorial director, decided to add Camera Arts to his repertoire, he took on a lot more than one man can reasonably handle, even with the obviously competent staff he has assembled to assist him. It 'feels' as if a diffusion of creative talent has resulted, at least as far as View Camera is concerned. Camera Arts is clearly edging out View Camera as the generally better quality publication.
However, I'm going to give both magazines at least one more year of support. Of the genre, they're still high up enough to warrant coninued support, and in this age of declining editorial quality in photography publications, one must go with what is 'out there', mustn't one.
