Is there still a demand for an entry-level film SLR camera? The folks at Voigtländer seem to think so, evidenced by their new VSL 43. It is very much an entry-level SLR, with a manually set (but completely battery-dependent) shutter from 1/2 sec to 1/2000 sec, flash sync at 1/60 sec, manual focusing, manual diaphragm, and manual film advance.

What's new in the stock photography business? As most photographers already know, the business of stock photography has changed dramatically in the last five years. It no longer can be supplied with photos left over from an assignment or old photos sitting in a file drawer. Stock photo sales can be a potential profit center, but only for those willing to put in the time and...

For the past 55 years what has captivated collector Thurman (Jack) Naylor about photography is just about everything. He has amassed a private collection that has extended from the pre-photography days of Chinese mirrors and the earliest daguerreotypes to a miniature digital camera used today as a spy device.

A computer system is essential to digital photography image processing and editing. Its components are a central processing unit, input devices like a keyboard and mouse, and a display/monitor. Only one of the computer's components has a significant role affecting the quality of photo images created, edited, and processed, and that is the display. To use software like...
