View Camera Magazine
“VIEWCAMERA® is a bi-monthly publication that began in 1988, and is specifically aimed toward the large format photographer. Each issue provides in-depth interviews with portfolios by respected photographers, new and used equipment reviews, workshop listings, and articles providing technical information for the large format photographer that cannot be found in any other publication. In addition, we have many regular features in each issue including Product Review, Working With a Master, and The Black-and-White Corner.”
Duane Polcou discusses why View Camera Magazine is the best magazine of its kind. Check it out at viewcamera.com.

What makes this publication unique is that each issue is devoted to a single topic, enabling you to make the most of your digital camera and shoot like a pro.”

“Ilfochrome (formerly known as Cibachrome) is a dye destruction positive-to-positive photographic process used for the reproduction of slides on photographic paper. The prints are made on a dimensionally stable polyester base, essentially a plastic base opposed to traditional paper base. Since it uses azo dyes on a polyester base, the print will not fade, discolor, or deteriorate for a long time. Characteristics of Ilfochrome prints are image clarity, color purity, as well as being an archival process able to produce critical accuracy to the original slide.”
Duane also discusses Cloneachrome in NYC. Cloneachrome still going strong at cloneachrome.com.

Polaroid Talking Camera
“Designed for Polaroid’s 600-series integral film, the 636 Talking Camera has a unique gimmick. Along with a couple of pre-recorded messages, the camera can also be used to record speech (or music) which is played via a loudspeaker just before firing of the shutter.”
Processing Black and White Film at Home
Duane discusses the process of pre-soaking your film before developing.
“An anti-halation backing is a layer found in modern photographic films. It is placed between the light-sensitive emulsion and the tough film base, or sometimes on the back of the film base. The light that passes through the emulsion and the base is absorbed by the opaque anti-halation layer. This keeps that light from reflecting off the pressure plate or anything else behind the film and re-exposing the emulsion, reducing contrast.”
