Default Is EOS Magazine good ? any others ?

I just visited the Eos magzine home by accident & may order it.
Are there any forum members subscribing it ?
Is it really good/helpful on shooting tips etc ?

I was basiaclly looking for some photography magzine which I could go through, mainly while commuting, utilizing my time more effectively

Thumbs up Re: Is EOS Magazine good ? any others ?

I subscribed to the EOS magzine, that is how I found the forum …they emailed me to let me know when it was first up and running.
The magazine comes with a past issue and after reading through them I decided to order 2 back issues with articles on my camera. The magazine is informative and interesting and of a different format to the usual magazines available in the high street. I will give it a thumbs up.

It is for film and digital, so you will find some spectacular pictures done in both. New products are reviewed and/or compared to older models. Just recently there was an introduction to the 430EX and how it measures up to the other flashes. Very informative. That's why I like it. They have informative articles that are quite useful to any level of photography. I've been getting it for 2 years now.

Great magazine that I have really enjoyed since I started to subcribe and I got a free Canon baseball cap to boot! They have some great offers, articles on how to get the best from your EOS, both digital and film, and reviews on new products. There is also a great market classified adds section.

Top read all round and I eagerly wait for the next issue.

Thanks guys.
I am amused that this thread got revived with first response almost after a week I started it Nonetheless, I appriciate your feedback & I am convinced to order my subscription now I guess it will take longer for delivery in Japan then within states, so my waiting will be longer.

Curtis, check this out.
