Having just visited the EOS Magazine web site, its a mess, I am presuming its undergoing an upgrade, unless its my browser. Hope their magazine is better.

brucea,

The repetitive content is a feature of every magazine I've ever seen, whatever the subject. As a sailing instructor I have long since given up buying sailing mags because every couple of years they start repeating themselves. For news, the internet or friends keep me up to speed.

Photoplus and Photo pro mags for me.

The one thing i don't like about photoplus is that half the mag is all about Post production.

A while ago I subscribed to Practical Photography (the subscription offer included a Lowepro \mini Trekker which if bought separately was worth the same as the subscription itself) which was good for a while and also Digital Photo which was the sister mag of Practical Photography. They are both good but, as others have said, they get repetetive after about a year so I didn't renew the subs.

Amateur Photographer is quite good as that has a decent amount of news (although a good chunk of ads in the back). DSLR User is also quite good I have found.

I now only regularly read the Pro mags - Professional Photographer and Photo Pro as they are more geared to the kind of stuff that interests me.

I have started reading Outdoor Photographer as it not only deals with camera and lens issues but deals with almost everything someone shooting outdoors needs to think about ie daypacks (with enough room for camera/food/waterproof​s/maps etc), waterproofs, tripods, locations etc.

I just picked up a copy of DSLR Photography (UK) and was really impressed. Lots of info on technique as well as gear and inspiration and interviews, loads of pages and is no more expensive than the others.
That's what I think I'll stick with now.

As a natural cheapskate, I read Amateur Photographer each week in my local library, then if its got anything I want to read more thoroughly, or maybe want to study, then I buy a copy.

Like Suzy, my second choice is the EOS magazine.

Like all special interest magazines the world over, they start repeating themselves after a couple of years. Thats boring for us, but the magazine has a fresh audience by then.

Thought I was the only one who read that one over here :) But I've stopped subscribing to it as they do tend to concentrate only on the latest EOS gear, and previous models are quickly forgotten. Also, any of the shops, seminars, great places to shoot are all in the UK. I did like their article on Canon's repair facility over there, walk in drop the camera off and they call or text you on your cell when it's ready.

I subscribe to Photo Plus which is Canon content exclusively, Digital Photo, Digital Camera and Photoshop user. I like getting several different viewpoints on equipment so I can make a wise decision. A lot of this info is online but I have always been a magazine reading addict.


Canon 60D,18-55mm,55-250mm,50mm compact macro, AF ext tubes. Sigma 8-16mm uwa, 18-250mm, 85mm F1.4, 150-500mm

My fave at the moment is Digital Photo Plus (canon), though I think it is a bit lightweight for the price, and as one poster puts it on here, it is a bit repetitive and a bit annoying, maybe it is time I read another magazine myself

Thanks for all that info! I'll have a look out for those. Funnily enough I found DSLR Photography at Birmingham airport the other week just before flying out to do some filming in the desert! Seems a good way to find mags ;)

Content wise I'm after everything really, I love to see additions by pro photogs as well as readers, plenty of tutorials and I like to read up on gear reviews and tests and buying guides. DSLR Photography seems to have a good balance of all these things.

If you can get it the Australian "Better Digital" magazine is tops...more reading, less ads, good quality stuff.
I also buy the odd Outdoor Photography.

As an avid UK consumer of magazines (spend a lot of time travelling about), I've found that Photoplus is a little simple and tends to repeat a lot of the same stuff on a few month cycle. It's not a bad mag. just a fairly simple instructional read.
On the other hand Professional Photographer is one of the few mags that I read cover to cover. It has a few 'how-tos' like the others and is always interesting - I certainly don't think it is restricted to full -time pros... as I am not one, but it does give to tips on selling your stuff, and marketing yourself well etc.
