I have not seen a lot of posts about magazines.
Do you subscribe to any? Which ones and why one over another?
The digital world is good but I do like to read on actual paper once and a while. I tried to dogear my computer once but that didn't work out too well:rolleyes:


Gear: yeah I have some...

Since you used a descriptive title, the forum has done a mini-search for you. Look at the links at the very bottom left hand corner of this page.

IMHO the photo magazines from the UK are well worth buying. They're not cheap, around 12 dollars each but are well worth the price, to me. Never thought I'd pay that much for a magazine. I pick up "Digital Photo" and "Practical Photography" from my Barnes & Noble store. They're full of useful ideas and info instead of advertisements and come with a CD.

I like Amature Photographer which is also a UK magazine but is a weekly. It is much slimmed down from it's heydays in the 70's, but that is actually a loss more of advertising pages, not so much editorial. It's always been a very good publication, now well over 100 years old. The technical knowlege of many of the correspondents is very high, and they do treat the readers as if they also have some intelligence. So it's not all lowest common denominator simplification.


Trouble is since I now use POTN I very rarely read it anymore. They do have an online board similar to POTN but with far less traffic.

A lot of them are available online. I get www.zinio.com/ (external link) free through my local library.

Another UK recommendation:

The current iteration of Outdoor Photography is pretty good and the one I'm most likely to throw in the shopping trolley; large format and with content that isn't the repetitive trivial stuff that photo mags can sometimes churn out. (not to be confused with the US' Outdoor Photographer)

Online, I have paid subs to OnLandscape and Wild Planet Photo. I also occasionally flick through f11 magazine (free, beware some issues are NSFW)

I get shutterbug, outdoor photographer and Digital Photo Pro via sub since it's so cheap and there's always (well mostly) something interesting, I sometimes buy Rangefinder and Advanced Photographer (UK) and also CT Digital Photography, which is mostly translated things from their German magazine. Quite good and very in depth articles and a CD.
Sometimes I buy B&W and others, depending on content.

I prefer paper since I can mark it up, tear parts out and don't have to remember where I might have bookmarked them. Also easier to get rid of than rooting through miles of bookmarks.

I don't read any magazines online


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

On the other hand, you can at least keep every pdf magazine you've ever read indefinitely. Paper magazines take over the house if you don't keep chucking them.
