Apparently US publishers are content to kick back and let the UK mags make the mags and the income from selling the magazines. I have subs to 4 of the British photo/camera mags and 2 of the US published mags. It all depends on what you are wanting in content.


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

The British mags are great but so expensive here in the US that I have to read them at the library (i.e. Barnes and Noble :) )


6D, G9, Sigma 50 1.4, Sigma 15mm Fisheye, Sigma 50 2.8 macro, Nikon 14-24G 2.8, Canon 16-35 2.8 II, Canon 24-105 f/4 IS, Canon 70-200 2.8 IS, tripod, lights, other stuff.

For Canon, one of the best mags in EOS Magazine. It's horribly expensive to get the paper version, but the price for the electronic version is quite reasonable. Most of the other mags are releasing digital versions - especially for the iPad.

Your right,the British mags ARE expensive.I see alot of people in the bookstore sitting there reading them and putting them back on the shelf.

Is it cheaper to buy our British magazines on your iPad? Do Apple charge you the same subscription rate?

I am an incorrigible magazine hoarder so I buy all the mags for what ever the subject. I brought over 5000 pounds of magazines from my last home to my new one. Yes it took a separate truck just for magazines. Actually I find Photo Plus to be an excellent mag for Canon owners. I bought an I pad for my mate so she has something to read of worth when we have to go to the hospital for whatever. Currently considering buying one for myself.

You are the person Amazon invented the Kindle for. Have they had any luck with you or was it a wasted venture? :lol:

Many British people commute by train. I don't know whether it's still true, but I did once read that the British magazine market was absolutely larger than the US one despite the smaller population.

Just checked PhotoPlus magazine. A year's subscription to the paper version is £49.99 while a year's worth of the iPad version is 44.99.

I was wondering if it might be cheaper to subscribe on iPad, rather than print, for US customers as presumably Apple charge the same globally for apps?

Yup, that is true. Unfortunately Apple take a big chunk of the cash piad for content bought via the App Store. This is likely to make a lot of companies go the same route as EOS Magazine. Their digital edition (external link) uses HTML 5 - so it can be read using just about any device with a web browser. And Apple gets nothing.
