MAGAZINES

I KNOW THERE WAS A THREAD AWHILE AGO, ABOUT WHICH MAGAZINES PEOPLE SUBSCRIBE TO. I HAD AN EMAIL FROM DIGITAL CAMERA MAGAZINE, THEIR SUBSCRIPTION FOR THIRTEEN ISSUES IS 39.99. I LOOKED AT DIGITAL PHOTO, THEY WANT 53.99 IF YOU PAY BY DIRECT DEBIT AND 60.99 IF YOU PAY BY CREDIT CARD.

I HAVE NEVER LOOKED AT DIGITAL PHOTO MAGAZINE, IS IT THAT MUCH BETTER THAN DIGITAL CAMERA, THAT IT'S NEARLY TWICE THE PRICE?

Re: MAGAZINES

I've only taken Digital Photo for some time now. If you subscribe, they usually have some offer of a bit of kit 'free', and also there is the cover disc with on average 12 video lessons and other stuff that I guess has to be paid for too.

A while back, if you subscribed for 18 months they gave you a Lowepro Mini Trekker AW. Like everything else - only any good if you wanted what they are offering.

Other recent subscription offers have been a five-sided reflector and other bags.

Re: MAGAZINES

Well it does me. I think there is only one way of deciding if it suits you or not, and that is to get one or two copies and see if the style and content is up your street.

They do have a cover disc every month, mostly the tutorials are for Photoshop and Elements, but also there are a couple of PSP lessons too. They are also in the mag too, so you can read them if you want.

My subscription has been running for about 18 months now, so I suspect they will start repeating more and more stuff soon. I've already seen some stuff that has been covered before (often using a different technique), but while there are new things too I'll stick with it for a bit longer.

Re: MAGAZINES

Not a lot of PSP stuff Woody - usually no more than a couple out of 12 tutorials. One thing - if you buy the mag in a shop you get the DVD in a case. if you subscribe, it comes in a cardboard sleeve.

I bought a DVD case in Sainsbury's that holds 48 DVDs for 4.99. Ideal for the coverdisks in their sleeves.

Mine comes through my letterbox around 17-20th of the month. Don't know if it is in the shops then or it it is a bit later.

Re: MAGAZINES

Your welcome Woody... if your going to subscribe you may as well get the free bag, you can always stick it in the Classifieds and make a few extra quid if it's surplus to requirements.

Re: MAGAZINES

I BOUGHT THE SPRING ISSUE OF DIGITAL PHOTO TODAY. HAD A QUICK FLICK THROUGH, LOOKS VERY GOOD, THE TUTORIALS LOOK INTERESTING.

VERY GOOD REVIEW IN THERE ABOUT WIDE ANGLE LENSES, SIGMA 10-20MM
CAME OUT TOPS AND HAS BEEN AWARDED DIGITAL PHOTO GOLD AWARD,
VERY GOOD COMPARISONS WITH OTHER WIDE ANGLE LENSES. WELL WORTH READING, IF YOU ARE THINKING OF BUYING A WIDE ANGLE LENS.

A GOOD THING THAT IMPRESSED ME ABOUT THIS MAGAZINE, IS IT'S NOT COMPLETELY FULL OF ADVERTS. I THINK SO FAR, FROM WHAT I HAVE READ I WILL BE SUBSCRIBING TO DIGITAL PHOTO
