          Generally the cost of these mags are way over priced for their content. I'm more than likly to have paid out the best part of an E5 over the years

            exact same photo - cloud in background in exact same position/shape), but this one has an X at top left, and the enlarged portion in the circle insert is blurred/out of focus, allegedly as a result of poor camera holding technique.

            Post-processing of the same shot to give the effect of camera shake. If I, as a hobbyist (albeit with a 30+ year pro photographer father), can spot this, what about cannier readers.

            I wonder if the noise comparison shots in a camera test of ISO100 vs ISO200 vs ISO400 etc are even really separate shots? Or if the noise comparison shots in a group test are even really taken by the different cameras in the test?

            I just look at the ads pages.

              Mags are full of repetitive beginner rubbish, and their reviews always end up rating everything in the 70%-80% range - the last few AP's I've bought have only been for the Leica competition tokens, and I've now got the last one I need, so it'll be back to no more mags for me now.

              It really bugged me buying AP, as you can read the actual content in about five minutes flat.... but if you're the kind of person that loves page after page of adverts, you'll be sorted until it comes out the week after when you can start price comparing all over again.

                    Best bang for your buck IMO is Advanced Photographer. All articles are interesting and they avoid novice stuff, and they have a camera club section - all of which is why I changed my subscription from DSLR User Magazine earlier in the year. This is basically now a mag for novices.

                        I agree with Dave,I bought this magazine one month because I had nothing else to read and I have to say that it was a thoroughly refreshing read.

                        However I do think that all magazines are guilty of repeating themselves over a given time cycle .. after all there is only so much to discuss in photographic terms once you have covered all the usual topics. I had Digital Photo only because my daughter subscribes every Christmas( stocking filler she calls it )
                        but even I am bored with the content. when you strip out what is not relevant to most competent photographers there is sod all left really - at least nothing that a good photography book couldn't provide for a fraction of the cost.
