Subscriber's Section

In order to access the Subscriber Section you will need the password. It is on the the front cover of the Subscriber copies- the last line of type below the cover photograph if your subscription if you purchased access to the Article Archives.. If there is a bar code on your cover instead, it is because your subscription did notinclude access to the Article Archives. The instructions for accessing this section of the web site are always on the bottom of each issue's Table of Contents page. This is true of the copies mailed to subscribers and for the Online copy as well.


A New Section =- Tech Tips. View Camera will post these periodically. And Readers are invited to send a Tech Tip to where they will be reviewed and posted as well.

Online Edition

Our online version of the printed magazine, primarily intended for readers outside the U.S.

Online subscriptions are done on a yearly basis (January to December). Please note: this does not apply to standard paper subscriptions. When you subscribe at any time during the yearly period, you will be charged the full price of $27.50 U.S. and given access to the entire year's published issues. Everyone's subscription will expire at the same time (December 31st) and renewals will all take effect at the same time (January 1st). You are provided with access to all six issues for the year in which you have subscribed. We encourage you to download and save each issue on your computer, as all issues will be removed at the end of the year to make room for the new year's publications.

A USER ID and a password are provided via email within one business day. This password will be valid for the entire year. These will allow you to enter the special section of the View Camera web site where this material is stored. You will see the current cover and a Table of Contents. The entries on the TOC will be linked to individual articles. Click on the link to see the article. You can read it on the screen and/or download it. There will be a download key on the first page of each article. To download that article simply click on that key.

We are revising the formatting for the ONLINE issues so that they can be read on any device that has internet access. This should be completed by March 5, 2012. We will post a note here when the conversion is complete.

Consumer Warnings

1. DO NOT SUBSCRIBE THROUGH AMAZON.COM. We do not have an account with Amazon, and if you subscribe through them it goes to a third party subscription service and will take weeks for us to get the information. This will delay your receiving your magazines.

2. Beware of scams that all too frequently take place on some of the forums. Many times in the last few years a new company will come on, advertize a new product, or promote themselves as the discount supplier of film, paper, etc. These have been small garage companies that ultimately end up taking people's money and disappearing, and the forum operators and moderators will refuse to take any responsibility for this, even if it has happened previously with the same people and.or company. If their product looks good to you ask them if they have a legitimate third party dealer where you can buy their product. If they say no, then avoid them.
