Mailing 2 issues in advance for subscribers.... Imagine receiving the Nov 2014 issue in Oct 2014! This is for the Magzine's dedicated subscribers. Despite 2 written requests and imploring them to start my subscription from Oct 2014 after paying for subscription in Aug 2014, they insisted on mailing me the Nov 2014 issue to start with . It seems their hands are full and they have too many readers for now! It is unbecoming of a magazine managed by professionals. I like many of their ardent readers, we're looking out for the " Tips Cards " which started with their Oct 2014 issue!
Great advice in plain language! This mag is accessible to anyone at any level. Beginners will profit as will seasoned photographers and all in between . it tend to skew a little to the canon side but Nikon users will not feel neglected, just second. That being said they maybe right I do not have the money to do those comparison!!! I still respect this periodical above many other on offer to the humble enthusiast crowd, it has never looked down on me in that condescending tone that is so commonly used, and it takes the time(and precious space) to explain things sometimes taken as obvious by the Pro crowd that may not be familiar to all(especially if you do not own the same brand of cameras being used in the article!). That is what sets this above the rest for me at least
Too Pricey I love the magazine, great features, seriously useful tips, in my view the best mag for my level of experience. (I do get fed up with Photo Mags assuming everyone can afford Photoshop) I came here to check out the price - and I am afraid it has put me off, especially as they say "This digital version of the magazine does not include the covermount items you would find on printed newsstand copies." Recently they have been including a series of Video Tutorials on CD's with the printed version, but I am fairly certain some of those end up on the website anyway. Bring the price down (a lot) and I might consider it.
Not great Got a digital and print sub but do not seem to be able to download issues for offline use to archive the information. Very annoying. Magazine is a good read.
Great In terms of reviewing the magazine, which is what these ratings are about, it's a good read for someone like me who's recently got a DSLR and is learning more about it. There was a good variety of ideas and advice on things to try. My 4 stars are based on the magazine itself. ----------------------- It's not fair to rate this magazine based on the reading experience or the price: I enjoyed reading this magazine on my Nexus 7. It's pretty easy to zoom in and out, and the magazine is just the same as the one in the shops. As other reviewers have said, I feel like I'm not willing to pay as much for a digital version, so won't be continuing the subscription beyond the free trial! The main annoyance I had was that it didn't seem to remember which page I was up to across the devices I tried reading it on.
Great Magazine! INSANE Price The price is crazy,I love the magazine but somebody got greedy with the pricing. Oh well, another will come along with sane pricing and that's the one I'll get. SO SAD!
