    View Camera magazine back in business?

    Got a subscription to View Camera magazine for Christmas. I thought they had stopped publication.

    Are they back in business again?

    From the website
    View Camera is no longer being published.

    If you subscribe you will receive 6 of the most recent issues.

    It does look like you get access to old articles online

    And so it does. I tried to call and get some adjustment or switch to the reprint of lenses. The phone seems to be disconnected. Sent an e-mail and will have to hope for the best on this.

    There are 'companies' that provide magazine subscription services. They get the subscribers list from the magazine and then send direct mail renewal invoices to those subscribers. Supposedly, they then close the link and enter a subscription on behalf of the actual subscriber, but I wouldn't automatically assume that to be the case - I know of one instance in which the editor of a magazine published an notice warning subscribers to stay away from these 'aftermarket' subscription services because at least some of them are pure scams.

    I have personally renewal invoices from them for magazines that I knew had ceased publication as much as a year before they mailed the invoice. I've also received renewal notices from them for magazines for which I have never had a subscription.


    The real renewal notice from Steve Simmons was a simple post card.

    Got another 'renewal notice' in the mail today - for a magazine I have never heard of.

    The offer comes in a plain white envelope with the return address "PO Box 1985, San Marcos, CA". The invoice asks that checks be made payable to "PMB Pacific Magazine Billing, LP".

    PMB is a scam. Search Google and read their BBB complaints.

    So, if you sign up do you get the first issue without typos?
    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    Those of us doing wet plate preferred to think of those typos as "artifacts" that showed the magazine was a hand-made artistic creation, not the product of industrial perfectionism...
