There was another "Camera Arts" mag many years ago (70s). I still have an
issue or two at home if anyone wants details. I don't know if there is any
connection to S.S's Camera Arts.

Camera Arts is still with us and owned by the same guy as "View Camera",
who is under the gun on the large format Newsgroup for alleged "spamming" of
said Newsgroup.
The website for these excellent rags are little more than and ad and
subscription sign up for the magazines.
A slight disappointment and hardly the typical resource many other lessor
magazines websites have.
Steve says he's rather use the money to get better paper for the magazine.
I'm stumped on that mystery!
But love the magazines anyway.
But I ain't going to subscribe.
Every magazine has their special "nothing in it" issue.
Which i always pass on! :)
