PHSC News newsletter for June 2021

Mamiya Super-16 subminiature camera

Toronto. At right top of page 1 in the latest PHSC News newsletter is a subminiature film camera made by Mamiya in Japan for all you die-hard film fans.

June of 2021 is well underway, and our editor, Sonja and her team, have produced this thought-provoking   edition to distract you from the current pandemic. Speaking of which, COVID-19 vaccinations are accelerating in spite of the virus variations world-wide. According to the TV news, our percentage vaccinations per capita have catapulted us to the top of the G7 countries after a very sluggish start. Vaccines and close adherence to common sense guidelines seem to be affecting new cases in a very good way.

This latest issue of PHSC News (21-02) has many delightful articles – short, crisp, and provocative. Take a few moments and read them to ease your personal cares (and boredom)!

The page 1 article, ‘Bearly Lucky‘ shows how NOT to chase a bear, in spite of the success this time.  Page 2, under PHSC Presents is, “Honey, I Shrunk the Lighting Equipment)“,  highlighting the various ways slides were viewed under a light microscope . On page 3, in the column “STREAMABLES“ we meet American photographer, the late Elsa Dorfman,  and Polaroid’s massive 20×24 inch studio view camera (few were ever made); while page 4 features a whimsical look at “The Pun-gent Photography of Bruce A. McMillan” in the column called “PHOTO BOOK 101“.

Page 5 discusses “Will an Election Win be Cummings for Erin O’Toole?” in the “MEDIA-ROLOGY” column’s tongue-in-cheek take on a possible O’Toole campaign. And David does his usual saucy Equipment Review, and the “Why it was Tough Going for Silent Film Stars with Acne“ article about ortho and pan film; while page 7 has a trio of WEB LINKS of interest to us all.

And of course, Page 8 features a poster on our forth-coming ZOOM event  “Paulette Michayluk: On Inspiration. You may find this page very familiar since I used it in a recent post :-)! On page 9, Ivy & Izzy trade quips on “The Hallmark of a Drugstore Collection” quietly followed by John’s compilation page of classifieds covering many events of interest to photographers and our members.

P.S. As usual, every link shown in the newsletter is a hot link just waiting for your click!
