PHSC News October 2020

Remember when Ricoh made cameras?

Toronto. Ricoh tried many products over the years, including some that landed it in court for fraud. They once made the XOBBOX transparent film camera in a very limited number. The little beauty is featured on page 1 of our newsletter this month (top right).

Well, are you ready for October 31 shell-out in this year of the infamous COVID-19 pandemic? No? Read on.

Our editor extraordinaire, Sonja Pushchak, and her team have composed the latest issue of PHSC News (20-04 – October 2020) after such a relaxing summer (Yeah, right). We tried to hold an outdoor auction earlier this month but the virus just refused to cooperate! Anyway,  just read these articles in our latest newsletter to take your cares away!

We begin on page 1 with an article on the Modern Zombie (being Halloween and all); followed by a tongue in cheek tale of thanksgiving food magazines (and food photography) in place of the usual PHSC Presents. Page 3 looks at the less ingenious strategy struggling Kodak tried; while page 4 looks at the time Dior graced our fair city. Page 5 is a hoot with its depiction (and video link) of the effect of trying to enforce COVID-19 rules in Calgary. Then David takes a shot at exposure meters in his Equipment Review, followed by his trio of web links helping partner Louise.

Page 8 covers alternatives to our monthly meetings plus a request from Celio, our programme coordinator, and an introduction to his latest post on Instagram (made in collaboration with Alexandra). On page 9, Ivy & Izzy talk about the phantoms of Gothic photography. And as usual, this issue wraps up with the classifieds on page 10. P.S. Every link shown in the newsletter is a hot link just waiting for you to click!

P.P.S. You can visit this issue by clicking here, or by g0ing to the menu item NEWSLETTER at the top of the page. There is a drop down menu that takes you to older issues dating back a couple of decades to the very beginning.
