I'm down with Jack and Jill, but I swear I read it for the articles.

Kevin, all the magazines are good. It just depends on the articles and their authors. That's what I go by---subjective, I know. But I do lean toward DV Magazine, so I buy each issue blindly. If I don't find anything interesting, there's always the Broadway ads. :)

Personally I like Video Systems magazine, just wish it wasn't so thin.

Is the disparity in content quality between U.S. and U.K. magazines all in my imagination?
Similar comments have come from US readers of a couple of UK mags that I subscribe to, Computer Arts and Computer Arts Specials...how-tos, walk-throughs, in-depth reviews, CD-ROMs with tutorials/demos/freebies.

I haven't seen Video Systems I'll have to look for it. I do occasionally look at Videography and DV to see equipment I can only dream about (if I win the lottery).

I asked a friend of mine (an ex-pat Scot) about the disparity and he thinks it has to do with what he calls the obsessive nature of the Brits and their hobbies. I'd accept that if it were just the hobby magazines but it sounds like the professional computer mags are the same.

The odd thing is that the cost doesn't seem to be that much higher (minus the import costs the store tacks on). I can't believe the production costs are lower so I still wonder why the U.S. mags seem to strive for such mediocrity (in comparison)?

Actually, the content on this board is higher than many of the magazines.....

Film Comment

I don't read any technical magazines. For technical information this board is about as useful as keeping around stacks of magazines that aren't searchable.

The only related magazine I read is Film Comment, the film review magazine put out by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. It helps me keep up on indie and foreign films, especially as very few make it to Vancouver outside of the Vancouver International Film Festival. It comes out bimonthly (?) and has a nice blend of features and review articles. The only thing I can't stand about it is that it includes fiction. I really don't see the point. Otherwise, it's a useful overview of obscure and lesser known works.

Res is an excellent magazine. I like the blend of music and video. This and FilmMaker are the only two that I subscribe to. Every once and a while I will pick up American Cinematographer.

I was in the same boat, which is why I finally paid for a subscription.

RES is still great despite the fact that Adam Wilt and I are no longer listed on the masthead (curse you, Jon Scalise! It was a pretty easy ride while it lasted).

Pardon my lack of knowledge, but what is a "masthead"? Did you write for Res?

videographer magazine

Does anyone know of any good videographer magazines out there? I would prefer ones that focused on filming wildlife, editing, and producing videos. I see that there is one called Computer Video Magazine. Does anyone have an opinion on that one?

DV Magazine and Videographer Magazine, I also find Camcorder Video good when Peter Utz has written some of the articles.

Maybe you can find some information here:
