A little while ago The Camera Store started stocking a new, old product, called Sunprints.There are two varieties, one comes with an acrylic sheet, necessary to
squish things down and keep still on the paper, and the other variety

We love the Fuji X series, and their latest camera just arrived! Unfortunately, it also showed up during a freak snowstorm in the summer. We brave the elements to give you loyal TCSTV viewers the scoop on this cool little compact!
By now, if you are at all interested in the potential benefits of larger sensor real-estate, you have likely read or skimmed a handful of reviews of the newish medium format Ricoh Pentax 645Z. Personally, I am not a gear-head, tech-nut or pixel-peeper. I’m just a hard working mixed-genre photographer.

The book is what it says it is, avoiding the glut of self-help that plagues the “how-to” market. The Filmmaker’s Handbook is how to how-to. It is intelligently written throughout, and the examples and selections that Pincus and Ascher make are subtly and gracefully chosen; there is brilliance in using a sublime still of Anna Karina in Jean Luc Godard’s Vivre sa Vie to expound on the possible virtue lens flare, and I was pleasantly surprised to see a philosophically dense topic like persistence of vision addressed at all, not to mention so deftly.
