Re: "magnachrome"

I agree with Charles about having to magnify the pages for Magnachrom. They (Magnachrom) should take a look at how Brooks Jensen is presenting work in Lenswork Extended. LWE is distributed on DVD to their subscribers and is lcompsoed in a very readable PDF formated document, not to mention the audio and video clips. I always look forward each issue of LW and LWE.


I do think Magnachrom is a pretty good deal though, well worth the price of registration, and I also think it will continue to evolve in response to the feedback readers provide.
