    As most of us may know, View Camera ceased publication as a paper magazine a little while ago. It inspired mixed opinions but as it seemed to be the only magazine on LF photography, it was to be cherished. It provided a great deal of useful information, some remarkable images and its passing was a regret.
    Today I tried to log on the the viewcamera.com website and discovered this message:

    I think they also did a PDF version. Wonder if anyone has them in a set to share providing we are not breaking any copyright rules

    I think we might have missed the boat here. There were downloadable articles on the website but Steve did say that it would close eventually. I know nothing about copyright, but if anyone has downloaded anything, perhaps we might share them privately rather than publish them on the web. We should certainly respect intellectual property. Simply appropriating Steve's written work would be as bad as stealing his images.

    If I remember correctly (as a former subscriber) the magazine was available in either paper or downloadable form - I went with paper, which I think was the only option at the time. The earlier issues were more to my taste than the more recent ones, and I let my subscription slide.

    When I was a subscriber, I had access to the website for downloading articles, and I find that in 2014 (if the computer date stamp is correct) I downloaded 29 articles of interest. That's articles, not issues.
