AJAXNETPHOTO IMAGE ARCHIVES - IMPORTANT UPDATE

As some viewers may already be aware, AjaxNetPhoto >www.ajaxnetphoto.com< image archives have been hit by a coding glitch which has disabled both the search and image pages display functions.

AjaxNetPhoto web site pages are NOT affected except for the link buttons which provide search and display functions for each image category and independent keyword searches.

This is the first time in several years of perfect functionality the archives have encountered a problem. Cursory investigation indicates a wide range of coding errors and or bug possibilities in the hosting application and because of this and the time needed trying to fix the problem, AjaxNetPhoto has made a decision to move its image archive to a remote server. (see Head in The Clouds article in October 2011 issue of The British Journal of Photography for an explanation of remote storage utility.)

The transfer process has been initiated but it may take several weeks before status is up to scratch.

Low resolution thumbnail galleries and image previews can be accessed using the following link;

>http://www.wuala.com/Jonathan_Eastland/Photos/AJAXNETPHOTO<

Once the page opens in a browser, clicking on GENERAL_ARCHIVES opens more image folders.

Click on any folder to open it and see image thumbnails.
Click on any image to open a larger preview image.
Download a preview image by clicking on the image name (bottom left of image).
Copy or Send an image (or other options) using CTRL+pad or mouseclick on an Apple Mac.

Alternatively, at the top right of the page under the 'Open in Wuala' button, viewers will see a button labeled 'detail view'. Clicking this button gives a list and object name of each image in any folder. Clicking the 'i' button to the right will open any image on the page.

Please note; gallery page viewing efficiency is user CPU and internet connection and browsing dependent. Some thumbnail images may not open instantly. Please wait or use the alternative click 'detail view' and return to 'thumbnail' to reload gallery pages.

Please feel free to use the recommend buttons at the foot of each gallery page.


Thanks for reading this. Progress updates will follow in due course.

OPINIONS

' I can't say how often I have heard a young photographer exclaim: if only I could afford a Nikon, or a Hasselblad, or a Leica, I, too, could make great photographs. And the same sentiment is implied in all the ads in photo-magazines that, counting on snob appeal, urge their readers to "trade up" to some more expensive camera.

This, in my opinion, is baloney.'

1906 - 1999

THE NEW BJP



Oldest photography journal reverts to monthly publication



"Once we decided that a monthly format would better serve our readers, with more in-depth analysis and greater space to showcase the stunning photographs we feature, we began to rethink everything about what a magazine for professional photographer should be," says British Journal of Photography editor Simon Bainbridge.



"The new look reflects the creative industry we work in, and celebrates the talent of the professionals we serve. But, as the industry’s journal of record, we also believe we have a duty to go out and do extensive research on what’s going on in the professional photography market and feed that back to readers, so they’re armed with information about the latest trends, technologies and issues facing them in their business."



He adds: "We believe that print magazines have a positive future, but somewhere along the line publishers have lost sense of what makes them so appealing, and in doing so they’ve given too much ground to the internet. Why do something in print that you can do equally well on the web? So, when we began thinking about what we could deliver as a monthly, we decided to play to the strengths of print."



The stunning new look British Journal of Photography reverts to monthly publication from March 2010.

More Is Less - Panasonic's gem

Ajaxnetphoto Digest - a page of photography this and that

edited by Jonathan Eastland

Panasonic DMC-GF1 Review

In the days before digital you could buy a relatively sophisticated, compact sized camera that came with an absolute minimum number of operating controls. The lens incorporated a focusing ring, and another to set the f stop. Shutter time was dial set and a lever enabled film advance and shutter arming. The settings before releasing the shutter were straightforward and quickly executed.



Panasonic's DMC-GF1 Micro Four Thirds format camera above, can fit Leica lenses.

Step forward into the world of electronics and you find a completely different mindset that attempts to resolve the problems of device and user interaction. It's a conundrum made all the more complex because the nature of the beast means its possible to install a far greater array of features.

read the complete review in this week's British Journal of Photography magazine (18th November, 2009 issue.)
