Comments Roger, It's your fault I'm selling all my camera gear and trading up to the Nikon Df! That article of yours in AP (5 Nov 2016)got me hankering after one. It's just taken me 2 years to pluck up the courage. Can't make up my mind on black or silver though. BTW that Micro Nikkor 55mm is still available on eBay for less than 200.

Comments I have loved your works for many (too many?) years. I used to search through Shutterbug Magazine every month to find your articles. Perusing your website is like seeing an old, comfortable friend again after a long absence.

Comments Roger and Frances, I've been a fan of yours for getting on for 30 years and have a goodly number of your books on my shelf. Many thanks for your instructive and interesting sites. I also have retired to SW France in Charente Maritime so not too far from you. Sorry to read that you have been unwell, I hope both of you are better now. Bon Courage!

Comments Dear Roger Hicks, we are reprinting Tory Heaven next April. It will be the fifth Laski novel Persephone Books has done and I had long dithered about it (it's only a long short story really) but the tragedy of Brexit has made it sadly relevant. So I wanted to thank you for writing it up so interestingly, yours is about the only mention of it on the web - Reading 1900-1950 or whatever it's called doesn't really get it. And I am writing to ask - with your obviously brilliant internet skills are you able to find any original reviews? Ie. how was it greeted at the time? When it was reprinted the next year in the US (or DS) as Toasted English Kirkus didn't really get it. I have decided not to have a preface because what is there to say except gnashing of teeth? But if you wanted to write something for the Persephone Biannually I would be delighted. Very best wishes Nicola Beauman Persephone Books London WC1N 3NB

Comments Have most of your books, esp. value Med&Largeformatphoto. A good idea for a book would be what films and papers there are available now, most of the manufacturers you quote either have gone out of business or severely restricted types etc. Hope that getting older does not stop yr output. Keep the flag flying for US and UK. Tom

Comments Hi Roger I happened to be browsing for something and your site popped up like a blast from the past! I've also had a look at the .eu site but couldn't see a guest book so thought I'd say "hi" here. Best wishes to you both. Jon

Comments I was just think about you both today and just found your website. I have so many fond memories of our visits at various trade shows including the famous drinking contest between Bonnie & Bernie at the PMA show in Orlando. Alas all three have moved on. I'm still writing for the magazine which is a far cry for what it once was. All the best to you both,

Comments Dear R&F, Earlier today (09.05.2016) I had a look at your new web site. I won't comment. It would distress me too much. What has happened? And why? Have you given up on your old web site? To me, you are the last of the Old School photographers, who pursue the craft for the love of it. Obviously, like me, you are dinosaurs in this D-everything age. Don't get me started on 21st century photo-crap. I could write enough on this topic to grind out a book, which of course would never sell. Who buys books nowadays? Is there any hope for you to return to the old style of writing I so loved in your original web site? Or have market forces driven you to try other things? If so, then dare I say it, your new format will not do it, as it just doesn't cut it. Yahoo style. Written as a very serious comment. With my best regards, JD in Sarawak.

Comments I haven't visited your site for a while, but I read your 2 May 2013 thoughts about photograph "fermentation" shortly after I had gone through a couple hundred of my archived prints. Perhaps fortuitously, because I'd pitched a half dozen in the trash ("WHAT was I thinking!") and several others in a stack to remind me that I absolutely must pull those negatives and take another try them. Thanks so much for your faithfulness in updating your site. I do enjoy it and it so often validates my own thoughts. Come to think of it, that happens all too infrequently, so thanks again. A donation is forthcoming. How true.

Comments I stumbled across your book, Medium Format Handbook, in the late 80's. It opened the door to the world beyond 35mm. A place I have enjoyed ever since. Thank you

Comments I have Roger's book on Black and White Photography. I repeatedly delve into it. I also have the lens boo and low-light photography. I use a pair of Leica MDa bodies with a 3.5cm f3.5 Summaron lens and SBLOO finder atop. Focus is by scale and as Roger says, estimating exposure is easy after a while. Film is XP2 and is scanned to disc for me. So my bodies are "digital" cameras! All the best. David Murray.

Comments Hi Roger, really love 'final analysis' in amateur photographer. Keep it up. Your page here and your books are always fascinating. Whenever I want inspiration and sound philosophy your words keep me going! P.s I finally got my 35mm lens. Regards Kieran Dandy
