BUYING A DIGITAL CAMERA
We think Digital Camera Resource Page is a good place to start if you're in the market for megapixels. Especially helpful is their buyer's guide.

QUALITY PRINTS
Reader question: "This is becoming something of a lost art. But I'm looking for a good place to do prints of photographs from my black and white (and some color) negatives suitable to be matted and framed. I also wouldn't mind finding a place that does quality digital prints. I don't know. Kodak online sucks. Ifoto is okay but there's gotta be something better out there."

MUG: Our sources say they've gotten quite acceptable results from mpix.com with their Kodak Endura Metallic paper. They offer "true black and white digital printing," too. Good prices and shipping is solid in a flat box.

CAMERA MANUALS
For recently produced cameras, you can usually find the manual online at the manufacturer's website. But when you a buy a vintage camera, the manual is usually MIA. Camera Manual Store to the rescue. They'll get a reproduction of any one of over 4,000 manuals to you within two days. Generally, $10-$30.

THE NEW FRONTIER
In the DUMBO building at 111 Front [Wash] you'll find a cluster of new photography galleries including Howard Schickler Fine Art, which specializes in vintage fine art photography, Safe-T-Gallery, Underbridge Pictures, Wessel + O'Connor Fine Art, and the Positive Focus Gallery, and DUMBO Gallery.

17TH STREET PHOTO
B & H Photo = big. 17th Street Photo = small. Guess which one MUG likes.

JOE'S NYC
If you're interested in buying a print of one of Joe Holmes' great photos (he's the Joe of joe's nyc, featured daily on MUG), many of them are available at his website.
