Camera 35 magazine
 
Hey Bill,

Do you remember when Camera 35 folded up? I've been looking on line and can't find any info.

End of Camera 35
 
I am going to guess 1963. If a month/year is necessary, I can determine by unpacking my old magazines and seeing what the last volume date was, as it closed while I was holding a subscription. (Yup, it was good enough to save.) Camera 35 really was a wonderful photo magazine, not that large but with good editorial content all the time. It was not encumbered by masses of advertising, which in retrospect may have been not so good.

Edit: Boy, I missed that end date by a bit. The latest issue of Camera 35 for which I can find any record is December 1976, and it may have gone on from then.

I don't know the date but it was after 1963. I took up photography in 1972 or thereabouts and Camera 35 was among my favorite magazines. Excellent publication. I recall it published Gene Smith's "Minamata" as an extended photo essay sometime in 74 or 75 which was a real treat. Of course the columns were outstanding.

I remember camera 35! I had a subscription myself. Good magazine. I concur, it was later than 1963, probably in the 70's.

Here's one from August, 1980: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/1979-1980-Ca...uL1wEICdHOZbmw

Camera 35 faded out in the very early 1980s. The subscription was filled out with Modern Photography, which was far more technical and not as interested in images.

Camera 35 was a '50s outgrowth of US Camera, which turned into Travel & Leisure. '35' initially catered to the users of 'miniature cameras,' which were disdained by the 4x5 shooters and Rolleiflex users.

+ My local library system has scattered issues in the 1970s, and records the publication dates as Vol. 1 (1957)-v. 27, no. 4 (April 1982).
