Cameracraft is a new quarterly subscription-only magazine from Icon Publications Ltd.
The first three issues have now been published. You can choose to start your subscription from Issue 3, or obtain a special deal starting from Issue 1 and covering the first two years (up to Summer 2014). Below: Issue 3, cover photograph by Christopher Bradbury.

We invite you to become a charter subscriber to Cameracraft and enjoy – by fast postal delivery worldwide – a thoughtfully designed and well printed edition every three months. You will want to keep Cameracraft for life. Three years of issues will fill a single binder which is available now. We promise to do what a printed quarterly can do best, leaving breaking news and hardware reviews to the many internet sites which respond within hours. Each edition contains an Update feature which summarises key technology developments in the past quarter. As it says in the latest edition, we are writing for the future as well as for the present.
Our invited retrospectives and working project portfolios will set a new standard. Our visual content will open your photographic eyes, our view of photographic technology and history will absorb you, our practical advice and experience will help you. We promise this will not be just another photo magazine and the work we print will not be a repetition of popular themes.
