DCM, only when something grabs my attention.  ;)

Digital Photo is one of my favourites, I like the vid tutorials. :tup:

I don't subscribe to any but I buy pretty much all of them except the ones with 'professional' in the title. I don't like that one 'Digital Photographer' much though so don't get that very often.

For me, it's just DCM, although when passing through the UK, I'll usually pick up any of the mags that are on offer (they're usually 15EUR here)

Blimey Hugh, €15.00 is about £9.75, you could have my old DCMags for around £9.50 each when I've finished with them  :)

Subscribed to DCM from the first issue. Stopped when they changed the size for the second time. Never bought another issue since. I like Practical Photography and might as well subscribe because I hardly ever not buy the latest issue.
I like it best because it is more a photography magazine rather than a digital magazine.

Practical and Outdoor Photography are my main buys. Others if there is something of interest in.

I subscribed to Canadian Outdoor Photographer. As I am.....Canadian! :D. I otherwise browse the shelves of my local news vender and pickup which ever has an article that is a. interesting to me or b. new to me. What I've found is that alot of what's out there is just the same stuff recycled over and over. I mean how many different ways can you sharpen a photo? :o
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Spinner,

Welcome to the forums, and I know about 8 different ways of sharpening a photo and could possibly dream up a couple more. But in essence I agree with the repetition of the magazines. In autumn the autumn shots in winter the winter shots etc. After a couple of years of subscription it is like groundhog day.

Lost count of how many articles telling me how to convert to B+W I've got stashed about the place. CDs with video lessons, technique cards...

Ain't nothing new under the sun.

Still, never stopped sales of top shelf magazines, and no-one accuses them of being repetitive!  :-\

I only grab DCM now and then if there's a forum members photo in for example, I prefer practical photography overall, but even that I only get now and again.

Hugh, I was shocked at 10.90 eur for dcm and 9 or so for pp here in portugal !!

The subscription is considerably cheaper (same rate as UK plus a little bit). 15EUR was the worst price I saw in a shop, sometimes the mags are available for below EUR10 or so, but either way, it's a bit too steep. Books are a similar price. Still, there're quite a few English bookshops (used to be a WH Smith in A'dam), American bookshop in the Hague, and most of the larger ones have an English section.

Picked up Outdoor Photography today. Some great macaque shots in the hot spas in Japan.

Now, when the snow comes, would recommend anyone interested to come to Monkey Forest at Trentham Gardens. Not quite Japan, but great photo opportunities!
