    Apparently you havent read all the threads here telling us it can never work, with me being about the only person in person out of 81,000 saying yes it can. If you had read those threads it would have saved you from all the success you've been having.

    We plan to start next Wednesday. We tried to create a really interesting offer. 49$ for a yearly subscription including shipment to your home adress.

    I don't think $49 bucks is all that bad. When I was gainfully employed, I wouldn't have batted an eye to spend that on drinks but as a student it is a little pricey. I think it is worth it, just got to adjust my photography budget. Good luck!

    Has anyone in the US actually seen an issue and can comment on its image quality, or who reads German and can comment on its article quality?

    I'm in for the year's worth.
    Does that include issue #1 or does that have to be purchased seperately?

    Yes the yearly Subscription does include the first issue. We added a seperate the special edition for collectors cause we got requests about this. It comes with an autograph of the musician on the cover and on the video.

    Just a comment from my side. I know that a lot of you in the states or other parts in the world haven't seen the magazine in real. But I can asure you that we print it on the best quality paper.

    The yearly Subscription including shipment is really calculated on the best possible price.

    We belive in filmphotgraphy and we belive in printed image. The print itselve is done in Germany and the magazines will be sent from here all over the world. You can imagine that our margine is not high. But we also belive in printed publications so this is our invest into the future.

    Our goal is quite high but we really hope to find enough readers who are also belive in film, printed image and print!

    So please help us to make this possible! Please share it with friends and on other platforms.

    Thanks to all who gave us their support till now

    Regards

    Marwan

    I made a substantial contribution, and see some others have also.

    I really think the goal is unrealistic for a 30-day campaign. Perhaps for 90 days.

    I think the people who told me it can't be done for years should buy me a gift subscription.

    I hope it doesn´t come in the line of The Film Photography Handbook from Rockynook... it´s was really a disappointment: A couple likes photography, a couple likes film photography, a couple buys a couple of cameras, a couple learns to (more or less) develop bw film, a couple buy´s a v750 an use it, a couple writes a book... from beginners to beginners...

    i miss camera and darkroom...

    As backer no. 48 , I hope many more will follow. The German edition is in itself an excellent magazine and I am quite sure an international English version will be a great contribution to analogue photography.

    I've subscribed to the German version from the beginning and so far I liked what I read. It's a nice publication on good paper too. So I'm looking forward to the English version as well.

    I'm backer no. 15 so I'm hopeful, but getting over 3.000 subscriptions through Kickstarter ... I hope so.

    I'm actually amazed that APUG has something like 75000 people here and so few responding
    To this thread
    People don't realize the BIG difference between being published and an online presence ...whats the future of photography without some quality magazines and good printing
