    With the current trend in magazines of this nature would EPZ ever consider joining this band wagon.

    I know a book has already been made, but how trying a quarterly or bi-annual PDF magazine.

    Sounds a good idea but personally I prefer the paper version so i can refer back to articles at a later date

    Just wondering what a PDF would give us that the site doesn't or couldn't? Maybe that we could read something when we don't have an internet connection, but then I would prefer a proper printed magazine to read.

    Hmm,

    Well I can kind of see a use for it. Say every quarter I received a pdf with a load of the techniques and articles that have been on the site. It means I can read them at my leisure on the train and off line.

    It would be a bit easier than trying to keep up with all the articles on the site, would add another option for advertising (revenue) and would be relatively simple to create.

    Funny I would have thought the reverse would be true: pdf magazines can be stored forever, searched much more quickly and take up no space at all. Where paper mags score for me is in being able to see nice large printed photos.

    Nice idea but I hate reading things online or from screens and would much rather have hard copy. Thats why I will never get an e reader.

    I prefer magazines on PDF I can easily read and carry them on my iPad, zoom in and out search quickly and bookmark etc etc. I can carry lots more than I would do as my printed ones are either in the loft or a box in a cupboard. With the PDFs they are to hand when ever I want them I can even store them in the cloud to download to my device when needed, I can't do that with printed ones.

    How about this

    The team could be using these and getting out there a little more.

    Indeed - it's 6 years since the book came out. A lot has happened since then - new equipment, new members.

    A PDF-only new book would hopefully mean a great deal less hassle for the likes of Pete. Smile

    The books already available as a pdf, equipment changes, but not the seeing and taking.

    True but if the equipment is out of date then the book will have a yesteryear feel to it! Actually looking at the names of some of the members in there (no longer active on EPZ) also makes it feel a touch yesteryear as well. Wink

    But it is a fab book and one I still look at from time to time. Smile

    Same could be said about off the shelf photo mags.

    I find they focus too much on the equipment Smile

    Well that's because they are dependent on advertisers selling equipment. EPZ had no such constraints for the book. Smile
