Macfilos returns next week after summer break

We are back next week after our two-week summer break. During the downtime, we moved over to a new server to cope with the increasing size of the site. First impressions are positive — pages are loading much faster than they did before, and the reader experience is likely to be much improved.

Readers may be disappointed, however, that the promised new look hasn’t yet appeared. We had been hoping to start next week with a completely new theme. Unfortunately, teething troubles mean that the update isn’t going to be ready for some weeks. There is even a possibility we will remain with the current theme but redesign the home page to remove the unsightly black mosaic of the latest articles from the top. At least, for now, the site is functional.

Meantime, we can start posting articles which will include some news catchups from the past two weeks.

Authors

If you have been holding back articles during the break, please send them through now since we have used up most of the available material during the quiet summer period.

We would also welcome new contributors who have something to say on photography, whether Leica-related or more general. Why not let us have your experiences with a favourite camera or lens, for instance?

Any form of text file is acceptable and photographs can be sent without cost by WeTransfer.com. As usual, we will edit the text and ensure that it follows our normal style and is consistent with the general appearance of the site. You can see as many page proofs as you wish until everything just right.

Don’t worry if you are not a natural writer, just set down your thoughts and we will do the rest. All we ask is for a few images to illustrate the text

Over the years we have built up a strong cohort of authors, covering a wide range of subjects from equipment reviews to copiously illustrated travelogues which are always popular.

Macfilos discussions

The vibrant comments section gives authors a strong sense of community — and our regular commenters are invariably kind and constructive. We don’t tolerate trolling, gratuitous insults, politics or any other contentious issues outside the realm of photography. Because of this, Macfilos is a refreshing change from some forums and websites where rampant arguments and discourtesy are the norm.

So keep the articles coming and you will enjoy becoming part of our community.
