1. Gold star: Actress Persis Khambatta was photographed by Bob Kiss using a 35mm SLR, 105mm macro lens and Kodachrome 25 film. Light from a large flash was bounced off an umbrella, then softened further with a diffuser. A silver reflector opened the remaining shadows. Exposure was determined by a flashmeter.

2. No more shoe boxes: Contributing Editor Cora Wright Kennedy described her system for imposing order on slide chaos. Her three-part program started with archival slide pages for long-term filing, plus Kodak slide clips and a stack loader to fit Carousel and Ektagraphic projectors.

3. Speed delivered: One of the most impressive new products at the 1982 Photokina reported in this issue was Kodaks Kodacolor VR 1000 color print film, which opened new possibilities for both low-light and high-speed photography. The film used radical new "T-Grain" emulsion technology for greater sensitivity.

4. Instant 35mm: Another film miracle introduced at Photokina was Polaroid's instant 35mm color slide film, a complex emulsion, as this 250X magnification of the red/green/blue-striped additive color screen demonstrated. Technical Director Norman Goldberg reported that the film produced sharp, accurate color images from his 35mm SLR.

5. Iranian Madonna: Ashvin Gatha, an Indian photographer, used cola to help generate reactions from viewers. In this photo of an Iranian mother and her child, the black symbolizes restrictions on women, while the red sunglasses on the child is a symbol of love between the mother and child.

1. Natural beauty:

Glamour photographer Don Ornrtz photographed actress May Britt in overcast daylight, true to the 'available light" theme of this issue. He used a Leica M-3, 125mm f/2.5 Hektor lens, and Daylight Kodachrome. (While the copy at left is monochrome, the original cover was in color.) Exposure: 1/10 sec at f/4.5. Ornitz said he never used flash for glamour photos.

2. Hasselblad goes Compur: A major change in the traditional Hasselblad was the introduction of the 500C, which used a Compur between-the-lens shutter instead of the original focal-plane shutter. The tradeoff was loss of 1 /1000 sec top speed in return for a significant gain in reliability and flash capability. The new model also offered fully automatic operation, interchangeable viewing hoods. Price: $480.50.

3. Compact flash: Another innovation, the use of transistors in electronic flash, was embodied in the Mecablitz 100.
