Maybe it’s just me, but sometimes the replies that are given to the “Inbox” letters I find quite rude and overly defensive. Some of the letters in “Inbox” can be quite critical about your magazine or reviews and I feel the publishers take it quite badly. This has happens quite frequently that it might be putting people off engaging with your magazine. The last example was a letter about a “Three legged rip-off” in the 15 October edition of the magazine. I thought the letter writer had a valid point and he wasn’t partially criticising the reviewer, but making the point similar equipment could be bought for the fraction of the price and still serves it purpose. Buying cheap may not mean high end professional equipment, but for the money you might be getting an absolute bargain. I felt the response could have been dealt with more care, rather than just go on the defence and give a dismissive reply. What’s the point of calling your magazine “Amateur Photographer” if you’re not taking amateur photographers and budgets into account? Some of your readers may only have entry level cameras, a couple of lenses and basic camera equipment. Perhaps you should do a feature of all the expensive high end equipment with fantastic reviews that turned out to be a complete flop and waste of money.
