This was an interesting alternative 'fanzine' in that it showcased the concert photos taken by its editor Neil Anderson, instead of carrying the usual fanzine fare of interviews, articles and reviews.

This fourth issue, released in February 1980 featured 8 photos of the Subs, 7 of which were taken at the Subs' Music Machine gig on 26 January 1980, with the odd-photo-out being a great picture of Paul Slack, again taken at the Music Machine, but from 'January 1979'. Elesewhere in this issue, there were pictures from gigs by the Bodysnatchers in 1979 and 1980, Dolly Mixture in 1980 and Spizz Energi from November 1979, although the front cover carried their new monicker of 'Athletico Spizz 80'.

Apart from the intro page, the only writing featured in 'The Poser' is Neil's article on his art, entitled 'Taking Pictures at Concerts - Buying a camera.'
