WE REMEMBER

Had the privilege of photographing and chatting with Maj. J. Estrela, an Army officer in the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, this past Rememberance Day. Special thanks to Royal Canadian Military Institute for hosting us and Robert Baines of The NATO Assoication of Canada for helping me put this together. I am currently looking for funding for a project to photograph and document the stories of 400 veterans from across Canada. I hope this is the first portrait of many to come. Thank you Maj. Estrela for your time, service and sacrifice.

FUJI FILM GFX 50S COMING 2017

gizguide-fujifilm-gfx-50s

Fuji Film jumps into the medium format camera world with its new offering the GFX 50S mirrorless 51.4MP camera scheduled to hit shelves in 2017.

Boasting to be smaller and lighter than most medium format cameras the GFX 50S looks a lot like bigger version of the traditional D-SLR with a few cool accessories including a rotating EVF prism viewfinder. Six lenses ranging from the 23MM – 120MM are slated for market also in 2017.

The GFX 50S has the same 51.4MP pixel count at the Pentax 645Z and the Hasselblad X1D.

I am very curious to see how this camera performs against its competitors as well as its price point.
