  • Bubbles

    The latest chinook has blown away the snow and polished up the ice at a beaver pond that I know up in Kananaskis Country. So I strapped on my crampons and wandered out on the frozen surface to have a look. There were all kinds of cool things both in and on the ice.

  • Fujifilm X-T20 and X100F Hands-On First Look

    It’s always exciting when we get an opportunity to get an early look at cameras for TCSTV, but especially so when the cameras in question are exciting additions to Fuji’s outstanding X-Series.  I recently commented on a TCSTV Live episode that I hoped Fuji would start bringing some of the technology from their excellent X-T2 and X-Pro 2 into some of their more compact models, and that’s exactly what we see with the release of the X-T20 and X100F. While the cameras we received were still unfinished, I had a great time shooting with both of them, and fully expect Fuji to have a couple more winners on their hands.

  • An Eagle Story

    This guy was different. He just looked over his shoulder, seemed to shrug, then ignored me. I took a couple of shots, and then decided to edge closer. That worked so I edged closer again. And, then suddenly I was right across the road from him, so close that I didn’t need the full power of my Sigma 150-600 C zoom to get a picture. He barely acknowledged my presence.

  • Mike Drew's Review on The Canon EOS M5

    Let’s get this out of the way right off the top. The Canon EOS M5 is a sweet little camera.

    It does pretty much everything its more sizeable siblings can do and even a few things they can’t. The controls are all in their familiar places - familiar to Canon shooters, anyway - the EVF is nice and snappy, the big back screen gives you an IMAX view of whatever you’re shooting and the focusing is speedy and accurate.

  • Reflections on Photographing Syrian Refugees in Calgary

    I found myself wondering how I would’ve handled the same situation, fleeing my homeland with nothing but the clothes on my back, and worrying about my loved ones. My first meeting with the newcomers took place a year ago when they arrived at the Calgary International Airport.

    A couple of things struck me on that December night. For instance, the number of locals that were present to warmly greet the Refugees surprised me. There were “Welcome To Canada” signs, bags of winter clothing, and toys for the kids, and plenty of smiles for everyone. Some of the refugees even had family members, already established in Calgary, on hand to welcome them, hugging and crying.
