Canon M5...

Tuesday November 29th 2016  |  St-Lin, Que.

Canon finally made available the new M5, mirroless series body, and along with the EF lens adapter, it should become an important part of our arsenal, as we'll be able to shoot in complete silent mode, while being able to use our usual Pro L-Series lenses.  The small body, that will pack a big result.

The Canon EOS M5 is the most enthusiast-friendly EOS M yet. It's a 24MP mirrorless camera built around a Dual Pixel APS-C sensor, giving it depth-aware focus across most of the frame. On top of this it adds a built-in electronic viewfinder, a good number of external controls and a well implemented touchscreen.

Key Specifications

  • 24MP Dual Pixel APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • 2.36M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder
  • 1.62M-dot tilting rear touchscreen
  • Electronic video stabilization combines with in-lens IS to give 5-axis IS
  • 7 fps continuous shooting (9 fps with focus and exposure locked)
  • Wi-Fi with always-connected Bluetooth
In fact it's the implementation of this touchscreen that we're most impressed with. Much like the system developed by Panasonic, the M5 not only lets you use the rear touchscreen to position focus, it also allows its use as a touchpad to move the focus point, when you're shooting through the viewfinder. This, combined with decisive autofocus, should be really significant for both stills and video shooting.

The camera has four dials in total: two main dials on the top of the camera, a dedicated exposure compensation dial and a fourth dial encircling the four-way controller on the back of the camera. This is a much higher level of direct control than offered on the simpler EOS M-series models offered previously, suggesting Canon expects the user to take more hands-on control of the shooting experience.

Beaudry is back (and Bionic)...

Sunday November 13th 2016  |  St-Lin-Laurentides, PQ

Two months ago today, I was entering the operation room to undergo a complete shoulder reconstruction, and was extremely weary of the outcome, wondering if I could ever practice the hobbies, sports and most importantly, the work I love so much... Photography.

What was supposed to be and long and difficult rehab period, turned out to be a time of peace, introspection, and revelation.  The wonderful people that surround me, have shown me to what extent they care.  There are too many to name (and I'd be scared to forget someone).  But aside from the medical team of surgeons, nurses, anesthetist, physio-therapists, there were the friends that took time out of their busy schedules, to come assist me on a daily basis. To you I am eternally grateful.

Professionally speaking, I could not have imagined a better scenario.  ALL our clients have continued to either give us work during that time-frame, and those that could, even postponed their projects until I was back on track.  We find ourselves with an overwhelming feeling of appreciation.  To you all, I feel in debt.

To my co-workers that made themselves available, took on more duties and were able to replace me, thanks for the amazing work.

You have all shown me, that a being is no one without his surrounding peeps.

Thank you, and much love!

Beaudry is Back! (and Bionic)

Leonard Cohen dies at age 82...

November 10th 2016  |  Los Angeles, CA
2016 has been a horrific year for the passing of legends, and unfortunately, the tragedy continues.

Leonard Cohen, the hugely influential singer and songwriter whose work spanned nearly 50 years, died at the age of 82. Cohen's label, Sony Music Canada, confirmed his death on the singer's Facebook page. 
"It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away," the statement read. "We have lost one of music's most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief." A cause of death and exact date of death was not given.
"Unmatched in his creativity, insight and crippling candor, Leonard Cohen was a true visionary whose voice will be sorely missed," his manager Robert Kory wrote in a statement. "I was blessed to call him a friend, and for me to serve that bold artistic spirit firsthand, was a privilege and great gift. He leaves behind a legacy of work that will bring insight, inspiration and healing for generations to come.""My father passed away peacefully at his home in Los Angeles with the knowledge that he had completed what he felt was one of his greatest records," Cohen's son Adam wrote in a statement to Rolling Stone. "He was writing up until his last moments with his unique brand of humor."
