Guest host Jeff Johnson and “NewsOne Now” look at how millennials in the #BlackLivesMatter, #ICantBreathe and #HandsUpDontShoot movements are using social media to let their voices be heard around the nation. Can the call for change eventually effect policy change?

Every week, it’s the same. Another email from another talented Canadian jewelry designer hoping for a place to sell their wares. Fortunately for them, Jennifer Stone, the keen-eyed buyer for Magpie Jewellery, has a thing for homegrown talent. In fact, she stocks the company’s three locations with about 80-per-cent Canadian designers, including a number from Ottawa.
Holy hotness! Gigi Hadid, 20, is back for her third appearance in the annual Sports Illustrated‘s iconic Swimsuit Issue and this time, she’s taking things to a whole new sexy level. As if her racy spread wasn’t already hot enough, on Feb. 18 the magazine released a new behind-the-scenes video of her sexy shoot, giving us definitive proof that she is by far the world’s hottest model. Seriously, from flaunting her butt in a thong one-piece to showing off the most insane underboob we’ve ever seen, this is by far the model’s sexiest photo shoot yet. See it here!
There’s no way to shoot these lenses off the camera to see how they work without correction; they are intended to work with the camera as a complete system.
The XT-2 has a huge, live electronic finder with eye control, about 15 years ahead of LEICA’s plastic EVF on the M typ 240. Fuji is actually advancing the state-of-the-art in photography, while other brands are just sitting around selling the same old thing. This Fuji actually has dials and a control system that work together, not like the could-have-been-great dials on the Nikon Df.
The X-T2 focuses super fast, and it’s super sharp, and unlike a real SLR or rangefinder camera, the XT-2’s closed-loop mirror less auto-focus system ensures that focus is dead-nuts perfect every time.
When you use the Fuji, you’ll see how they’ve actually been thinking about how to rethink what a camera should be and add new features that help us get the shot, as opposed to throwing more junk features in our way to help sell more cameras.
The X-T2 has a very different sensor from other brands, and its images look very different. It has no anti-alias filter, so the results are much sharper than from most other cameras.
The X-T2 just shoots, and the results are always super-sharp and well exposed better than I get from DSLRs, whose exposure and focus aren’t always dead-on as they are with the X-T2.
The X-T2 has real exposure mode switches. Nikon and Canon don’t any more. Better yet, the Fuji, just like Contax, changes its exposure mode automatically as you turn the shutter and/or aperture rings to A when you want them to set themselves. Set both to A for Professional (formerly Program) exposure mode. Done.
