The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), the organization in charge of Canada’s ‘.ca’ top-level domain, has published a series of stock photos that poke fun at Canadian stereotypes. In a bid to get more people to add something ‘uniquely Canadian’ to their projects, they’re offering up their library of stock images for free.
Anyone can use small, medium, large or extra-large sized images from the library, though they ask for an email address to access the extra-large 4K files. All CIRA asks, in return, is that a credit along the lines of ‘photo by CIRA/.CA,’ along with a link back to their website, is included.

CIRA has their own version of the popular ‘distracted boyfriend’ meme, featuring a hockey player, and other distinct nods to Canadian culture including a moose interacting with backpackers and a lumberjack taking a swig of maple syrup. Anyone with the desire to add to this collection of images is encouraged to contact CIRA.
It’s inexpensive, lightweight and will keep going for days on a single battery charge. While it’s not great for video and its wireless image transfer is slow, the D3500 is a simple and un-intimidating camera that’s a great starting point for beginners.
The D780 comes as a belated update to the well-respected D750. We’ve been impressed by what we’ve seen of what’s essentially a mirrored Z6.
Canon’s latest flagship, the EOS-1D X Mark III is a big, fast, tough DSLR that hides an impressively refined mirrorless camera within it. We’ve taken a pre-production model to a basketball game, a low light concert, and even a blacksmith shop. Find out how we think it stacks up.
We’ve been testing the Nikon Z50 extensively and found a lot to like about it. However, the camera’s biggest drawback is probably that it faces such well-established competition.
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III is the company’s latest Micro Four Thirds camera; it looks great, feels great, and takes beautiful photos. There’s a lot to like, but there are a few things we’d change. Find out more in our full review.
