Saint James Cemetery

The Anglican St. James Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Toronto still in operation. The cemetery was opened in July 1844 for the burial of people professing the Anglican faith.

At that time most of the city’s population of 18,000 lived south of Queen Street West and the cemetery's present location during that era must have been regarded as being outside city limits. The cemetery was necessary as the burial ground around the cathedral itself, in use since 1797, was out of room.

Recognizing the growing trend towards cremation throughout the world, a crematorium was added in 1948. To date over 89,000 interments and 75,000 cremations have taken place at the cemetery.

The entrance to the cemetery is located at the intersection of Bloor and Parliament Streets, overlooking the Don River ravine. Just to the west is the St. James Town neighbourhood, which is named after the cemetery.

Nikon D800 & D800E

D800

The much anticipated full-frame D800 has been announced by Nikon. There is not just one new camera but two. The difference between the D800 and the D800E is the absence of the optical low-pass filter on the D800E model. This in essence will give you a sharper final image but at the expense of  moiré. It will be interesting to see how well the E model is going to be received by photographers.

Here are some quick specs:

  • 36.3 megapixel 35.9 x 24mm CMOS sensor
  • 7360 x 4912 pixel (L), 5520 x 3680 px (M), 3680 x 2456 px (S) resolution settings

  • 51-point multi-cam AF system (20% more sensitive compared to D700)
  • 3,2 inch, 921,000-dot rear LCD
