秋风又起

2010/09/26

中秋已过,气温降至一位数之余,树叶亦开始泛黄。今年的夏季特别短,也特别多雨,室友说,是冰岛火山的关系,若干年前的一次火山喷发,也毁掉了欧洲人无限向往的夏天。

今天看了CanonRumors一篇莱卡M9的测评,改变了之前对莱卡的看法。摘抄几句:

“On the top of the camera there is a shutter speed dial, the shooting mode switch and a shutter button. I never accidentally hit anything. Nothing on the back of the camera is required for making images. I’m RARELY ever pressing anything back there.”
(机顶只有模式选择和快门速度,不易误操作。光靠机顶就可以完成拍摄,简单便捷)

“I evolved from zooms to primes over the years. I find zooms to be cumbersome and inconvenient, which is the opposite opinion of what most people I meet think… I have set a 3 lens limit on myself. The camera is about simplicity and that’s what I need to maintain.”
(旁轴相机的重点是轻便,所以我决定最多带三支镜头。这些年来我转用定焦镜头,因为觉得变焦镜麻烦而不方便,虽然这个想法和我遇到的多数人截然相反……)

“The way the sensor is built on the Leica M9 really makes it one of the best solutions for landscape work. There’s no anti-aliasing filter, so images are sharper from the get go. The other thing that makes it a better solution than Canon is you can actually get full frame ultra wide and wide angle lenses that are sharp across the entire image. We Canon users know the wide angle offerings are lacking the perfect solution.”
(没有低通滤镜和旁轴机短镜后距的特性,使得它能拍出比单反更锐利的广角风景照。而且整个画面都锐。)

“The biggest issues I hear about travel photography is size, ease of use and the ability to shoot in low light. The Leica M9 has the first 2 solved.”
(旅行相机三要素:尺寸、易用性、弱光拍摄。莱卡M9解决了前两者。莱卡、蔡斯和福伦达的大光圈定焦镜群解决了后者

“I think people need to stop slamming it for what it isn’t and respect it for what it is, even if it’s not for you. I know there are people out there right now that are looking for this camera and just don’t know it. Or they do know it and the financial commitment is just unreasonable. That’s why more companies need to pay attention to this camera and maybe even make one. Competition is always great for favorable pricing.”
(人们应该停止不实的责备,并尊重M9作为一台优秀的相机。我知道很多人没有意识到它的强大,或者意识到,口袋却不够深。所以更多公司应该关注旁轴相机这个市场,甚至推出旁轴产品。竞争常会带来受欢迎的定价。)

读完整个文章,印象最深的就是作者谈定焦镜。他使用一支15mm超广角拍景,35 f/2拍日常小景,90 f/2拍人像,三支镜已经覆盖多数日常场景。用单反的人,又有多少是常去打鸟、拍运动、拍小虫的呢?看看论坛,很多人追求“小三元”“大三元”镜,有自动对焦就抱怨移焦和对焦太慢,有防抖就抱怨系统噪音,手拿变焦就羡慕定焦的散景,有定焦用又抱怨构图不便…… 我只能说,还多得有不少这样的人,研发成本才能多摊一点,厂商也愿意多拿一些功能面市。

索尼推出NEX系列时,外界呼声很高。然而受到对焦科技、产品定位、原厂镜头的诸多限制,NEX就像近来的A33/55一样,很多买家都甚多不满。Photokina上索尼终于放话,固件升级后用户就能自订NEX的按钮功能,机身操控不再那么“入门”。我想待明后年NEX镜头阵营补全,机身再次演化之时,NEX应该能成为旅行机的首选。在佳能宣布短期内不攻进无反光镜相机市场的情况下,亦只能祝福一下索尼了。有竞争才有好产品吖。
(今天才知道……为什么莱卡镜遮光罩上有个洞咧? 因为放在莱卡机上用的时候,遮光罩会挡住取景窗)
