Tokyo 2016 on Film – FUJIFILM KLASSE W w/ Kodak Gold 200

FUJIFILM KLASSE W /w Kodak Gold 200

フィルムKodak Gold 200で綴る2016年の冬の東京です。
Kodakらしい色を感じます。冬は湿度も低いので光の通りが良く、解像感高い写真が取れる傾向にありますね。
気がつけばKodak Gold 200も簡単には手に入らないフィルムの一つとなってしまいました。ネットを駆使すればまだ手に入りそうですが、ヨドバシカメラではもう取り扱いもなく気軽に使えるフィルムでは無くなってしまいました・・・。
富士フイルムのラインナップが減っていくのも辛いですが、Kodakのラインナップが減るのもまた辛いですね。


This is Tokyo in the winter of 2016 taken by the film Kodak Gold 200.
The colors are typical of Kodak. In winter, the humidity is low, so the light tends to penetrate better and produce higher-resolution photos.
I noticed that Kodak Gold 200 is one of the films that is not easy to get. It is still available on the Internet, but Yodobashi Camera no longer carries it and it is no longer a film that can be easily used….
It is hard to see Fujifilm’s lineup decrease, but it is also hard to see Kodak’s lineup decrease.

Tokyo Ginza night, 2022

FUJIFILM X100V

夜の銀座をカラーで撮ってみました。ISO1600と感度高めで撮りましたが、綺麗に撮れますね。写真が撮りたいと思って動いた日でした。
銀座の並木通りやその近辺は、看板の明かりはあり暗くはないのですが、ちょっと独特な通りですね。別に危ない通りというわけでもなく。日中と夜のコントラストが大きいエリアかもしれません。
カメラを持って歩くと何かしら絵になる瞬間に出会えるので、時々歩いています。
その時にうまく撮れたり、撮れなかったり。
X100Vは瞬時にダイアルでその時に適した値に調整出来るので、こういう夜の街歩きでは本当に便利ですね。
(そして画質綺麗なことも!)


I took some color shots of Ginza at night, using a high sensitivity of ISO 1600, but they came out beautifully. It was a day when I moved because I wanted to take pictures.
Ginza’s Namiki-dori Avenue and its vicinity is not dark because of the lights from the signboards, but it is a somewhat unique street. It is not that it is a dangerous street. It may be an area where there is a large contrast between daytime and nighttime.
I sometimes walk around with my camera, because I have a chance to some picturesque moments.
Sometimes I am able to take a good picture, sometimes not.
X100V can be instantly adjusted with a dial to the appropriate value for the moment, which is really convenient when walking around town at night.
(And the photo quality is beautiful!)

Tokyo Shinbashi nigiht, 2022

Tokyo Shinbashi night, 2022

FUJIFILM X100V

先日夜の新橋を撮影して来ました。引き続き感染者が多い状態ですが、とはいえ居酒屋にそこそこ人いるかな?と思ったら、全くいない訳ではないですが、沢山人がお店にいるという感じではありませんでした。
一方不思議だったのは、ガールズバーの客引きが多い事。新橋にこんなにいたっけ?というくらい、ガールズバーの客引きが多く。やっぱそれまでのお店が撤退したりした事が影響しているんでしょうか。
ちょっとサラリーマンの街新橋の姿が変わっていて、残念にも感じました。


I went to photograph Shinbashi the other night. The number of infected people continues to be high, so I wondered if there weren’t a lot of people in the izakaya(Japanese-style pub), while not entirely absent, it did not feel like there were a lot of people in the bars.

On the other hand, what was strange was that there were many touts to “girls’ bars” (Bar where young women will serve you drinks and just talk acrosss the counter) . I didn’t know there were so many of them in Shinbashi. I had never seen so many girls’ bar touts in Shinbashi. I guess the fact that some of the previous bars had closed down had something to do with it.
I felt a little disappointed to see that the salaryman’s town Shimbashi has changed a little.

iPhone 13 mini detailed review

iPhone 13 mini 詳細レビュー

Detail of iPhone 13 mini

前回は買うまでの長い件だったので今回ちゃんとレビューを。レビューと言っても、大きく何かが変化しているほどでもないので、使用感を中心にお伝えしようと思います。

すでに使用しているiPhone 12 Proとの最大の違いは何よりもサイズです。このサイズが自分の生活にどう馴染むのか?それが気になるところです。


The last review was until I bought it and a long one, so I’m going to give you a proper review this time. I would like to focus on the feeling of using the iPhone 13 mini, since it is not so much that something has changed significantly.

The biggest difference from the iPhone 12 Pro that I already use is above all the size. How will this size fit into my life? That is what I am wondering.

長らく悩んで悩んでいましたが iPhone 13 mini を7月末に迎え入れてました (iPhone 14が目前に迫っているのは知っていてです)。iPhone 12 mini がアナウンスされた時からずっと mini サイズは気になってたのですがどうしても Pro モデルの方に目が行き (カメラ性能的にどうしても…) 、iPhone 12 Pro を選びました。
ただ、やはりiPhone 5 / 5s / SE(初代) のサイズに近い mini モデルはずっと良いなと思って引っ掛かっていました。僕は仕事用とプライベート用で2台持ちなのですが、iPhone 12 Pro と別で iPhone SE (初代) を使っていました。
SEそのものには不満は無かったのですが、使っていたキャリアは、OCN モバイル ONEを使って格安で運用していたのですが、そこに落とし穴がありました。どうも調べてみると「グローバルIPアドレス」を利用した形態となっており、これがバッテリーの消耗を著しく落としていたようです。それに引きずられてどんどん iPhone SEのバッテリー能力も落ち、ちょっと触るとあっという間にバッテリーが減るという問題もあって、まずはキャリア変更を最初に浮かべていました。


I had been thinking long time about how to get the iPhone 13 mini and finally I bout it in the end of July (I know the iPhone 14 is just around the corner.). Since the announcement of the iPhone 12 mini, but my attention was drawn to the Pro model (because of the camera performance…) and I chose the iPhone 12 Pro. ), so I chose the iPhone 12 Pro.
However, I still had my eye on the mini model, which is similar to the size of the iPhone 5 / 5s / SE (the first generation), because I always thought it was better. I have two phones, one for work and one for private use, and I was using the iPhone SE (first generation) separately from the iPhone 12 Pro.
I had no complaints about the SE itself, but the carrier I was using was OCN Mobile ONE, which is a low-cost carrier, but there was a pitfall there. I found out that it was using a “global IP address” and this was draining the battery significantly. This was dragging down the battery capacity of the iPhone SE, and with the problem of the battery draining quickly after a slight touch, the first thing that came to mind was to change carriers.

Jack’s Wife Freda – Asakusa –

Jack's Wife Freda - Asakusa -
 
 

 
スカイツリー近くのミズマチにあるニューヨークにあるレストラン Jack’s Wife Freda です。日本初上陸のお店でやっとチャンスが出来たので行ってみました (今は六本木にも店舗があるようです)。

お店の中の雰囲気はニューヨーク感満載で、ちゃんとインテリアが工夫されていました。更に店員さんも外国人の方で(日本人もいました)、それも海外感を演出してくれていました(日本語でメニュー注文出来ます)。ちゃんと世界観がまとまっていて、日本テイストになっていなかったのが個人的にとても良かったです。この手のお店ではどうしてもどこか日本向けに味付けされて、オリジナル感が損なわれるのですが、ここはそういう感じがほとんどしませんでした。もちろん、椅子やテーブルはもしかしたら日本人に合わせたサイズになっているかもしれません。でも、いかにもで揃えられた感じではなくちゃんと世界観がまとまっている事がとても居心地が良かったです。

頼んだご飯も美味しく少々お値段張りますが、場所代含めてと思えば納得の値段です。
平日のお昼少し外した時間帯だったので、人が少なく快適でした (ミズマチ界隈も人が少ないくらい)。


Jack’s Wife Freda is a restaurant in New York located in Mizumachi near Tokyo Skytree. It was the first restaurant to land in Japan, and I finally had a chance to visit (there is now also a branch in Roppongi).

The atmosphere inside the restaurant was full of a New York feeling, and the interior design was well thought out. The staff were foreign (some were Japanese), which added to the foreign atmosphere (you can order the menu in Japanese). I personally liked the fact that the restaurant’s worldview was well organized and did not have a Japanese taste. In this type of restaurant, the atmosphere is always somewhat Japanese, which spoils the originality of the restaurant. Of course, the chairs and tables may have been sized to fit Japanese people. However, I was very comfortable with the fact that the restaurant’s worldview is not just a typical Japanese one, but rather a coherent one.

The food we ordered was delicious, and although it was a bit pricey, it was a reasonable price considering the cost of the place.
The restaurant was very comfortable and not too crowded since it was a weekday and a little after noon (the Mizumachi area is also not too crowded).
