四月,我帶走了三卷回憶。

菲林三卷 之一:布魯塞爾

​致麻子及Maarten

During my visit in Brussels, I had the privilege to meet and try this beautiful Contax IIa rangefinder film camera – a treasure my Japanese friend inherited from her grandfather. This model was first manufactured in Germany in the 1950s, and this copy here is paired with a Zeiss Sonnar 50mm 2.0 lens.

這次到布魯塞爾探訪期間,有幸能試用到日本好友祖父留下來的寶物:配搭上 Zeiss Sonnar 50mm 2.0 鏡頭、製於1950年代德國的Contax IIa 旁軸相機。 

This model was designed without any built-in exposure meter. The only guide I had was the Sunny-16 rule. Every photo taken is a product purely of the photographer's experience, the precision of camera mechanism, and the chemical reaction between light and the film.

這個型號的相機是沒有內置測光儀的,所以我只能用Sunny-16法則粗略估計曝光設定。每張相片都可說是純攝影者的經驗、相機的精密機械及光線與菲林間的化學反應的結晶。

This time I was also lucky enough to have a Color Implosion Surreal Colorfilm. The outcome photos are truly surprising. I was amazed by what the camera and I have achieved.

這次亦慶幸用到Color Implosion Surreal Color 菲林,照片出來的效果遠遠超乎我們的期待和想像。 

Inside this timeless camera, memories of ours, once again, collided with our grandfather's.

就在這超越時空的相機裡,我們與祖父們的回憶再度相遇。
