放弃F200EXR,继续我的F31fd

今年二月份,当富士正式推出F200EXR后,我就开始按耐不住动了换机的念头。但当时F200EXR的介绍很大多停留在厂商宣传资料上,真正有价值的评测并不多,因此我决定等到dpreview.com的评测出炉后,再作决定。

目前手中这台F31fd是2007年元旦在香港DC Career入手的。当年的F31fd凭借其独特的高ISO、完备的手动档和超长使用时间轻松的征服了我,让我毫不犹豫的专程跑了一趟香港,只为拥它入怀。在陪伴我两年多的日子里,它伴随着我的足迹从珠三角的深圳、广州、香港、澳门,再辗转到长三角的上海、杭州、黄山、千岛湖,记录下了我在生活和旅游中的每一个细节。也正是通过它,我学会了数码摄影的基本方法和技巧,开始喜欢上了用照片书写生活。

昨天,终于盼到了dpreview.com正式的F200EXR评测,在耐心读完20多页的全文后,我终于决定放弃F200EXR,继续带着我手中的F31fd前行。因为,F31fd的光环实在太耀眼,就连富士自己都很难再次全面的超越它,F100fd失败了,F200EXR虽然有所突破,却也没能创造出与F31fd比肩的辉煌。几乎所有F200EXR的评测文章(包括dpreview.com)都会不约而同的拿它与F31fd作对比,并惋惜的告诉你它们在画质上的差距其实很微小。

When Fujifilm announced its EXR technology at Photokina 2008 it promised high-ISO performance ‘superior to the F31’. It may seem odd that a company would use a two-year-old, out-of-production camera as its benchmark unless you’re aware of the reputation that the F31fd had developed for itself. A combination of a slightly larger sensor, clever sensor technology and carefully balanced noise processing (that smoothed noise without destroying all detail), helped the F31fd set a high-water mark for low-light performance in compact cameras.

…… As a result, the lowly (and imperfect) F31fd has become highly sought-after on the used market. This prompts us to take the unusual step of comparing the F200 EXR to a model long unavailable, not because it’s another camera you might consider going out and buying, but because it stands out as one of the few solid benchmarks in the short history of digital compact cameras……

The F31fd was, for a long time, probably the best performing compact camera we’d encountered for shooting at ISO 800. Fujifilm promised the F200 EXR would improve on that performance, but doesn’t appear to have quite delivered the goods. The F31fd is clearly producing a cleaner image and one that does a slightly better job of retaining fine detail.

最后总结一下,F200EXR最吸引我的优点:

  • 高DR(Dynamic Range)模式,让你不必忍受刻意欠曝带来的噪点就能完整保留亮部细节。
  • 1/1.6 CCD(28-140mm),广角 + 5x光学变焦,浓缩在其苗条的身段中。

放弃F200EXR的主要原因:

  • 相对F31fd的提升幅度比期望中小很多,甚至在ISO800下的噪点抑制效果反而不及F31fd。
  • 没有快门优先的手动选项,而且光圈优先也只有两档可调。这不能不说是一个明显的倒退……
  • 280张照片的使用时间远不能与F31fd的580张相比,为了减小体积,电池削减的太厉害了。

就让我把期待留给EXR系列的后继者吧,但愿F300EXR(?)能给我一个替代F31fd的理由。
