an “Art” Movie starring 2 Cats in a vintage store 粉紅貓古著店貓短片創作 (Olympus PEN)

I’m not a BIG fan of Olympus PEN, though many of my human friends are (especially those young girls). It’s the “Weekend Weekly” magazine editor told me she borrowed a Lite PEN (E-PL3) from Olympus and asked whether I was interested to take it for a 1-week trail. Why Not? Almost at the same time, one of my friends who runs a vintage Store in Central said, the lovely tiger-striped cat at his store just born 4 new babies. So I suddenly came across a funny topic for my column, that is “Using lite PEN to shot little baby kitten” !

I was not writing a camera review article, but I have to say here the “tilt screen” function of E-PL3 is very useful when I used it to shoot cats at very low angle (close to the ground). Its light weight and small size also made me be able to shoot photo or video with one hand. See, below are photos and two very short “art movies starring cats using this little camera. WOULD I buy a PEN? Sorry, don’t get the money … :(

我不是Olympus PEN的粉絲,雖然身邊很多人類朋友是,特別是女孩子。不過是上星期《新假期》的編輯跟我講,她剛向Olympus借了一部輕巧版PEN E-PL3,問我有否興趣借去玩一個星期。有新機玩當然無問題啦!同一時間,一個在中環開古著店的朋友說,他店內那隻非常可愛的虎紋貓生了小貓。於是我忽然想到以此作專欄題目,就是「『輕巧』PEN影BB貓」。

雖然不是寫試用報告,但真的要在這裡讚一讚此機的「可反80度角觀景屏幕」功能非常有用,尤其是以超低角度﹝貼地﹞拍貓時候。另外因為機身輕、細,我單手也可拿著相機拍攝相片及短片,另一隻手可用來打燈。看看,下面就是我用這部細小相機拍下的相片及甚有藝術味道的貓貓短片 … 會買這部機嗎?沒有多餘錢啊 … :cry:

an Audiophile album singer who sings new songs ~ Philip Wei 唱新歌的發燒碟歌手─韋雄

Audiophile singers like to sing cover versions of those big-hit songs. I guess one of the reasons is, it could give the listeners a standard or reference to make comparison, well, between voices of different singers. Philip Wei just released a new audiophile album titled “Phil/Harmonic“, most of the songs in the album are new songs. “Though I learned singing at young age and have sung lots of songs (Cantonese version) for several Disney cartoon movies, I always treat myself as a pop singer. The word audiophile just means this album ‘s production quality” said Philip. Touch the sound buttons below could hEAR him talking more about his new album.

那些發燒碟歌手都喜歡翻唱一些經典舊歌。我估原因之一是,那些音響發燒友想有一個標準或者參考,去比較不同演繹者的聲音。不過,韋雄剛推出的新碟《Phil/Harmonic》,十四首歌之中只有兩首是舊歌。雖然韋雄在加拿大讀書時,已和好友莊冬昕一起跟杜麗莎學唱歌。回港後認識了香港著名音樂製作人陳少琪,在他錄音室內幫忙,期間亦唱過很多迪士尼卡通的廣東話版本歌曲。所以他一直當自己是流行歌手,因此自然要唱新歌。「發燒碟」只代表了唱片的製作質素。「點選」下面的聲音鐽,便可聽到他親自講解此碟的製作過程 …
