Los mejores productos del año

Compratir

La guerra en Ucrania y las crisis energética y económica se desvelan si observamos las novedades de este 2022 que ya se acaba. Entre los mejores productos del año encontramos novedades irrelevantes y tecnologías ya vistas en modelos anteriores. Personalmente, destaco la apuesta de Leica por retomar la fabricación de una leyenda como la cámara Leica M6, una joya de la mecánica del formato película de 35mm. El renacimiento de la fotografía analógica ha llevado al mito alemán a ser el primer fabricante que compagina en su factoría píxeles y haluros de plata. ¿Se atreverá alguien más?

Mejor cámara: Sony A7 IV

Un sistema de enfoque automático realmente inteligente, que aprende mediante inteligencia artificial. Una calidad de imagen soberbia. Máxima velocidad de procesamiento. Las prestaciones de la Sony A7 IV la sitúan en el elitista club de las cámaras profesionales. El precio es más asequible que los buques insignia de Canon, Nikon y la propia Sony, donde es capaz de plantar cara a una bestia como la Sony Alpha 1. La A7 IV es además la cámara más versátil del mercado, capaz de satisfacer las necesidades de profesionales y aficionados exigentes en cualquier ámbito fotográfico. Por todo esto merece estar entre los mejores productos del año y –en mi opinión– convertirse en la mejor cámara de 2022.

Los mejores productos del año: Sony A7 IV

Mejor objetivo: Sigma 20mm ƒ/1.4 DG DN ART

La excelente calidad óptica de este angular extremo Serie ART, una luminosidad muy elevada y un precio sensiblemente más asequible que los originales Leica y Sony hacen que el objetivo Sigma 20mm ƒ/1.4 DG DN ART se convierta en el mejor objetivo del año. Su elevada resolución lineal y la corrección de las aberraciones cromáticas lo convierte en una óptica idónea para astrofotografía. Un contraste medio-alto incrementa la sensación de elevada calidad óptica. La respuesta del sistema de enfoque automático es rápida, precisa y extremadamente silenciosa. Construido en metal, aporta mayor sensación de durabilidad y resistencia en las manos que los objetivos fabricados en polímeros plásticos.

Sigma 20mm ƒ/1.4 DG DN ART

Mejor cámara profesional: Leica M11

El fabricante alemán ha desarrollado una cámara robusta, con una mecánica perfecta y que ofrece una calidad de imagen soberbia. Heredera de un mito en la fotografía analógica como la legendaria Leica M6 (reeditada por la forma germana), la Leica M11 mantiene las esencias de la Serie M de Leica: enfoque manual por telémetro y ser una cámara para disfrutar de la fotografía, como ningún otro modelo digital permite. Cara y poco ergonómica, la Leica M11 es un rara avis entre docenas de cámaras que son pura electrónica y mantiene ese toque romántico que sólo Leica sabe dar a sus cámaras.

Mejor objetivo full frame: Canon RF 135mm ƒ/1.8 IS USM

Idóneo para el retrato, la fotografía de moda y la deportiva, el teleobjetivo Canon RF 135mm ƒ/1.8 IS USM incorpora un diseño nuevo en Canon. Nunca antes el gigante nipón había ofrecido una luminosidad tan elevada en un teleobjetivo de 135mm. Nativo para la montura R de las cámaras sin espejo de formato completo de Canon, ofrece una elevada resolución lineal, un contraste medio-alto, una excelente respuesta del sistema AF y sellado contra polvo, humedad y salpicaduras.

Los mejores productos del año: Canon RF 135mm ƒ/1.8 IS USM

Mejor cámara APS-C: Nikon Z fc

La nostalgia por los tiempos en que Nikon se labró la fama de ser el mejor fabricante japonés de cámaras de 35mm inspira cada línea den el diseño de la Nikon Z fc. Basada en el concepto de las cámaras réflex Nikon FM y Nikon FE de los años 70-80 del pasado siglo, es la cámara sin espejo de formato APS-C más interesante del año. Se aparta del concepto clásico de cámara digital y se acerca al diseño analógico, mucho más fotográfico y menos electrónico. El dial de velocidades de obturación es idéntico al que montaba la Nikon FE3, una de las ultimas réflex analógicas del mito nipón. Con una resolución de 20,9 Megapíxeles, la Nikon Z fc ofrece las sensaciones más fotográficas entre las cámaras de gama no profesional.

Los mejores productos del año: Nikon Z fc

Mejor gimbal: Zhiyun Weebill 3

Del tamaño de una hoja A4, el estabilizador Zhiyun Weebill 3 hereda la tradicional calidad de la gama Weebill. Incorpora un micrófono con cancelación de ruido y un iluminador led con una potencia de 1.000 lúmenes. El nuevo diseño Sling 2.0 incorpora tres facilidades al usuario: elcuerpo en forma de L permite colocar el gimbal sobre una superficie lisa incluso sin trípode; la nueva empuñadura reposicionada y extensible (disponible por separado o en el kit Combo) ofrece un 40% más de soporte a la muñeca, transfiriendo el peso del gimbal al brazo, y el oportuno soporte para la muñeca (disponible por separado o en el kit Combo) hace mucho más agradable el manejo del gimbal. O¡frece un peso de apenas 1,12 kilos y posee una autonomía de hasta 21 horas.

Conclusión

Éste año 2022 que acaba no será recordado por sus novedades fotográficas. Ninguna novedad en cámaras de formato medio, ni de iluminación. Si el año pasado fue parco en el número de novedades, al menos fueron interesantes. No ha sucedido así en 2022, pues salvo Sony, el resto de fabricantes han presentado variaciones sobre un mismo tema, ya conocido. Éste ha sido el caso de Fujifilm, que presentó la X-H2, la actualización del modelo peor valorado en la historia de la Serie X. Los problemas en fabricación de la cámara Fujifilm X100 V y de la película fotográfica (en pleno auge de la fotografía analógica) hacen del 2022 uno de los peores años recientes para Fujifilm.

Los mejores productos del año: Leica M6

Leica merece una mención aparte, no sólo por sus modelos digitales. Retomar la fabricación de la Leica M6 es la demostración que el renacimiento de la fotografía analógica es más que una moda pasajera. Es regresar a la esencia de la fotografía. Es abandonar el concepto de una cámara fotográfica como un simple electrodoméstico. La banalización de la fotografía (la mayoría se hacen con el móvil), lo efímero de las cámaras digitales y vender “viejas” tecnologías como nuevas han empujado a una parte de amantes a la fotografía a rescatar viejas cámaras de 35mm. También Pentax anunció hace unas semanas el desarrollo de cámaras analógicas de 35mm. ¿Será 2023 el año más analógico del Siglo XXI?

    I believe everything wrote made a great deal of sense.
    However, think about this, what if you added a little content?
    I am not saying your content isn’t solid., but suppose you added something that makes people desire more?

    I mean Los mejores productos del año – Photo-Review is kinda vanilla.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create
    news headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a related video
    or a pic or two to get readers interested about what you’ve
    got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.
