揚げ物に関するアメリカン!な心意気/「一眼レフ」を英語で?

久々にゆっくりとした日曜日(って、自分で好んで忙しくしてたんでしょ!)。さっそくお土産でいただいたTostitosのチップス&サルサソースをいただきました。満足。

0605141んで先日、アメリカのチップスのサイズがデカい!という話をしましたが、それに関する写真を撮ってきていたのを思い出しました。スーパーに並ぶチップスの一団です。ここに並んでいるもの全てがポンドサイズ(1lbs.=約450g)ですから、本当に何をか言わんや、ですよね(笑)。ちなみにこの写真では全容を捉えきれていませんが、1列ずっとこのようなチップスが並んでおります。

0605142 これに関連してもう一つ思い出したことが。以前、訳もなく車でミシガン湖を一周したことがあって(特にどこかに長期滞在したわけでもないのに1週間かかりました!)、その時にMackinaw Cityという小さな街に宿泊しました。その街の小さなレストランで夕食をいただいたのですが、オススメがワカサギ(smelt)のフリッターとのことで、「おお、さすがは湖の町」と思って喜んで注文したのですね。

そこで出てきた料理がこちら。フリッターはまあほぼ想像通りだったんで問題ナシ!なんですが、

 揚げ物に揚げ物を合わせるか? (; ̄Д ̄)

その思い切った料理人魂に乾杯(笑)。これぞまさにアメリカン!な心意気なんでしょうね。

いきなりですが、ここで問題。

 「一眼レフ」を英語で何と言うでしょう?

コンパクトデジカメはその性能の向上により一気に普及しましたが、最近では一眼レフデジカメが新たな市場を築きつつあります。基本的な光学性能(取り込み光量が多い、視差がない、等)が優れているため、コンパクトカメラとは別の市場を形成しつつある、といった感じでしょうか。

そういうボンヤリとした知識を持っている方でも、「一眼レフ」という名前の由来をご存じない方も意外と多いと思います(実は私もそうだった)。ところが、これを英語にすると何となくそのメカニズムが分かってくるのでした。

 「一眼レフ」:"Single-Lens Reflex"(SLR)

簡単に言ってしまうと、「反射鏡(reflex)を利用した1つの眼(光学系)」といった感じなのですね。カメラ内の構造まで言及すると大変なので、詳細が知りたい方はNikonさんのウェブサイトを参照ください(笑)。

とまあこれで、ふとアメリカで一眼レフデジカメが欲しくなっても安心ですね!(って、そんな状況あるんかい!(笑))

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!
