I’d been on Flickr a couple of years and noticed a fair amount of folks using film cameras and posting their work in film-only groups.
There was a lot of positive information about this tiny 35mm rangefinder and I just could not resist adding one to my collection.
The XA is pocket-sized with great glass and it’s just plain simple to use.
I’d only shot a couple of rolls – Fujicolor Superia 400, Ilford XP2 400 – but the results were awesome.
I could probably replace the light seals, but it works just fine as is. I’ll get out with this little guy in 2020. More black and white than color.
