A couple of weeks ago I picked up a lovely little Olympus XA that I've become enamored with. Sweet 35/2.8 Zuiko lens, genuine (TINY!) rangefinder, in the smallest package imaginable. I even use it for the late-night, waning hour shots at the wedding I photographed last weekend and it was perfect. My mother, back throughout the 80s and early 90s used an XA2 which I remember fondly as does she. Had to pick this thing up - it's even nicer from a photog's point of view. Have only run 2 or 3 rolls through it thus far but it's clear it will become a regular. These were all late night shots on HP5 Plus pushed 1 stop.






I am very fond of my XA. It is an easy camera to learn and use even with my large hands. I even have the (nicer) A16 flash and presentation box. Woo! Hoo!

Something I discovered with these photos is that the viewfinder is a teeny tiny bit wider than the FOV of the lens. Normally not an issue, as I tend to centre compose more often than not with this camera; but I very carefully framed that second one so that everything was in view and yet...

Zeiss Ikon Nettar 517/16.
Novar Anastigmat 75mm f6.3.
Fujicolor Pro 400H.
That's some impressive quality. Makes me want to take another look at that 6x9 Franka-Folder I got first, which also features an f6.3 Anastigmat IIRC, but I'm not sure what kind. Didn't touch it since I got hold of a Voigtländer 6x9 with an f4.5 lens, but I remember that I was pretty pleased with the pictures I took with it. I guess an f6.3 lens is kind of an advantage over 4.5 or even faster when you don't have a coupled and calibrated rangefinder.

In my case, a 1/200 max shutter speed is more of an advantage. I'm often shooting at f11 or smaller because of that.

Quite enjoying the oranges I've been getting out of these rolls of Vericolor. I'll be disappointed when they're all gone.

Lovely color, depth, and composition. Really nice photograph. I love the shape of that tree. It is dancing, and then that horizon and landscape. I'm there. I think Ektar is perfect for that light and atmosphere.
