I’ve acquired another XA2! I say another because I had one years ago, and traded it in for something or another. This one I found in a charity (thrift) shop with it’s instructions wrapped around it for £5. I could not test it as there were no batteries so I took the chance, got it home, popped in a couple of KS76’s and hey presto – seems fine.
I’m not going to do the usual run of specs and review it, Jim Grey over at “Down the Road” has done a much better job of that than I could, so I recommend you have a look here: https://blog.jimgrey.net/2012/08/23/olympus-xa2/ his results with it are amazing too!
Anyone who reads this blog will guess what’s coming here – yes I popped another of my out of date films through to test mine. I assure you my mixed bag of out-of-date films is nearing an end, so I will have to go out and do some “proper” photography before long! Anyway – below are a few results..
I always seem to want to twiddle with the focus on these cameras, and I think I’ll get more successful shots if I just let the camera alone – I’ll try another roll at some point.
