The smallest camera I own

A few shots today from my new (to me) Olympus XA3 which I acquired a month ago. I’ve shot three rolls with it so far and the results from each have been pretty impressive. It’s a low-frills camera, but it makes up for it with a sharp lens and tiny form factor – a benefit both in its portability and also because the film transport is so short that I’ve gotten 39 shots a roll from it each time!

The photos from this first roll were made on a walk around the edge of the city centre and intended mostly to test the camera for oparating problems / light leaks etc. (of which there are, thankfully, none) so expect a bunch of slightly randon pictures of buildings and anything else that caught my eye on the day in coming posts.

  1. The XA cameras are great. I have the XA2 which is basically the same thing as the XA3 with small differences. I like how quick it is to use–no exposure adjusting, no waiting for autofocus, just three focus zones. And even though there’s no realistic way to use filters, they take great black and white shots!
