$5 at Goodwill

January 29, 2008

I recently bought a Olympus XA at Goodwill. It is really small, has user adjustable f/stops, and a rangefinder. Hot dang! I have run three rolls of film through it so far, and I must say that I am not super impressed as of yet. But I doubt that I have taken it off of the widest aperture setting yet, which may account for the general unsharpness of the camera. None the less the images have a delightfully large amount of vignetting around the edges just like my ol’ Lomo justa before it sunk to the depths of the Siltcoos river.

Here are couple of my favs.

Pops setting deeks.

Not bad for $5.
