Please ask if you need them now. This is a superb little camera for a street photography and in some ways better than the very popular MJU2 or MJU1. It's part metal feels more solid, has a better flash (A11) and it does feel nicer in the hands and is not as plasticky as the MJUs.
It does not autofocus but it works in 3 pre-focused zone modes which is better for a street shooter also its practically silent and you can remove or defeat the flash. This XA3 is in pretty good condition. It has normal signs of use with no cracks or ugly scratches. Lens is clean has some internal dust but there is nothing that would affect a final photograph.
The light seals in a film chamber are a bit sticky and could do with some diy but the camera is light proof and there are no light leaks. Battery check, self timer, everything works as it should mechanically. A11 flash, original strap, leather/leatherette? Please check the high resolution photos below of the actual camera for sale for cosmetic condition (most important part of the description - there are more photos to show the condition of the item).
Here are some comments about the camera XA2 very positive and the same as the xa3 except the xa3 has dx coding, slightly easier film loading. A 1.5 stop backlight facility. And can be used for film upto 1600 iso.
This is a story about love! Untainted love, a love so strong and pure.. Oh man, Ive got to stop this gushing.
Just concentrate and get down to the basics about why I came to love this tiny lump of glass and plastic. The Olympus XA2 is the third in the line started by Yoshihisa Maitani. After the amazing Pen series of cameras, after the outstanding Pen F SLR and the undying OM series, Maitani San wanted to create the ultimate pocketable 35mm full frame camera. My camera of choice is the Olympus XA2. Wonderful sharp lens, smooth operation, near completely silent operation and so small I can stick it in the front pocket of my (tight) jeans....
The camera to carry everywhere. A little more automatic than the XA, less expensive and more plentiful. Don't leave home without one.The Olympus XA2 was honoured with the top award out of 2,791 entries in the 1981 Good Design Mark Competition sponsored by the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Association. It was selected as the single item most representative of the ultimate level of precision technology in Japan. Touch it and you'll know why. The Olympus XA2 is the most Barnack camera ive ever owned.
And on and on, basically it's a great camera. Any questions, drop me a line. Thanks a lot and happy shooting!
