The XA1 is underrated. I started with an XA2 which was a great travel camera in Afruca and super for candid shots because of how it resets the focus when you close the lid. My XA3 was a replacement I inherited after my XA2 electrics finally packed in. Same as XA2 basically though I tape over the DX code on films so I can override the ISO. I bought the XA and XA1 at similar times. The XA was on my wishlist and the XA1 was a bargain. The truth: for me the XA gives a level if control I appreciate in an SLR but do I need it for a compact rangefinder? Whereas the XA1 is a blast. No battery, shivers in a 400 speed, and away you go.No jitters about whether the shutter button will work or not, and great to just have in your pocket. Thanks for the website!

Love the website and all of the information. Totally agree about Fuji color film. I disagree with Ilford being the only BW film. Kodak TMAX or Tri-X are both great films. I almost exclusively shoot TMAX. I\'ve processed hundreds of rolls (myself) and believe that the grain is finer in TMAX with greater range. I like Ilford, but if given a choice it\'s TMAX. Arista Pro 50 is cool stuff, too but I usually use that in the OM-2SP. I recently bought a roll of Kentmere to try.

I bought my first XA in 1989. I collect Maitani designed cameras and use them lots. I have always liked the photographs I can get with an XA. I think the XA2 lens has a better balance of qualities. I currently have Ektachrome 100 in one XA and Fuji Superia 400 in my XA2.

Every film shot on the XA jumps out a MILE when I go through my boxes of contact sheets: in terms of sharpness, contrast and, weirdly, great moments.
