OLYMPUS XA + A11 FLASH SOLD

OLYMPUS XA + A11 FLASH
PRODUCT ID: SF.100813

OVERVIEW

This is the finest model in the XA range – the original and best. It has a high-grade 6 element wide aperture lens (F-Zuiko 35mm F2.8), semi automatic aperture preferred shutter system (featuring aperture priority automation), and 85cm to infinity range finder. And of course the revolutionary capsule design.

The camera is capable of taking extremely high quality photographs – certainly rivaling those from the majority of modern SLRs and many Leica and Contax models. A 35mm lens is probably the most useful focal length for general use – if you need long focus lenses, you are going to have to put up with an SLR with all the weight and inconvenience they bring. The benefits of a camera that can sit in your pocket all day normally far outweigh the lack of long focus lenses and other gadgets.

The rangefinder is what lifts this model above the crowd. If you have used Lecias or other rangefinder cameras you will know how quickly and easy they are to focus. And with such a quiet shutter the camera is ideal for the sort of unobtrusive photography that captures people being people.
