Uber cool design, years ahead of its' time!
This is one great camera. The XA is the world's most compact rangefinder film camera, and is a joy to shoot with. I have read all about other compact cameras, like the Lomo compact automat, but none hold a candle to the XA. My photographer friend likes his XA so much that he has held off buying a Leica. He has used his for years. He takes it around with him like i take my sketchbook everywhere. The great thing about this camera is that you can fit it in your pocket AND take your sketchbook too! All of the photos in my gallery section were shot on this little delight of a camera.
