I got an XA in decent condition (although the RF is VERY dusty and difficult to see through) off eBay.
Although the shutter release and the light meter respond to changes in lighting, ISO setting, and aperture, the indicated shutter speed int he RF seems to be about 5-6 stops slower than it should be based on settings.
For example, pointing my Minolta CLE or Canon ...
Hello there, I picked up an Olympus XA earlier this year, but have been having some issues with my flash.
Whenever I've been in dark situations will my flash it hasn't fired off, I can't seem to figure out the issue. I've tested the flash without film, by holding my finger over the light sensor and it's fired off, and only has it once fired off while the film has been l...
Looking to see if anyone else has experienced this with their Olympus XA. It just started happening mid roll. Every time I go to wind the camera the shutter is tripped at about where you’d expect it to stop for the next exposure. Then it continually is allowed to wind and wind, tripping the shutter ad infinitum. I cannot manually trip the shutter. If I wind the camera wi...
Am looking for a carrying case for my XA 2. 3rd party is OK. Have seen the Red leather ones from Japan and they look very nice but a XA2 is included and the price is somewhere north of $200 US.
I would like a case that has a divider down the middle that would allow the flash to be stored seperately from the the body, any ideas?
I have an Olympus XA that is in perfect working order, but has one problem. A small piece or plastic broke off the bottom of the rewind shaft. It is one of the two small parts that stick out to pull up the metal bracket to open the film door. The film door can still be opened, but only if you turn the rewind knob in the exact correct direction.
It isn't a big probl...
Hi, a day before yesterday i was using my xa2 with a16 and i took few photos, everything was fine. About 2 hours later i took my camera and i tried to take another photo but that orange bulb won't light. I thought my batteries died so i changed them to new but still nothing happens. Earlier i could hear that flash is charging and now its more like noise/buzzing. Can i fix ...
Hi, new to the Olympus XA2 and i'm trying to work out if the one I have is working nicely. This was shot on a bright but cloudy day on Fujifilm Superior 400 with the middle zone focus setting. Is this consistent with sharpness expected of the XA2?
Just spent a day with an XA 2 in very good condition, it's a joy to use.
There is one thing that is irritating and just want to confirm if its common with all XA cameras.
When looking through the viewfinder, its seems as though the image (what you see) is a paled, higher exposed version of what obviously will be captured through the...
Hi, I have two xa2 with fress battery.
One xa2 isnt working right, there is no click when I open the clamshell so it do not power up. Sometime when I push open hard the clamshell, the xa2 is working.
I was wondering if someone already had this problem and could lead me to the solution.
Thanks in adva...
I recently bought one of these from eBay and it seemed to be working but there was a loose piece inside the camera getting in the way of the focus mechanism. I got a refund on the item, but he let me keep the camera. So now I'm trying to fix it.
I managed to open it up and find the piece and where it went, it was the little thing that goes over the light meter and move...
I just started looking at the needle in my XA viewfinder more seriously (never used to) and realised that it seems weird. It never gets above 30 much, and only when I adjust the film ISO to max even though the actual film speed doesn't correspond.
I've read from the internet that out of the 2 cells, one goes into the metering needle and depending on how used ea...
I recently received a XA for christmas and I'm loving it so far, however I have one question regarding the shutter speed when shooting with a flash.
First question: what is the shutter speed when setting the flash to 100 or 400 asa? (I have the A16)
Second question: I assume that the shutter speed is set just like when you shoot without a flash, so depending on the a...
I was shooting with my XA yesterday and the focus ring was a bit stuck. I used a little force to get it moving again then the focus lever just became very loose and I can't see the internal elements move anymore. Did the camera break? If it did is there a way to fix this?
i have an XA with a aperture problem.
I set the focus is at infinite and the aperture at 2.8. Now i set the aperture to 22, but the blades remain open. Now i set the focus to the closest distance and the aperture closes to 22.
Can anyone give me an advise to solve this issue?
I have just picked up a very nice Olympus XA4 for a reasonable price. I have also seen that they did a little fold out diffuser for the flash. I was wondering if there is anyone that can tell me how well it works and if it’s worth hunting for one.
