OLYMPUS XA. Not the half size camera like PEN, but compactness is almost same.


I wrote that I bought an new camera on the last of this article. That is this, OLYMPUS XA. The one I bought is the very first model of the OLYMPUS XA. It's only the one which has rangefinder entire the series.

この記事の最後に新しいカメラを買ったって書いた。それがこれ。OLYMPUS XA。自分が買ったのはシリーズで唯一レンジファインダーを搭載している初代モデル。


This camera is really compact. Size is almost same to the OLYMPUS PEN-S, so I can put it into pocket. But there's one big thing that is not same to the OLYMPUS PEN-S. That's unnecessary to mind lens cap. Because the camera itself has a cover that works as lens cap when not taking photos. So I don't need to take lens cap on or off. Instead of that, when taking photos, it's necessary to open the cover, and after it's finished, what I only have to do is to close the cover.

このカメラは本当に小さい。サイズは OLYMPUS PEN-S と同じくらいだから、ポケットにも入る。でも OLYMPUS PEN-S と同じではない大きなことがひとつある。それはレンズキャップを気にする必要がないってこと。カメラ自体にカバーが付いていて、普段は閉じておくことでレンズキャップとして機能してくれる。だからレンズキャップをつけたり外したりしなくてよくって、撮る時は開ければいいし、終わったら閉じるだけでいい。

Beatiful, isn't it?

It's easy to control Bokeh, because of rangefinder.

Thorugh playground equipment.

Lens of this camera seems not to be so good according to a lot of sources though, I don't dislike this.

I loaded second film.

Photos I pasted above are from first film I loaded to this camera though, I've already loaded second film. As I mentioned a bit above, this camera is super handy, so I think I'm getting so many oppotunities using this camera. Woops, Umm, I'd like to go out.
