The Olympus XA1 is probably the simplest camera I own. Part of the iconic XA series, it has a fixed focus 35mm f4 lens and automatic battery-free exposure. There is only one setting to worry about – selecting with 100 or 400ISO for the film speed.
This pared-down approach results in a camera that “gets out of the way” when it comes to taking a photo. Look through the viewfinder to compose your shot, then press the shutter button. Nothing else to distract you or think about. And the results – well as long as you don’t get too close, the XA1’s lens produces crisp and contrasty results.
Shot with AgfaVista200 at 100ISO.
