Olympus XA Kodak 200

5 Frames with Outdated Film and an Olympus XA From the Junk Drawer – By Vicky Ballas

Last summer I cleaned out my son’s camera stash from his high school photography days and found an Olympus XA 35mm, along with an outdated roll of Kodak Gold 200. My photography days were behind me by a few decades, but I recently became a digital beginner via a Nikon D3500 while still practicing my film “skills” with my old Nikon SLR. I was intrigued by the small compact size and unique features of the Olympus so I ventured out to downtown Denver on a hot August afternoon with the small XA tucked into my purse.
