In the early days of the pandemic, I had the not-so original idea of doing more photography shooting through the window of a car as walking around was didn’t seem to be such a wise idea anymore. Thankfully, a couple of months back I had already purchased a near-perfect camera to use for point & shoot while in the car: the Olympus XA3.
Well, what can I say? I fell foul of hype and hyperbole this year and I have learnt my lesson. I own a perfectly good Olympus Trip and a Rollei 35 but no that was not enough! I was heading to Thailand for the trip of a lifetime and wanted to accompany my digital camera with a point and shoot. Instead of using either of the two cameras I have (and am aware of how to use), I decided in a rash moment to get my hands on an Olympus XA3.
Ever since my brother gave me my first camera, a Canon A-1 for all of those wondering, I’ve fallen in love with film photography. At first, I shot exclusively on SLR’s, such as the aforementioned Canon A-1. I didn’t really feel the need to try other cameras, let alone carry a second one around with me.
