Picked up an XA2 froma second hand shop for $5! Giving it a go with Ilford HP5.. it operates quite similarly to my LC-A so interesting to compare. It captures some nice contrasty shots in low light.. and will shoot at 800ASA so I might push a roll of 400 one stop and see what happens shooting at night / indoors. Biggest design flaw - the shutter will fire with the cover shut, thus, a few blank shots!! (perhaps this is not a design flaw, but a repair job?) Otherwise a nice simple camera with a cool aesthetic, I like it! #olympus #XA2 #olympusXA2 #Ilford #HP5 #streetphotography #blackandwhite #newcamera
