This Voigtlander was built in the early 60s, and still takes great photos. Here’s a few I snapped in Afton Canyon out in the CA desert on my way back from Las Vegas last week.
Last week while I was out in Las Vegas, I took a little detour out to the Hoover Dam. I hadn’t been since I was a kid, and since then they have built the huge suspension bridge that towers over the dam. This little point and shoot produces much sharper images than I had expected.
The XA3 is almost identical to the XA2, except that it can read DX coding on film cartridges, and there is a Backlight Compensation feature(and maybe a few other differences that aren’t quite as obvious. Here’s some photos I took this week in Las Vegas while out here for work.
I went to Vancouver for work recently and took a few cameras along with me… one was the Olympus XA, which is an awesome rangefinder packed into the body of a simple point and shoot. This is the first roll of film I have developed shot with this camera, an I am in love. I think I have a new favorite!
Camera: Olympus XA
Film: Fujifilm Superia XTRA 400ISO
At most Flea Markets I go to here in Los Angeles, there is a seller with a big box full of old slides. Most of which seem to be from forgotten family vacations from yesteryear. I always get lost digging through the piles imagining who took them and when they might have been taken. So instead of just keeping them to myself and leaving them in their bins t the flea market, I will start picking out a few to bring home and share with you here on my blog.
