Best travel camera ever made IMHO. And the XA2 may be even better!

Here's a few of mine. I haven't used this camera as much as I thought I would.

I still haven't gotten an XA shot that blew me away but I'm like a few shots from my first roll with the XA4. If anyone finds this too off topic for the thread, let me know and I'll remove this post.

Brian, the XA4 has grown on me as well. I think it's appropriate for this thread.

looking out my window by andre dos santos, on Flickr

OK, not the greatest photo but i took this one handed with the camera sticking out of the window and pointing down on a windy night. Exposure was something like f/2.8 @ 1/8

I travel into Russia, Ukraine, UK and Mongolia quite often and always pack either my XA, XA2 or XA3 which I recently picked up. Wherever I go it goes with me and hasn't let me down ever. The first shot was taken in Truskavets, Ukraine on an XA2 and the second two taken in London on an XA3.

No more than $30. People try to sell them for much more, but you can find a good one if you're patience and scour the auctions or craigslist.

To tell you the truth, the quality of this camera is mediocre. The components are often prone to failure. The finder patch can hardly be described as bright or punchy. My shutter button sometimes doesn't want to move. The winding-lever doesn't always spin, even when the film is loaded properly. The images it puts out are sometimes described as 'soft'; especially at the edges...

But when it does fire, it almost always produces a picture worth looking twice at.

I guess I'm lucky. My XA has seen steady work since it was bought brand-new in 1980 and it's been a trooper ever since that first day.

+1. That describes mine pretty well, too. Never had any trouble w/ it.

Yeah, the XA isn't a Leica, but a Leica doesn't fit into the front pocket of my jeans, which is why so many of my great shots have been taken with my XA - it was there, and my other (bigger) cameras weren't!

Neopan 400. A little bit grainy due to the fact that the Tmax-Dev was expired a little bit.

I just got one of these puppies on Friday and took it out on Sunday morning loaded with a roll of HP5+ to test it out. It's a keeper.
