View Full Version : Newbie XA user here

Hi there, I have just bought a nice little Olympus XA and thought I'd join the forums.

I have a question regarding the ISO settings. I understand you can set the ISO from 25 to 800, but the increments for the values in between seem odd.

eg: 25..50..100..200..400..800

Can someone tell me what ISO each dot in between the numbers represents? I have some porta 160NC I would like to use but I'm unsure of which dot in between 100 and 200 to set the lever at.

I hope my question makes sense!

Hello and welcome.

Talk to member here kathytoth.ca

She makes great photos with an Olympus XA, and certainly knows her way round that camera.

Welcome to the RFF. The intermediate dots between 100 and 200 are for film speeds 125 and 160. Happy shooting.
