Anyone have an XA4 to round out the set ? Black - my old XA - I've had for over 20 years. Blue XA2. Red XA3....

Why do I seem to be collecting "non-collectable" cameras?

Well, since it's non-collectable, you won't have any problem releasing the blue one to me then... ;)

You must have a red one already!

Unfortunately the Blue one is in worse condition than the others! It has a little more wear and doesn't fire the flash, the flash is ok on the others. I will try to run some film through it in the next couple of days to see if it works ok.

So, you probably wouldn't want it anyway!

Yes they are, the Red XA3 seems to be pretty rare and this one is in great shape. Still not collectible, but as said earlier - cute!

My wife's favorite was a black XA2, but alas it finally died. The film advance wouldn't anymore. Hated to see that camra go, for we took 100s of photos of our girls and great ones at that.

Darn my test turned out 50/50! The Red Xa3 is very nice and sharp, but the Blue 2 has problems- shots are very flat and washed out - I don't think it is light leaks, maybe the meter is shot.

Does gettng a good one and putting good innards into this one sound possible? XA2s are going pretty cheap.

Below is the XA2 (left) compared with the XA3 - any help in diagnosis is appreciated!

Gray would be nice - I heard there may be Green ones - but I haven't seen one
