First Post From My Olympus XA
I've had my little Olympus XA for several months now, and I'm very happy with it. One thing that surprised me, even though I've read about it, is the quality of the images.
I've been meaning to post an example, but only recently got access to a scanner.
Here is a pic of a 70's Alfa-Romeo sports racer, taken at the Monterey Historics 2004. Ilford FP4+. I stopped down a decent bit, probably f8 or smaller. A bright sunny day but the car was in shade, so probably 1/125 or 1/60, I guess.
I scanned the 8x10 print at 300dpi, was horrified at the 7MB file (really bogged down my little Apple iBook), then downsized it to appx 112KB to post. I'll post that little image first.
Then I cropped the center from the original 7MB image, creating a 500KB file. I'll post that partial image next. Notice you can read "1/4-3/8 ratchet".
Hope this works - I've never posted images to this forum before.
By the way, I'd welcome critiques on the pic. I took it because it was sort of abstract and graphic, but some people have complained that they can't tell what it is. (You are in front of the car and the rear bodywork has been raised as the mechanics work on the motor).
