Some pictures from the XA4

I got the XA4 with the idea to have a wide lens to complement my fixed 40mm RF cameras, when on the streets. I was quiet suprised when I got back my first roll from the lab. I pretty much used the camera in a quick and dirty point&shoot style. Film was Superia 100, scans from the 1 hour lab. These pictures are not really special but well, I like this little machine and the lens on it a lot...

...and two more. BTW the XA4 is scale focus and has no RF like the XA. But the XA4 is the only camera of the XA-series that has the 28mm lens.

Nice shots. I love my XA2 but I've thought about getting an XA4 for the wider lens and the shorter minimum focusing distance.

How much do XA4s normally run for? There is only one on ebay right now, NIB with an opening bid north of $80. Is this just a high-priced fluke?

Expect to pay $100 and up for a working/clean one. If you got one for less, count your blessings.

ISO, nice shots, the wide angle makes it a breeze for point'n'shooting style.

$100 is a fair deal for a nice one - they are not that easy to find. I got one here (Trius - a good man!) that was mint and paid about that.

It really is a sweet camera, the wider lens is nice to have. Still not really used to the zone focus yet...
