1600-speed (and such) film season is marching toward us. I've been having a great time with my Olympus XA2 since the middle of last year, especially when I went to Nanjing. It's everything I need in a pocketable camera (half-frames like the various Olympus Pens are lovely too, but geez it takes an age to finish a roll!), but I had this nagging itch about ISO 800 not quite being enough. What to do?
You go and find an XA3 going cheap, of course. Mine cost me all of $40 (before postage, sadly). It adds ISO 1600, and DX (auto film detection - I could do without it, really). Fuji Neopan 1600's coming out a winner in it, so much so that it may well be the only type of film I'll use in this camera. I can always use the XA2 for, y'know, colour film - I'm expecting grand things from a single roll I have of Fuji Provia 400X, in fact.
There's more to see from my Olympus XA3 over on flickr.

I may not (so far) run the kind of blog that posts social conscience linkage - other friends seem to have it covered better than I could manage (yes, I'm aware that's no excuse), but this doesn't mean that I don't care about the State of ThingsTM.
