    No digital manipulation except resizing.

    I had one of these in college. Lost it. Bought another on ebay about 10 years ago, but rarely used it. I'm really enjoying this great little camera again!

    Outstanding! How did you do this? Straight or use the backlight +1.5 button?



    I went from owning one XA, to three! One is a parts camera in case the other two fail. I use them all the time! One has 50ASA the other 400. Such a joy of a camera!

    These were all straight shots on Kodak BW400CN rated at ISO 200, C41 process and scan. No filters. I find I get better contrast with this film rated one stop over... So I guess it's kind of like using the backlight +1.5 button for each shot.

    I love the XA series, absolutely amazing cameras they are! I always have either my XA or XA-2 with me. They never disappoint me, the results are always excellent.

    I have one in my pocket every time I hike or bike. The lens is a wonder. Much easier to carry than a SLR.

    Amazing that you get very nice separation between the sky and the clouds, without using a filter.

    For comparison with the XA, here's a shot taken about the same time with my Pentax 645N and FA 45-85 lens, on Velvia 50, Precision Camera, Austin - process and scan. I think the XA holds up well, especially considering it was shot on a monopod and the pentax was on a tripod.

    I still wonder how you manage to get the seperation between the sky and the clouds with XA + BW400CN?
