I didn't like the XA when it first came out. It just looked too flimsy. A neighbor bought one, against my advice. It broke a few weeks later and she asked me to bring it to the cmaera stor I worked at part-time, not the store where she bought it. For occasional delicate use I'm sure an XA is capable of good results. It certainy has an elegant design and the person who designed it, Maitani, just died. For more constant use an old Nikkormat wil be far more reliable. When I got married, almost 20 yars ago, there were two photographers at the wedding. One has a Bronica ETR and the other a Hasselblad. Most of the album photos were 8X10" with some cropping. The Bronica and Hasselblad photos were equally good. Once you get past a certain level of quality it's the skill of the photographer which is the important factor. Various camera types can be used to photograpoh a wedding. If you make sure the equipment is in working order and practice using it before the wedding you will save the bride and groom and yourself a lot of grief. It doesn't hurt it bring a back-up camera and flash either.
