    It would probably be the other way around; I'd shoot a high contrast slide film with the aperture wide open. The image you linked to looks cross processed, which I think increases contrast as well.

    You could mechanically introduce vignette by adding a home-made vignetter (like a lens hood). Just figure out your field of view and attach a black paper tube around the lens, sized to slightly obstruct your field of view. May take some trial and error but that's a way you can introduce vignette.

    perhaps shoot normal and burn the corners when you print the negative. this way you can induce the kind of vigneting is more appropriate for your subject.

    Yup I would say that too! Burning the corners isn't difficult if you do your own darkroom. If you get your print by giving it to the lab very likely that they won't print it optically any way so you can get vignetting easily by doing the scan yourself, photoshop it and give it to the lab. No quality lost, actually I think you get better quality scanning it yourself.

    Coverage of the film plane ....

    goes up as the lens is stopped down, doesn't it? I'm betting wide open, if yours will do it at all.

    I have not noticed significant vignetting with the XA. However, my XA2 vignettes very strongly, as well as being VERY contrasty. I thought at first that the meter was underexposing by 1/3 to 1/2 stop. But after experimenting with the exposure, it does not appear to be the meter. It appears the lens is just very contrasty (even for a Zuiko) and prone to vignetting.

    I've become curious enough to look for another cheap XA2 to see if this was typical for the model.

    XAs are known to vignette at the widest setting, f/2.8. Try that and see how your shots turn out.
