    Peter,

    For example,
    I would like to have the darkened corners of the frame. Do you know what setting I would use to achieve this?

    So, I didn't misread your post, you want vignetting? Was the photo you posted shot with an XA?
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Yes, the photo posted was shot with a XA, and I would like to know how I can get vignetting on my XA.

    Hmm? I have an XA and XA2 and I can't honestly say I've tried every combination of settings, but I've never experienced it. I will have to what this thread.

    I heard that you could get it by shooting at F22, but thats a bit hard to do without a ton of light.

    I bought an XA when they first came out and wasn't happy with the amount of vignetting, so I exchanged the camera. It still showed some vignetting, but (interestingly) less than the first camera I had. If you want to really show off the vignetting, use a contrasty film--meaning transparency film and shoot with the lens wide open. The photo above looks like it may have had photoshop or darkroom work, but it may also be due to the contrast of the film and processing. Is that cross-processed? That can also add contrast.

    What I see in the photo is a mis-alined lens, looks more like at shot with a TC and a lens that does not cover the shift.....
    You have a problem with your camera I am afraid...

    Being curious by nature, my XA is loaded, though only with some T-Max 100. The lighting in the backyard is very bright sun with snow on the ground. Took a couple of shots at f22 as well as f2.8 though the latter stretched the meter a bit. I'll have to see what turns out.
