I am not the biggest fan of the XA's shutter button, so when my DVD player broke and I tore it open (like I always do when electronics break), I found these little buttons inside of it. I then desoldered one from the circuit board and took out the XA's shutter botton mechanism and soldered the DVD player's button to the two wires that control the XA's electronic shutter system:
Works like a charm, it is much better than the original shutter button and I believe I can hold the camera much more steady now. Cut a hole in some electrical tape and that is what keeps it snug and dry.
Thought I'd share a mod for all since it seems the XA is all over this forum of late
