A long time coming, this belated post should have been posted much earlier and not too long after the initial Analog Diary: Squaring the 28mm, Olympus XA4 post. Images were from the same bazaar environment, with this post focussing on the pairs or individuals who were setting their stalls up ready for the crowd that was due. While these images show that the crews are only of the male gender, they are not necessarily so.

Different from the original Olympus XA, the only true rangefinder camera of the series, the Olympus XA4 Macro is fitted with a wide-angle 28mm F3.5 lens with close focus capability, thus the Macro designation, which is at 0.3 meters (12 inches).

Standard with the camera is a lanyard cord that can be used to measure this distance. Flash units are optional between the A11 of the A16 which use 2xAA batteries instead of one as found on the A11.

Keep the notion of the macro mode aside and you will find that the XA4 is a great street shooter as well. Though the lens, at F3.5, may be rather slow, the 28mm focal length lens is perfect for street photography.
