Product Description

Comes in beautifully crafted wooden box with padded interior, so it can be presented as a beautiful gift to your special one. Also, has a hand strap and the powerful and useful A16 flash.
Camera has been tested for functions and works great. It is not film tested.

The Olympus XA3 is really a slightly updated version of the XA2 which has received some useful extra features: backlight compensation setting on the battery test / self timer lever, 1600 ASA manual film speed setting and automatic DX film speed setting if you use DX coded film. The backlight compesation adds about half a stop extra exposure to the programmed setting determined by the camera’s metering system so that when you are photographing a backlit or light background subject the shot is not underexposed.

Any additional questions, please feel free to ask.
