    Default Olympus XA

    hey guys, I just inherited my mother's Olympus XA, yup, the 1979 FIRST version. It has quite a bit of fungal growth on th lens though. ANy ideas where I can get it fixed up? Any recommendations? Thank you! =)

    u can try those 2nd camera shops. maybe they provide such cleaning service. there's a shop at basement of Adelfi call P & G Photographic Centre, the shop cleans lens fungus so maybe they also clean cam bodies. go check them out.

    can also try TCW (The camera workshop)... they do repairs for rangefinders, and i also saw a few XA2's there.... i think they may also have the A11 flash there too

    hi RudyTT, did u get it fixed?

    i heard the XA is one of its kind, the first idiot cam to use a F2.8 Zuiko lens. the XA2 used the F3.5 Zuiko instead. if u can find the A16 flash, it wud be a better buy compare to A11, mainly higher flash power & faster recharge.
