Olympus XA – own one, havent really used it though… the rangefinder sucks too much to be used for anything serious, although it does have a pretty fast f/2.8 lens… size is great though, quite pocketable

  1. A trick that I use on my XA is to cut a little square of gaffers tape that is the same size as the little range finder window and then place it in the center of the viewfinder window. This will black out the ‘overlap’ in the viewfinder while still keeping the second image. Focus is the same but it feels *much* brighter.
