12 for 2012 – Camera 6

As part of my 'take more photos' goal for this year - I decided that I wanted to use more of the cameras that I haven't actually used before in my collection. I am a little behind on these but I'm catching up and as long as I get 12 cameras done by the end of the year I'll be happy.

I'm quite excited about this camera, the Olympus XA2, I'd seen Angie's photos and review of it and it immediately went on my list of cameras that I wanted to get.


I finally got my hands on one a couple of months ago (thanks Adam!) and I've enjoyed taking it out with me. Here are some my results.


I tried to be quite experimental with the photos I took with this camera, it has a flash so I tried that, I also used it inside without the flash, outside in the rain, outside in the sunshine... I wanted to get a feel for it and when I would want to use it and overall I'm quite excited about it, the flash is a great feature for if you want to capture family moments and I like the results on duller days too. Definitely a contender for regular use I think.

You can see the other cameras that I've used this year here.
