Above: IKEA parking lot, Conshohocken PA. Olympus XA4 + Kodak Tri-X
On a recent trip to the Amish country in Lancaster, PA we stopped at an antique store. As I was browsing the stalls I came across an Olympus XA4 in near mint condition. The XA4 is a rare camera to find and they go for almost $150 - $200 on eBay. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the price - $10.00. I also picked up a near mint Canon Canonet QL17 for $25.00 and promptly flipped it on eBay for $85.00. It pays to know your cameras!
