Olympus XA 2 35mm Point and Shoot Film Camera

Get ready to add a touch of vintage charm to your photography adventures with the Olympus XA 2, the cute compact point-and-shoot that's more than just a camera—it's a stylish statement! Produced between 1980-1986, this little gem is the simplified sibling of the pro-quality XA, offering you a blend of simplicity and top-notch performance.

Let's spill a little secret, shall we? The sharp, contrasty Zuiko lens of the XA2 is a powerhouse, quietly outperforming many point-and-shoot cameras out there. Between you and me, we think it might even be sharper than the original XA, but let's keep that under wraps.

But this isn't just a trip down memory lane; it's a chance to own a piece of photographic heritage. Our expert team restores, tests, and cleans each Olympus XA 2, ensuring that despite its age, your camera performs as flawlessly as it did during the summer of 1980. It's not just a camera; it's a time machine that transports you to moments captured with soulmates, puppy dog eyes, and the sunsets marking the end of college days—straight out of the box.

This pocket-sized wonder is tailor-made for those inspired street shots or impromptu moments that demand a touch of fun and creativity. Slip it into your purse, backpack, or back pocket, and you're armed and ready to capture memories in style.

But here's where the fun decisions come in—your Olympus XA2 can come with (or without) the flash attachment. It's all about complementing your unique shooting style. Planning to light up indoor parties or explore low-lit environments? The flash is your vintage film feel companion. Craving something more compact? Ditch the flash, and you've got a camera that effortlessly slips into your pocket or bag, always ready for action.

When it comes to the Olympus XA2 35mm film camera, you can’t go wrong. Don't forget to put on a camera strap before you walk out the door! (PS we sell straps too!)

How We Grade Our Cameras

We restore, test, and clean all of our cameras to ensure that despite its age, your Cute Camera works as well as it would have if purchased it in 1976. This means that you’ll be able to capture your soulmate’s smile, your puppy dog’s eyes, or the sunset of your last day at college – straight out of the box. 


A "very good" body will have minimal signs of wear and tear. Examples include slight impurities like  worn leather or metal, signs of age on the bottom plate, and dull marks. 


A “good” body will also look nice but have some additional potential cosmetic wear such as spots with discoloration,  worn down metal or small scratches somewhere on the body.


An “average” body will be a more severe case of cosmetic wear like more extreme discoloration or worn down metal, exterior or interior black
specs, deeper scratches, or lines in the eye prism.


We want you to love everything about your new camera. From its vintage design to its perfect imperfections. But if you don't, we make returns as easy as possible.

Quickly becoming my favorite camera!

I am absolutely STUNNED with the sharpness and clarity of the photos I got with tiny little thing! When they call this camera a powerhouse in the description, they’re not exaggerating. It is SO worth the money, no matter what you have in mind. As a side note, if you’re into street photography, this camera would be perfect for you. It’s so small and discreet, plus the shutter sound is very quiet. But it’s an all around great camera - I cannot recommend it enough!

Tom Kirkendall
Olympus is a winner.

Fun camera! Takes a second or two to get use to the zone focusing but it is accurate, the images are focused and SHARP. I used the flash outdoors and it was spot on. Have not used it indoors yet. Exposures were consistent and easy to print.
