These came out in the 1979. First there was the XA, complete with manual rangefinder focus. These are a masterpiece of optical and industrial design. They make great photos, too.

Brilliant:

  • Close the clamshell and all optics are protected. Open the clamshell and it's ready to shoot instantly. 
  • Flick the level at the bottom of the lens and focus your subject to perfection.
  • Not only are the images wonderful, but the design and styling of these cameras are a joy to behold.
