Olympus XA

My Olympus XA haven't used it in years. It was one of the smallest rangefinder cameras ever made. Comes with a  very fast f2.8 lens and excellent lens resolution between f8 and f16.

Photographer's market

As a freelance photographer, I am always looking for new clients, and this is my guide.  It's a great resource for growing \my businesses. This edition contains the most comprehensive and up-to-date market contacts for working photographers today: magazines, book publishers, greeting card companies, stock agencies and advertising firms. I order the paper back version, but a Kindle version is also available.
