Soft, Sharp and Saturated
The Olympus XA1 has only 2 film ASA speed setting - ASA 100 and ASA 400. ASA 400 film have light-sensitive materials which are larger in grain sizes when compared to films with slower ASA speed. Though the film requires less light for a proper exposure, photo images and may show up with visible grain. On a typical bright light situation, however, you can get away from motion blur and achieve great depth of field as the fast film speed lets you shoot with a faster shutter speed and smaller aperture.

One of the fun things you can do with the Olympus XA1 is using it to shoot in exposure lock mode. I used this technique on a couple of occasions, got the shots that I wanted and was delighted with the results. What you need to do is first to point the camera at the brighter light source, half-press the shutter release to activate the metering, then turn the camera to frame the composition and take the shot. The shutter button on the XA1 will be locked if the red pop-up flag is activated in insufficient lighting condition.
