XE-7 beats them all?

Recommended Posts

While XD (I have an XD-5) is an excellent camera, I like the XE series a bit better for several reasons: 1- I like the size of the camera over the compact XD, 2-I find the film advance smoother and the shutter quieter. 3- I prefer the meter needle display in the XE over the LEDs in the XD. My reasons are subjective so you may still find you like the XD better. You may find other features to compare. The XD uses silicon metering rather than CDS on the XE. I never noticed any difference. Sync speed on XD is 1/00 second, but 1/90 of XE. Both cameras can operate without battery at X-snc and at B.

Both cameras are beautifully styled, the XE perhaps excelling with its "vinyl roof" prism housing. Both have simple, classic control systems with just enough automation to make photography simple without having to scratch your head to remember what button does what.
