I seem to be getting a lot of q’s lately asking about less expensive point & shoot film cameras and my answer is always this; as far as point & shoots go, the Pentax Espio Mini is probably your best bet. They’re usually under a hundred bucks, had a great flash that isn’t TOO overpowering, and a nice little lens on it. Its light as hell and usually slips into a pocket.
Bar none, it’s my favourite point and shoot I’ve ever owned. I love mine to death.
