Can't believe you all are still going on about this. But I have to say that I've bought and used quite a lot of the cameras mentioned in the above posts, and some have their weak points, but all were usable. That's what matters in the end.



And for the all mechanical purists like Huss, no need to get worked up over cheap automatic camera fun. You can find the same kind of action in old non-interchangeable lens rangefinder cameras (and those without rangefinders too). The Ricoh 300/500 series comes to mind quite quickly for capable but cheap today cameras. My favorite small non-rangefinder is a Braun Paxette.



Anyway, the main thing is to find something for little money that makes you happy to use, whatever it is made out of.
