    Does a Canonet QL17 GIII count as P&S? That's what I use with great results.

    There are still quite a few people manufacturing 35mm point & shoot compacts such as Fuji, Samsung, Canon, Konica Minolta, Rollei, Halina etc etc. You can't really go wrong with any of them and if you want to get one for next to nothing and in nearly new state then you will find literally hundreds for sale on ebay. And after Christmas there will be even more as people who've been given a digital compact rush to unload last year's 35mm compact on ebay!

    As has already been mentioned, there are a ton of inexpensive P&S cameras on the market. My only concern is how good of a lens you will (or won't) get at the $50 price point.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Nikon L35 AF

    I have picked up a few of these absolutely wonderful cameras for just a few bucks at thrift stores.

    Of course it might take some looking to find one.

    Rollei USA is selling off a couple of their Prego models. You can buy new directly for about $75.

    You also should check out your local Ritz store. Some are selling off P&S cameras at very cheap prices. In general, most should give you photos of adequate quality.

    Hands down...Olympus Stylus Epic!!! I almost sold mine as some of you know right here on APUG. I'm glad I didn't. To me, it is the best compact 35mm made.

    Buying a 'sleeper' for under $20

    The Epic is indeed a good camera for the price.

    But one camera I have from the 80's that matches it in picture quality is the first Nikon OneTouch (fixed lens, not the later zooms). These can be had for $5 to $10 on EBay, and the excellent condition ones are a steal. Camera was made back in the days when P/S cameras hadn't yet miniaturized too much, so it's not shirt pocketable. But it's got a nice heft to it - there must be a lot of metal inside or thicker-than-normal plastic. It has a very good 4-element lens and a larger flash than the Epic. Runs on AA batteries.

    Back to the Epic: As mentioned by a post above, the Epic has a bias toward wide apertures and fast shutter speeds. It's therefore best to use it with 400 ISO films to ensure adequate DOF in case the focus is slightly off.
