    I will echo Chad Hahn's sentiments about the Nikon L35 AF. Excellent five element 35mm "Nikon" lens. A real filter ring. Meter reading through the filter, but not through the lens. Backlighting compensation. Fill flash if needed. This link is Ken Rockwell's glowing assessment of it: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/l35af.htm

    I have had very good results from this really inexpensive little 35. Found mine at a yard sale for a buck.

    The Canonet, while a great camera, is not considered as P&S because you do have to focus manually.

    I love the L35AF, but I REALLY love the Yashica T's. The Tessars are sharp and contrasty and the bodies fairly reliable metering. The original T and T2 can still be had for under $50 including shipping from eBay. If your friend can't wait, though, you can contact me as I have MANY and am still buying 'em up. I can't resist firing off a shot with 'em as I spend 20 minutes getting the LF gear set up!

    I've been pretty happy with a Pentax Espio. Nice lens, not too many controls, small size, etc. I'm sure you can find a used one for your budget.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    What's a good 35mm point-n-shoot for around $50?

    PENTAX WR-90 or WR-105.
    WR = Weather Resistant (down to 5 feet underwater!)

    All the bells and whistles plus that fabulous Pentax SMC multicoated lens.

    I just came back from a week in Spain where I used a couple of compacts a lot, a Minolta Freedom Zoom Explorer (28mm at the wide end of the zoom) and an Olympus mju ii.

    I loved using the mju and the one roll of film I've developed from that camera since I came back has excellent sharpness and the autoexposure is bang on (I used the spot metering facility a lot, though).

    I also have an Olympus XA2 which I like a lot.
