    Cell phone cams also have f/2 to f/2.5 fixed aperture lenses. With 400 speed film, most compacts will be using f/16 in daylight. Still less DOF than the cell cam, but getting closer. Anyway for what the
    OP asked for (35mm film, compact size, and selfies with two people at arms length meaning focus at 20" or so) a 28mm P&S would be the best bet. Oly XA-4, Nikon Lite*Touch or 28i, Ricoh GR1 or similar.

    I've had good luck doing one arm portraits of two people with 30mm iphone camera... and I managed to misframe two out of three shots.

    So if I were to shoot film, I'd use a tripod. I'm not sure if it's "the best" compact tripod, but it's the one I use and it's light and has a zipper to tie it to posts or round objects. Kind of like gorilla pod with less bulk and weight.
