    I'm not the first to suggest Olympus XA but if you are looking for a camera to keep in your pocket it is a very good choice.

    XA is an excellent choice. Also consider the XA2 for quick action without caring much about focusing. It is a zone focusing camera with three focusing options that takes care of things pretty quick. For more control over your shots XA suits better.
    Both have optics that amaze with lots of sharpness, saturation and contrast.

Many can be had for fifty dollars or less. I've had mine for years and bought it for fifteen dollars with a Minolta Auto 14 flash.
    I have a Minolta HiMatic 7S - excellent camera with outstanding image sharpness. It's my favorite rangefinder in fact, but I wouldn't call it a pocket sized camera. It's about the same size as an SLR with a standard 50mm lens.

    I think egemily is looking for a true pocket film camera that has the look of an older SLR or rangefinder. I remember Canon made a 35mm film point and shoot around 1999 or so that had a retro look - can't remember the name of it however.

    There is also the Olympus LT-1, and Olympus LT Zoom 105. Both a little fat but certainly a cool retro look.

    If it's a jacket pocket that you want to put the camera into along with keys, coins, lint-spreading tissues, pocket knife and other battering impedimenta, you might consider a little folding camera like the Certo Super Dollina II. It protects itself by being a folder, no lens cap to lose or fall off in your pocket leaving the lens at the mercy of your pocket's contents and your greasy finger tips when you reach inside to get your camera out. The range finder is coupled and the view finder corrects itself for parallax when working close up. The lens is a Tessar 2.8/50 rendering sharp negatives good enough for a fair degree of enlargement. They are not expensive either. One went on eBay recently for $80...

    I like the Olympus Mju II (also called: Stylus Epic in the USA).
    See: http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Olympus_mju_II
    It has very good autofocus, trustworthy light meter and easy to handle. It is quick and waterproof.
    And it fits right into any pocket. It has a fixed focus lens: 35mm, f/2.8.
    It can be found as cheap as $30 sometimes.

    I bought mine in 2007 and used it to shoot one image a day. Now I take it along whenever I can't or won't take a (larger) camera with me. I even use it as a real Point&Shoot without using the view finder for a quick shot, when the family is waiting, and with good results!
    Especially in B&W.

    (Preferably with the same styles like the Minoltas SRT and many other film camera of that time)
    The SRT was typical SLR size - and weight, of that time. Olympus released the Pen series to address the size of the body and lenses but at the cost of cutting the already small film format in half. Olympus later released the full frame OM series that provided this small size with a huge viewfinder without sacrificing film size. Pentax M series followed suit and kept the more traditional control layout. The Olympus Epic was even smaller but of course it is as far away from the Minolta SRT style as you can get as it is only has autoexposure.




    So if you're looking for a fully manual SLR like the SRT, I believe the Pentax MX with a 40mm f2.8 pancake lens is the smallest full frame all metal 35mm fully manual SLR combination that may fit a jacket pocket.

    Small, full manual or shutter priority auto, fine lens and affordable.

    Got some great shots on my Minox 35, however, does not have the best reputation for reliability.
