    Looking for a small pocket sized 35mm camera?

    I want to find a small pocket sized 35mm film camera, that i can take everywhere with ease that is affordable. What are some camera I should look into?

    (Preferably with the same styles like the Minoltas SRT and many other film camera of that time)

    Look no further than the post below.

    I had fiddled around with several little 35mm cameras until I bought my Leica II. That one is now my only pocket 35.

    Pocket camera's that look like a Minolta SRT?

    The Minox 35EL is a well known and very good pocket camera.

    Cliveh is referring to a Kodak Retina IIc, another good smaller camera.

    The Minolta CLE is a very nice smaller camera that is basically a Leica made by Minolta. The bad news is that it's very expensive - well over $500 with a standard lens.

    My favourite pocket camera is probably the Rollei 35. Very affordable.

    I also think the Werra I looks lovely, but never used one.

    Olympus Stylus Epics are compact, discreet, and fast. And cheap.

    A Minolta Hi-Matic 7 series will fill the bill nicely. Small: 4.5 wide, 2.25 deep, 3 tall, light, very sharp lens and anywhere from a few dollars to about a hundred (too much). 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.

    What sort of Minolta SRT-like style do you mean? Do you mean all-manual exposure? Or metal bodies? Or something else?
