    Nikon F301 perhaps? Aperture priority & DX override & a flash sync of 1/125. Only real downer is no Aperture indication in the viewfinder. As for cost, I paid £12.99 for a body on ebay recently.

    Konica Autoreflex T3; solid, shutter priority automatic fully mechanical camera from before the days of DX. Depth of field preview, timer release, shutter speed ranging 1/1000 - 1 second + bulb and 1/125 flash synch. Meter is powered by two 1.35v cells that can last for years. Konica Hexanon glass is some of the best out there for 35mm SLR's, the 50mm f/1.7 being just as sharp as the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8.

    Nikon FE/FG/FG20; just as small as the Konica, but with fully electronic shutter. It's an entry level camera in my eyes, but one served my Uncle well back in the 80's.

    It uses ordinary LR44 batteries. Uses Pentax K-mount lenses.
    Or better, the ME Super instead. Manual shutter speeds 4 seconds to 1/2000, 1/125 flash sync, ASA 12 to 1600.

    Inexpensive, easy to find.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Konica TC or FT 1 motor, the FT 1 motor uses AAA batteries, no DX at all, but as with the T3, it is shutter speed priority rather than apature priority. FT has a built in winder, about 2 FPS, manual rewind. A standard kit of glass 28, 50, 135 and 200 easy to find and not too expensive, other Konica glass can be pricy.

    There are so many good ones out there and almost all of them are very affordable.

    Another option is to shoot manual on an auto focus body. I took a Pentax FS 1 and put in a split image focusing screen and shoot Pentax A lens. Pentax also made a manual focus camera ZM, but from I understand the build quaility was not great.

    Canon AV-1.
    Similar to the AE-1 but has Aperture priority.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
