    Looking for a small 35mm camera for every day use.

    I'm looking for a camera I can take anywhere.
    I need it to be small, manual exposure(or shutter or apeture priority)
    and manual focus or zone focus.
    I would like it to be under 100$

    How about an Olympus XA?

    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Hans is probably on the right track with the Olly XA, I would also add their 35RC or even the Trip35.
    The Rollei 35's are pretty special too but would probably blow your budget to pieces.

    I also agree about the XA.

    I have been using one of these since 1980 when I bought my first one.

    I permanently carry one with 400 ASA film loaded. The film speed set to 320 ASA and I just fire away.

    If you get a situation where you have backlight then you just flip the little lever on the base out and you have 1.5 stop more exposure to get a better exposure on your subject.

    The accessory flash isn't that great, I don't use it any more, just change the film speed to 640 and process accordingly.

    I get very good and useable negs under fleuro lights with a 2.8 aperture setting and the shutter running around 1/30 to 1/60 as it does.

    The tripod socket is plastic, so check that the threads are still there.

    Mick.

    Rollei 35
    If it says Zeiss or Rollei, the answer is YES!

    A Kodak Retinette Ia or II with a cheap Sekonic light meter will do within your budget.

    I agree, Retinette 1a - great little camera with sharp lens and cheap as chips

    I'd probably find one of those 1970s Japanese rangefinders and then replace the foam seals.

    I have a number of 70's rangefinders and any of them fit your criteria, but my Olympus XA is the one that goes everywhere with me.

    If you shoot color, and are looking for very large prints, then an APS camera, like a Cannon Elf, dirt cheap, and tiny.
