    need small, fixed objective, wide angle, camera

    hi everyone,
    I am looking for a small camera, that'll take 35mm film.
    has one fixed objective, around 20mm to 30mm. which is cheap,
    but with decent optics, and well build.

    Any ideas...?
    thanks, I'll stay tuned!
    kind regards GAme

    If you don't mind electronics, Fuji Natura with 24/1.9 from Stephen Gandy.

    Mechanical cameras -- not many that I can think of.

    Cheers,

    Konica, and I think one other company, made a small one-time-use camera that had a 17mm lens in it. Not sure how easy it is to find one, but it would certainly be low cost.

    With more dedicated cameras, you might want to look at older Ricoh 35mm cameras. Some of those had a 21mm lens, and several just slightly less wide of a view.

    Ciao!

    If you dont mind autofocus, an Olympus Epic Stylus (35mm f2.8 lens) can be had refurbed for $40 or so on eBay. The only downside to it other than the autofocus is it only reads DX and if your cart isnt dx coded, it defaults to ISO 100. Which wouldnt be bad if I had Delta 100 instead of PanF+ in the freezer.

    Olympus OM-1 would do it. Since they only cost $120 when new (15 to 20 years ago) if you find one on eBay now - it's likely the shipping will cost more than the camera!

    I cannot think of any mechanical (i.e. not battery-dependent) cameras that fit this description. But I can heartily recommend the Ricoh GR1 series of cameras. One of the best point and shoot cameras ever, I think (28mm lens).

    How about an olympus XA. The lens is 35mm f/2.8 and actually pretty damn good for the price. I prefer the konica hexar AF but that is about ten times more expensive!

    The XA is extremely well engineered, it has a very clever clamshell design.

    I don't care for the later XAs, e.g. the XA2 etc.

    The XA should cost you no more than maybe 50 euros at the very most.

    your price range is 70 dollars? hmm...

    i can't think of any wide angle, fixed focal length cameras in the price range...

    XA4 has a 28mm lens may be more expensive than XA. but it is compact and does not need a case.
