    Although it may not fit exactly the definition of point and shoot - at least in terms of what the OP had in mind - I would suggest the Olympus XA-2. Lost years ago, I thought nothing of running Kodachrome through mine - and you do not get film much more unforgiving than my beloved (P)KM or (P)KR!

    Wow... I'm really liking the Hexar AF... and even the Hexar RF

    I also like the XA though. Pretty sweet to have a rangefinder camera that compact. I wish the XA-2 didn't remove the rangefinder.

    I have one. But it's not a P&S, it's an SLR, different genre.

    The Hexars are Leica(M) size. The Xa's are pretty neat and compact and certainly meet the inexpensive criteria.

    The hexar has but one weakness: fairly slow top shutter speed. Other than that it's a weapon.

    I've had a lot of fun with XAs. Not really a p&s though, per my own definition... you do have to focus the thing. A p&s is something that you just point... and shoot

    Something I can just throw in the back seat, for when my Girlfriend really dosen't want me bring camera gear in the first place.

    My Rollei 35 would be perfect for this, if it was able to accurately focus close wide open
    Either of these are great with the advantage of aperture priority and limited manual control available on the Nikon 35Ti.
