    Film cameras........(questions???)

    I'm looking for a small (pocket size) 35mm film camera that can still put out good quality photos that is under $150.

    -Is there a good place online to browse for 35mm film cameras?
    -What are some good but not overly expensive cameras? It seems like all I can find are range finders which are mad expensive or lomo cameras and I already own one of those, I like them I just want something that is a little better.

    Are you looking for a rangefinder/slr/point & shoot?

      The most important thing for me is the size. I want a camera that I can put in my pocket and be comfortable. I have a brand new nikon d3000 but never use it due to its size. It makes great photos when I want to bring a back pack and have a subject that isn't moving (randomly) or controlled some how. Right now I just want to take lomography type photos fast, random, etc. but sometimes I want to take time with a shot and get a great quality looking photo. I have a lomography camera now and it can't deliver on the quality part. I don't really know much about film cameras but it seems like rangefinders are badass but expensive as fuck. Point and shoot seems like it would be the way to go but I can't find a good selection of them for sale anywhere online. And SLRs seem like their lenses are to big to be portable.

          This....no contest. Although you'll be a touch over $150 pay out....totally worth it though.

            True, but where can I buy one. From a quick google search all I see is parts and shit.

                        100% truth contax T2 plays a big role in my dreams atm. For that reason alone you should get it.

                          T2/T3 is the best but out of your price range..

                          I'd go with a Yashica T4 http://www.keh.com/camera/Yashica-Au...990712750?r=FE

                            Don't buy a T4, they're garbage. They're nice if you can get it to actually focus though. Highly recommend the Olympus Stylus Epic (not the zoom) if you're looking for something cheap. If you want to spend a lot, get the Contax T2. If you want to manually focus get one of the Olympus XA.

                                  I've decided to say fuck it, sell my dslr buy a canon s90 and if I want to shoot film stick with the lomo.
