Get a Holga 25mm/f8 off ebay. very small, very cheap, very light.

Here are some of my Holga 25 shots:

I removed the vignetting mask. Fun little lens.

One word of advice, they just put the distance scale from their 60mm MF lens on the 25 so it doesn't work! Basically everything is around the mountain symbol -- far side of the mountain for infinity, near side of the mountain for hyperfocal distance, etc. Was annoyed with the bad focus until I figured this out.

$15 of pure fun!!!

Best!
