Best all-in-one Film Camera for travel?

A very good question that was likely asked 15 years ago...

I'm looking for something nice and compact with a built-in lens, f/2.8 at minimum but f/2 would be even better. Not only for travel, but for carrying around day-to-day. I just sold my AE-1 Program which was a little more bulk that I cared for.

So far the Olympus Trip 35 seems like a good option (with a 40mm 2.8 lens), but it only has two shutter speeds: 1/40 and 1/200, and I'd like some more low-light potential than that. The viewfinder is smaller than I'd like. Alternatively, the Olympus Pen half frames seem like a lot of fun.

Any other ideas?


We had a quite a few P&S film cameras plus two AE-1's and an A-1. I don't remember the model name of our P&S cameras, one is Canon and another Nikon.

All my film cameras were sold to a local camera shop two years ago. A local camera shop near you might have one for you.
