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?


I still shoot a roll of slide film once in a great while because when I switched to digital one of my Canon cameras (EOS3) was only a few months old and I still have that camera.

I hate to see it just sitting around gathering dust plus I've always loved slides.

Anyway, everyone is different but I can't understand why anyone, today, would use a film camera for travel.
