I haven't taken any photos on film for about 5 years but still have a good Olympus point and shoot 35mm camera from about 1993, which gives pretty decent image quality. I think my mum was given it by a boyfriend at the time but never got much use out of it as she preferred her existing camera which she got in about 1984.

If you haven’t used it for five years make sure you do all the things you’d do with a “new to you” camera before loading film: make sure the shutter works, dry fire it if possible with back open and make sure the shutter / aperture responds to light correctly ( not all cameras allow this ), charge and fire the flash a few times to make sure it’s capacitor is formed

For the first roll use a cheap, and if you’re sending it out to be developed, colour, negative film. Kodak Colorplus or Fujifilm C200.  That way you can see if it works without using a £12 roll of Ektar or Portra.
