Many old film cameras can be picked up fairly cheaply on eBay these days, well at least they can if you stay away from with the name Leica!

The Olympus 35 RC is cheap, fast, and most of all compact. While not exactly shirt pocket size, its hardly bigger than todays point and shoot cameras and will easily fit into a coat pocket. Pair it with some nice film and away you go!

I've been using it with some Ilford delta 400 recently to create some fantastic black and whites.

The Olympus 35rc is a manual focus range finder camera, it has an automatic shutter priority mode, so simply set the shutter speed, and the ISO and your set to enjoy some retro fun!
