The Nikon AF600 (lite.touch) is an absolute gem! and a feat of genius, it is one of the smallest compact 35mm cameras I've ever seen (smaller than a lot of APS cameras in fact) The camera was first made in 1993 but it still looks slick. I can only imagine the amount of time and care that went into making that lens (f3.5/28mm) as this baby will easily out perform a lot of compact digital cams the kids are wielding these days.
I got this one on eBay for only £12, and have seen ones fly by with one bid and go for 99p, the camera feels lovely to hold and has all the features you would expect of a mid level 35mm compact plus a panorama mode for making it look like you and your mates are in the movies! which is nice.

as you can see the pictures are crisp and have a lovely D.O.F even for a f3.5 lens the sharpness and bouquet of colour achieved by this camera I think would even rival some entry level SLR cameras like my Nikon F65
I took this one using Ilford XP2 400 which is a B&W film that can de processed in C-41 chemistry meaning you don't have to send it off or in my case use the lab at Pinewood studios to get it developed, it is not 100% monochrome though and prints will all ways have a slight blue green or brown tinge to them.
GET ONE OF THESE CAMERAS AND YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT, FILM ISN'T DEAD JUST YET!
