I'm sure many of you have experienced this: You go out on a day trip with your family and you end up lugging a heavy load of camera gear; a body or two with a few lenses. But this load takes away all the enjoyment of the family outing. It becomes a pain fumbling around with lens changes, and your SLR and lenses never seem to fit in the babies diaper bag. I've realized that when I'm taking day trips with the family, it's better to just carry a tiny camera with me. I used to have an Olympus XA for many years till it broke down. But I realize that the XA doesn't have full manual controls and I'd think that its aperture priority isn't accurate enough for slide film. Is there any 35mm compact film camera (perhaps the size of an Olympus XA) that allows me to control both shutter speed and aperture? I like to use my handy Gossen Digisix hand held light meter and set the aperture and shutter speed manually. I would like a 35mm film camera because I enjoy projecting slides. Its okay if it has a fixed lens... as long as its in the 35mm - 50mm range. And the lens should be very sharp and produce great colors because I'm spoiled with my Pentax Limited prime lenses (31mm, 43mm, 77mm). Lack of sharpness in inferior lenses really shows up when projecting. thanks!
