Fujifilm DL Super Mini
This one is definitely a collector's camera. It's tough to find one and when you do it will be at a high price.
Lovely simple design with one of those sliding front covers that is also the on/off switch (the picture shows it in the open position). Has a reputation for a high quality lens and is in the same league as the Yashica T4 and the Oly Stylus Epic.
Here is a nice description of the camera and examples of what it can do.
I was brave on the choice of film and development method with this one. The film was Fuji Sensia 100 slide film. I think it was around 10 or more years old. I've got to trust Diafine so much that I decided to use it for this out of date, color slide film! Well, if you give up the idea of color it works a treat! Nice contrasty and grainy black and white that I may have got from TriX. This was souped the normal Diafine way, 4min/4min . . . so easy!!!
This is what Wallace Koopman says about the Super Mini. His site is the proverbial treasure trove for old cameras and how they perform today. http://wkoopmans.ca/notebook/?p=7638
