Lately I've been taking an old Olympus 35-RC around with me biking. The camera just stays clipped to my belt with a small carabiner and it easy to grab and shoot while riding. I like using the old film camera because of it simple functions and compact ruggedness. The camera has no built in light meter, so all of the exposures have to be evaluated and selected by your best judgement. Also you focus the camera by distance and before every shot you estimate your distance from the subject and then move the focus ring to that number. (It ranges from 3 feet - 15+ feet.) Every roll that goes through this camera is a surprise, and I enjoy the variety of shots that can be captured and juxtaposed.
