I had no idea what the Bellami was, apart from remembering it vaguely as a kid. My curiosity was piqued when I found this unused one recently:

While many of these types of cameras have similar specs, the lens on this one far exceeds most that I have used in its class.
The thing that I really like about this type of camera is that they are much quicker, and arguably more accurate, to use than P&S cameras with AF. Set the zone focus (on the Bellami there is a green setting on the lens which in good light pretty much renders everything in focus) and shoot. Super quiet and zero lag as there is no AF mechanism making adjustments.
Fitting in the palm of my hand is a bonus, as well as having a single wind film advance lever.
