The Olympus Trip 35 film camera, which was produced from 1967 to 1984, works amazingly well for low-light photography using 400 ISO film. The automatic exposure will lock under low-light conditions, but in most cases you get a perfect exposure setting the camera to manual f2.8. The shutter will fire at 1/40 sec. giving you no problems hand-held. Here is an example taken in the food court at Union Railroad station in Washington DC.

Shooting in the Washington Metro System was a joy. I love the structured arches and the way a train casts a shadow when passing through the station. The Lumix LX3 is a perfect low-light camera in these situations. Here is an example.
