Looking for a retro style point and shoot camera that's relatively compact

Hey, just wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations for me. I'm looking for a retro style aesthetic camera, that is fairly simple to take out and take quality photos with, whether fixed lens or just to couple with a quality prime lens.

Ideally it could also take passable video. I've owned complicated DSLR's in the past and would prefer something more casual. It seems olympus and fujifilm is the prevailing brand for these types of camera but i'm open to anything.

My budget is <£375 and of course i'm located in the UK. I would most likely be buying used or refurbished. Thanks!

Re: Looking for a retro style point and shoot camera that's relatively compact

You may want to try launching this query on a photography forum of some sort.  This is actually a support hub for GoPro camera's and you may not get as quick a response as you desire.  However some people here are photography buffs, so they may chime in with advice.  Honestly though, you'll get more information from a photography forum.
