Default Low Cost with hotshoe and manual mode

What are some relatively recent inexpensive digital cameras, still available in 2014, that have a hotshoe and manual mode? The camera can be a "point and shoot", "compact", or whatever, as long as it has those two things. Interchangeable lenses are NOT required. This question was asked and answered before, but back in 2007.

I have plenty of cameras, but I'm asking so that I can refer people who want to do inexpensive off-camera flash to some specific models that won't break the bank.

Thanks!

Okay, the LX7 and XZ-2 are about $300. Looks like you can still get a XZ-1 for around $272. Can anyone make a suggestion to beat that? Any $200 cameras that would work?

The XZ-2 is much improved over the XZ-1- and well worth the extra...

the LX7 is a great camera with very nice build quality and image quality, but my husband's G15 is sharp, easy to use, very full featured and has an (admittedly not that sharp) OVF, and i believe the G16 shares its nice optics.
