Cheapest would be a Krasnogorsk K3, uses a battery you can't get here, but
you can find adapters on eBay. I've heard the meters in many of the
cameras do not work, or do not work accurately.
A Beaulieu R-16 also has a built-in meter, but it's fragile and usually
the first thing on the camera that breaks. If you can find one of these in
good working condition I think they're great cameras. This was what I used
when I shot a lot of 16 in the last century. I found the meter extremely
useful for the kind of work i was doing, a real timesaver. Kinda hard to
load the film though.
There are auto-iris zoom lenses available for Bolex RX cameras, which have
meters built in to work the iris.
That, plus the Scoopic is all I know of in the under $1000, MOS/100 ft.
