    I'm confused, aren't there formats more obscure than APS still in production?

    I wonder if the guys of Lomo could take up the gauntlet.

    Many of the obscure formats can be recreated by cutting, respooling, and otherwise adapting existing film sizes. I also suspect the IX240 cartridge itself is covered by several still active patents, which could prevent boutique players from entering the market for at least 2-3 years.

    The information layer, the magnetic stripe and film info, would be missing, and thus the camera would malfunction. The camera would not know how to count frames or rewind the film.

    I think I may have one or two rolls left in my freezer. I don't have a APS camera anymore and it's been in there for a fairly long time. You can have it/them if you pay the postage. PM me if interested.

    That's fine if you got it... I've got a photo store I can return to...

    I made and won a lowball bid on a small Canon APS camera, though it's not the Elph 2 I wanted. Too fast on the 99 cents bid...

    There's a Titanium Contax up there to be had ... it's not as cheap.

    No I haven't heard back from the PM lol

    I've got the Canon XI SLR APX it's silly high tech for APX but fun.

    If there are many rolls we should share

    You still get APX-film off the shelf of photo-stores around here.
