    Anybody use APS?

    What has your experience been with this format? My only time with it was a Fuji disposable I took to London, where I got nice panoramas of the Thames.

    Kodak, and Fuji, have both commited to continue to supply film for the next 7 years, even though the cameras have been discontinued.

    There are some really cool things about the technology. There is actually magnetic tape embedded in the film to record data.

    I never tried applying a magnet to a roll and sending it in, though...

    Well, When I decided I wanted to "take pictures" 4 years ago, thats what I got. I was intemedated by film and digital and this looked really easy. Kodak APS point and shoot. 3 sizes to shoot with, one being the panarama, which was kind of cool.....

    This was a great camera for outdoor stuff, low light situations were not all that great. But consider, I think they only made 100 and 400 film. The best of pics were fantastic, considering.

    I think its a near gone technology though. Film is hard to find and who knows about processing.

    Plus, you can't enlarge that much, as the film format is tiny...

    Close your eyes to see. This will take a while.

    Almost anywhere in Denmark you can drop off your APS films for dev. Photo stores, supermarkets et.al.

    I have tried it once with a friends P&S and Kodak's APS Advantix black & white chromogenic film. Nice to be able to use black & white film in APS. My friend uses it a lot after we tested the film.

    It ranks right up there with the Disc and 110.
