    I haven' seen a P&S film camera for a while. Over here there's the Fuji Natura and Klasse, but other than that, nada.
    Those who know, shoot film

    Bruce-

    for what it's worth, I stopped in Penn Camera on E Street this evening to get some Fuji 800 in 120, and asked them about film point-n-shoots. It's a mixed bag. Penn still carries them, from Canon and Olympus. Olympus has stopped producing film point-n-shoots. There is probably six months to a year of new stock in the distribution pipeline at this point. If you run into the lady again, send her over to Penn Camera. If it was in the Springfield Penn Camera location, call and ask to speak to the manager and tell him his staff are woefully misinformed as to their stock, and their policy.

    The market for p & s film cameras (other than collectables) seems to have totally collapsed. Those shops with new ones seem to have them dramatically reduced to clear. On ebay they usually go for a fiver if they sell at all. Some of the supermarkets such as Asda (Walmart) still offer a few very cheap totally basic models mainly aimed at children. They are just like disposables in functions but of course can be reloaded.

    The Argos catalogue, which is a good barometer of what sells, only list 3 (two Olympus & one Praktica) plus one Polaroid.

    My local walmart no longer carries any advanced point and shoots, just a few fixed lens types. It looks like that no one is making advanced point and shoots or APS cameras.
