Fujifilm AP-1                                                                                Kodak Advantix FD300

Advanced Photo System (APS) and Film

Digitizers - 1996.  APS (Advanced Photo System) film is in 24 mm width rather than 35mm and has three image formats: H for "High Definition" (30.2 x 16.7 mm; aspect ratio), C for "Classic" (25.1 x 16.7 mm; aspect ratio), and P for "Panoramic" (30.2 x 9.5 mm; aspect ratio).  One other difference from 35mm film was that it was designed to have the developed film returned to its original metal cartridge after development rather than being placed in a package along with the prints,  It was marketed by Eastman Kodak under the brand name Advantix, by FujiFilm under the name Nexia, by Agfa under the name Futura and by Konica as Centuria.  Although a number of manufacturers produced cameras for APS film, it did not obtain long-term popularity in the market, apparently because many photographers did not feel that its pluses were that significant compared to standard 35mm file which produced somewhat sharper images. 

Fuji and Kodak marketed digitizers for APS film that worked by placing the film canisters into the digitizers which then converted the analog film photos into digital images.  The Fuji AP-1 was designed to project the images onto consumer TV sets while the Kodak Advantix FD300 was intended to send the digitized images to a computer.   Both of these digitizers can occasionally be seen on eBay as well as APS film.  There are still film developers who will process APS film for those who still use wish prints from the film or who have working digitizers. 

Digitizers such as the AP-1 and Advantix are no longer needed since many desktop scanners have film holders which allow users to scan and digitize various sizes of color and black and white film.

canon elph, ixus, ixy shirt-sized digital camera 1996

CANON ELPH (IXUS in Europe, IXY in Japan) - 1996. The ELPH was Canon's first foray into shirt pocket-sized cameras and was the world's smallest autofocus zoom camera at that time. The body was designed by Yasushi Shiotani in such a way that it would not look out of place inside a lady's handbag, and also look attractive when worn around the neck.   APS film.   Shutter 2 to 1/500 th sec.   Lens 24-28 mm.   It was a very popular camera, partially due to its unique stainless steel case. Near mint condition samples can be found on eBay for as little as $5.

QV-100.  Similar to the QV-10A, but with a 640 x 480 pixel CCD.  MSRP $650.
QV-300.  A lot of stuff in this box! 1/4-inch 640 x 480 pixel CCD.  ISO 120.  f/2.6, f/8 lens with wide and tele positions.  Shutter 1/8-1/4000.  Autofocus, built-in flash.  MSRP $549. Markings on Casios can be confusing. Some may say QV-10 on the front, but on the bottom may say QV-10 or QV-10B, possibly indicating a different marketing area or some minor change to the camera.  We believe we were the first digital camera history web site to provide photos and information concerning these cameras.
