Farewell to APS

Post by John »

With the news that Fujifilm are finally discontinuing production of APS (Advanced Photo System) film, yet another film format is detined for the scrap heap.

I think 35mm is safe for a while longer though, along with 120. However, for ever is a long time and the writing in the very long term is firmly upon the wall.
Best regards

John

LOL at first I read this as DX (cropped) formal sensors (APS-C) :S such a clutz this morning
Take only pictures, Leave only footprints ........
Возьмите только фотографии, оставить только след .........

Always ask yourself this question: “am I proud of this shot?” if the answer is “yes” then it doesn’t matter what anyone else says.

Don't worry about film it will be around for a very long time yet. I was wondering why digital photographers want film to disappear, but then it struck me, They know we are right and they really know they should be shooting film. :lol: Like a good wine that has been aged to perfection against a cheep plonk that promises all but fails to deliver. :lol:

I am currently looking for a really good Pentax film body. I have just had fixed a Super A but I would really prefer an MX, KM, ME Super or LX.

I intend to shoot some film..... :shock:
Best regards
