At the present day normally camera is divided into film and digital. It is well forgotten that in between the two formats another format, Advanced Photo System (APS), was introduced into markets in 1996 as alternative to the popular 35mm format film. The APS standard was jointly developed by Canon, Fuji Photo, Eastman Kodak, Minolta and Nikon, however, in about 5 years later, due to the shrinking market share after the release of digital technology, most, if not all, of the makers decided to stop producing the APS cameras. Though a very small market still remains and the APS films still can be found, as I said it very well forgotten by most of users.
Until the day I was on the way to Steng Treng last month with my boss who used to work for a company producing camera lens glasses, the APS had never come up to my mind. It was a completely forgotten history for me as well.
