  • Pros: Light, compact, easy to use .
  • Cons: Buttons and veiw finder a bit small .

  • Excerpt: I bought this for my wife about 4 years ago at the time APS was in its infancy. However, with the digital revolution, and traditional SLR users preferring 35mm film, there seems to be no place for APS. Because of this, we have not used the Canon M-1 for about 2 years now.
  • Pros: Compact, easy to use, built in lens cover and excellent quality photos .
  • Cons: Feels cheap, shutter release button too stiff .

  • Excerpt: I've always loved cameras but they never liked me much. Ever since I can remember I've been fascinated by those little boxes and by the fact that other people can create such beautiful pictures. But for me they were always blurred, dark, askew or just double-exposed.
  • Pros: Incredibly easy to use, Great Photos, Speed .
  • Cons: Price, Flash could be awkward .

Your next camera

TheDuke, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Before I get to the actually camera in this case, I shall briefly describe the APS (Advanced Photo System) because it is quite different to the “normal” 35mm film that we’re all familiar with. The film itself comes in a self-contained cartridge which enables quick reloading (if necessary).
  • Pros: Small, light, easy to use, nice features
  • Cons: APS developing is expensive

  • Pros: Robust, Easy to carry
  • Cons: Possible poor view finder framing
