Interesting APS Camera on 12/16/2007 00:22:59 MST Print View

I'm always haunting thrift stores and I came across this little titanium camera today. It is APS format, so best for more casual shot-of-record type things, but better than no camera at all. If you wanted a small film-based camera for hiking or travel, this *is* small.

It was made by Fuji some years ago and was an expensive unit at the time-- over $200. It was marketed under several different names in various countries as is common with photo gear. This one is marked Fujifim Fotonex 1000ix MRC Tiara. It slides open, reminding me of a Minox. The replace the flim, you actually slide the outer case with completely off the main body.

Features:
6.5oz with case and battery (my scale)
Fujinon Super EBC 24mm f3.5 Autofocus Lens
Compact Design
Titanium Body
Drop-in Film Loading
3 Print Formats with Super EBC Real Image Zoom Viewfinder
Information Exchange (ix)
Print Quality Improvement (PQI)
Mid Roll Change (MRC)
Date/Time
Intelligent Multi Programmed Zoom Flash with Red-Eye Reduction
LCD Display
Self Timer

I wonder how an APS negative compares to a 7mp digital. It is a little more than 50% of a 35mm negative. I need to get a roll of film and see how this one does in the field.
