Canon ELPH Jr. – 1997

Canon ELPH Jr. APS point & shoot ultra-compact camera – September 1997

This camera set is available at our online store at https://www.ccstudio2380.com

Canon ELPH Jr.

Ultra tiny camera from Canon near the start of the APS introduction. It may have had a list price of $299.00 !!! That’s some serious coin even by today’s standards!

It’s a solid, well-designed camera with a crazy amount of features packed into such a small lightweight camera.

APS film is still readily¬†available today and can be developed and scanned by the top online processors. We’ve never used an APS camera so we’ll give this one a try. I’d like to check out the panorama format plus this camera has a relatively fast f2.8 wide angle lens.

Have you used an APS camera in the past? If so, let us know what brand and model and if you were happy with it. Thanks a bunch!

It’s hard for me to believe that’s it’s been 20 years since this picture was taken at my retirement ceremony on board the USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67).
