Mickey & Minnie by Fujifilm

Another neat find from our collection – this rather rare Mickey and Minnie Mouse APS camera by Fujifilm. From about 1999 or so, purchased at Tokyo Disneyland.

This limited edition Mick & Min camera was only available for a limited time at Tokyo Disneyland. The camera inside the collectible tin has never been opened and is still loaded with Fujicolor APS color negative film. I believe my translation of the “40” means that there are about 40 flashes available with the cameras built-in flash. Chances are (although they may still be working) the batteries have long since expired.

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.

Fujifilm Endeavor 310ix Zoom – Compact APS Film Camera

Another “Modern Classic” and “Plastic Fantastic” from the late 1990s. These sophisticated cameras became the mainstay of the industry before the onslaught of the first wave of useful low-end digital cameras.

Fujifilm 310ix Zoom

Part of Fuji Photo’s popular Endeavor series of APS cameras. The 310ix is equipped with a Super-EBC Fujinon 24-70mm power zoom lens and a host of other advanced features typically only found in the APS format.

This wonderful camera is in its original straight from the factory condition – never used and fully working.

Some of the accessories that are included in this kit are a Fujifilm branded camera cloth in its bright “Fujifilm green”, a remote control that could be attached to the neck strap and used to fire the shutter, nylon neck strap, complete instruction booklet and a roll of Fujicolor 200 APS film (expired 2000).

The camera takes (1) CR123A battery which also provides power to the date/time and title functions. Here you can see part of the keypad used to set the printing functions.

One of the functions of this camera is the ability to change film mid-roll and to switch to panorama mode. It has a solid feel to it with some heft and the build quality seems strong. APS films are no longer made but there are plenty of expired rolls available online through auction sites and the traditional online “monster from the jungle”.

You can purchase this wonderful camera at our online store at https://www.ccstudio2380.com
