How does Advanced Photo System help me get better pictures?

Advantix cameras and film use state-of-the-art Advanced Photo System (APS) to simplify picture taking and ensure better photos. Using magnetic technology, Kodak developed a way for camera and film to communicate the technical details of each shot. It removes the guesswork and lets you concentrate on the fun part of taking pictures.

How does the picture quality of Advanced Photo System compare to 35-mm format?

When pictures are taken under the same conditions, both formats should produce similar quality results. However, the features of the Advanced Photo System (camera, film, and photofinishing) make it possible for you to make fewer errors and get more successful pictures per roll. Some Advantix cameras even allow the film to communicate with the photofinisher's equipment, resulting in automatic adjustments for the best prints.

What do the symbols on the top of the film cassette mean?

At a glance, you can tell the exact status of any roll of Advantix film.
  • A full circle means the roll is unexposed.
  • A half-circle indicates the roll is partially exposed.
  • An "X" means the roll is fully exposed but not processed.
  • A rectangle indicates that the film has been processed.

  • And, there's no need to worry about putting an exposed or processed cassette back into your Advantix camera. An automatic reject device prevents that.

    Does a smaller film format mean limited print sizes?

    No. Quite the contrary. Advantix gives you more print-sizes than ever. For every shot, you have a choice of C for Classic (similar to a standard 35-mm print), H for Group, or P for Panoramic.

    Is it difficult to find locations to process Advanced Photo System films?

    With more than 100,000 locations worldwide that are equipped to provide APS photofinishing services, finding a convenient Place to take your Advantix film should be very easy. Just look for any outlet displaying the "Certified Advanced Photo System Photofinishing Service" logo.

    Is my 35-mm camera compatible with the Advanced Photo System?

    No. The Advanced Photo System is unique technology that uses a completely new generation of films and cameras. APS film and 35-mm film are not interchangeable.

    Will Advantix cameras, films, and photofinishing services cost more than traditional 35-mm systems?

    Advanitx cameras are available in a full range of prices, and most retailers set a fixed price per roll of Advantix film. APS Processing may be slightly higher than 35mm processing, but remember, with Advantix features, you're likely to get more good shots per roll.

    What's the secret to mid-roll change?

    Mid-Roll change is a feature available in some Advantix cameras. In those cameras, an active light lock and the magnetic information in the Advanced Photo System film cassette, allows the film to be wound and rewound countless times. So you can exchange rolls anytime you like-- to adjust film speed to lighting conditions, swap color for black and white, or to keep cassettes organized by subject.
