Week #18 – Kodak APS 200

When I started this project I asked around among my friends if someone had old film I could use. One of them handed me a roll of APS (Advanced Photo System) film and a cheap plastic point & shoot camera.

There were already two exposed frames on the film, that were shot ~10 years ago, which helps to somewhat date the film. Developing the film was still doable, but the lab couldn’t scan it. So I had to fiddle the cartridge open with the help of a Youtube tutorial and a screwdriver.

Scanning it was quite a challenge since I don’t have a APS negative holder. I basically used masking tape to keep it flat. I’m not sure yet if I want to shoot more APS film in the future.

If I do, I probably should research APS scanning some more – like building masks or such.
