  KODAK: About the Advanced Photo System
This venture resulted in the Advanced Photo System, which was announced to the photofinishing trade at Photo and Imaging Expo in London, in October 1995, and to the industry as a whole at the Photo Marketing Association trade show in Las Vegas in February 1996.
Advanced Photo System film features an environmentally advantaged polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) base, which is a thinner, stronger material than bases used with 35 mm films.
Although the Advanced Photo System incorporates a negative format that is smaller than the 35 mm negative format, the print quality possible from the new system meets consumers' expectations.

 Advanced Photo System (APS) versus 35 mm Film Format
APS (IX240) means Advanced Photo System and refers to a new camera format and film size which was introduced to the marketplace a few years ago (the IX240 refers to Information Exchange and film size).
The Advanced Photo System is supported by a large consortium of companies including Kodak, Fuji, Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Pentax, Konica and many others.
APS systems allow for photographs to be printed in one of three formats: "H" (full negative in a 9:16 HDTV aspect ratio), "C" in the same 2:3 aspect ratio as a 35-mm negative, and "P" or Panorama.

The system was then known as APS but that's a term that can no longer be used legally, as I'll explain in a moment.
The photo industry is technically barred from using the three letters APS or the logo they had developed that incorporate those letters, because some other company in a different industry already had "APS" under some sort of trademark or other legal protection.
Here are a few of the photos I was able to take above the water using the camera, and there's also one very abstract sunset panoramic that was taken by my daughter who was just shy of her fourth birthday at that time.

 Light Reading Online: Advanced Photo System Revealed   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
This all-new system consists of a leaderless cassette containing a new silver halide emulsion film, with a smaller width, just 24mm, and available in lengths of 15, 25 and 40 images per roll.
In addition to the new emulsion, which Fuji Photo has gone as far as to say is actually sharper than conventional 35mm, a transparent magnetic layer is deposited across the entire surface of the film.
The new system allows for greater ease of use of film in a digital or home computer environment, but at the same time it retains silver halide's enormous cost effective resolution advantages over digital origination.

 APS - The Advanced Photo System film .
At the centre of the Advanced Photo System is the new film cartridge, which constitutes the central link in the information chain between the consumer and the photofinisher.
Unlike the 35mm format, where the tongue of the film has to be correctly positioned in the camera, the cartridge does not open until the camera back is closed; the film is then automatically inserted correctly, so that the possibility of any mistakes in inserting the film is ruled out.
With this system feature, called "information exchange (IX)", photofinishers are given data that can be used to improve the picture quality, identify the print format and with automatic formats, print the required information on the back.

 Advanced Photo System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Advanced Photo System (APS) is a film format for still photography.
Most cameras with magnetic IX automatically recorded the exposure date and time on the magnetic layer, with more advanced models allowing the user to specify a predetermined caption to be printed on the photo or record the exposure settings, as well as determine print aspect ratio.
Magnetic IX caused some problems for photo processors, who found their magnetic reading heads had to be cleaned frequently, or that their equipment's ability to print this information was limited.

The "bridge" analog/digital system, introduced in early February by a consortium of leading film and camera manufacturers, delivers a laundry list of consumer benefits at prices expected to exceed today's technology by only 10% or so in most product segments.
The essence of the system is a new film cassette that contains both a new, tougher formulation of color film (24 mm) and a magnetic layer that records information digitally, allowing film, camera and photofinisher to communicate directly with each other.
With better photos and easier storage, that figure could be increased sharply, and coupled with a better mix of more advanced reprint options, could easily double the reprint market.
