Kodak Advantix Cameras
Introduced in 1996, the "Advanced Photo System" was the result of both improved film technology and the co-ordination of several of the major camera and film manufacturers worldwide. No doubt taking the place of the Instamatic in the eyes of many "purists", the system has all the advantages of one-step cartridge loading, giving a very useable negative, slightly larger than a 35mm half-frame and about twice the size of a 110, and has successfully captured a large proportion of the "compact camera" market worldwide.
A feature of the Advanced Photo System is that the processed negatives are stored in the original film cassette, which has a unique identification number. Also supplied with the processed film is an index print, with this unique number, showing "thumbnails" of the pictures on the film. If both the index print and the film cartridge are stored together, for instance in a Kodak Memory Keeper, finding negatives to re-order prints can be a relatively easy job.
