    I just got hold of a Canon EOS IX 7 with a 22-55 mm USM lens in mint condition this might seem unusual the 22-55 was a cheap alternative to 24-70 L Lens for My EOS 1 D MK 4 and gives me 28-70 equivalent on
    a 1.3 crop.
    The main thing is that I would not mind keeping The EOS IX 7 but it uses APS film which I think was sold as 24 or 40 EXP but I have not seen any about.
    Do anyone know if it is still being produced as there seems to be a lot of these going for sale on Ebay I never really took much notice of The EOS APS system but when I received the camera and lens I thought this is a novel camera.
    All i can see is out of date stuff being sold buy I would like to be able to obtain fresh stock.
    Please Help !

    APS was discontinued about a decade ago depending on the manufacturer. So it is a bit of a gamble shooting the old discontinued film, hopefully you can get it from someone who stored it in the fridge or freezer.

    Check out the film photography podcast site store, these guys get and stock al sorts of discontinued film, imported film and even roll film for defunct formats. They also test a roll in each batch from what i understand. Its also a good listen if you like film photography.
    Looks like they are out of aps at the moment, but I think you can join the mailing list for updates from the store.

    It's a shame in one respect because APS had some nice ideas, the snag was that they made the negative smaller and film more expensive and less versatile, and almost impossible to process at home. But the two APS Eos cameras are to my mind the best SLRs made for the format - Nikon's Pronea cameras were very unreliable and the lenses sold for them couldn't be used on other Nikons (though you could use other Nikon lenses on the Proneas), Minolta's cameras weren't reliable either, and used a small lens mount that was unique to their APS camera and was later used for their first VERY low-resolution digital model, then was abandoned. The little Canon SLRs seemed much sturdier and more reliable, and I really wish they'd build a retro DSLR based on their design.

    Thanks for your advise I have discarded the EOS IX 7 ( in the bin) and bought a Canon EOS 100 film camera and just waiting for 10 rolls of Fuji HR 200 for £11.00p from China.

    I hope by bin you mean on the shelf, I don't toss cameras, I have a number that can't be used on my bookshelves. :) You can still experiment with the expired rolls, as there are options to get them developed. You just cant rely on them for any consistent output. And in any event the camera would be a fun conversation piece.

    And they're worth a little to collectors - not hugely valuable, but better than throwing them away, and you will make a collector happy.

    i find it more satisfying to put them on time lapse and slowly unscrew them till they stop working, you can almost see the tear in its little eye
