After officially becoming the last company to offer APS (Advanced Photo System) film, a format introduced in 1996 by Eastman Kodak, Fujifilm has officially announced that they will cease the selling of their 24mm Nexia film to suppliers by months end – marking the end of the formats short lived era.
While Fujifilm’s plans to exhaust their remaining APS film stock have been in the works since last July, today’s news is the final nail in the coffin for the format whose legacy will live on by culprits of its demise – digital photography. Interestingly enough, current APS-C sensors found in many consumer DSLRs and mirrorless cameras actually borrowed the name from its now ill-stricken brethren. How’s that for irony…
