Bob Edwards Talks To Herbert Keppler,

a writer for Popular Photography magazine, about a new photo system being developed jointly by Kodak, Canon, Minolta, Nikon, and Fuji. The Advanced Photo System, or APS, will provide a more foolproof means of taking good pictures. It includes a new type of film, packed in a light-proof cartridge, a smaller camera, and other high-tech features not available currently on even the most expensive 35-mm cameras. Photo labs will have to buy costly electronic processing equipment that can read information encoded on each roll of film.
