Looks an awful lot like an EOS mount. I've never seen an slr like this:

APS. So I guess it had the same crop factor. I didn't know any of the major SLR makers made APS SLR's compatible with their 35mm lens mount. I know Minolta had a "Vectis" series, but it used an entirely different lens mount. Very interesting.

What a dorky design, looking at it close to 15 years later.

That's a slightly different APS from what you're used to hearing around here...

Yeah, I'm saying that the reason we call current crop APS is because it is based on the APS film system. My wife had a sweet little Elph. It was tiny and took about the best pictures I ever saw from a film non-SLR.

So that camera has a crop factor, just like on my 40D. Just thought that was kinda interesting.

Yup, just wasn't sure if you were referring to the original APS crop factors since I noticed the 40D in your sig. You should pick the thing up and play around with it, for $25 you really can't go wrong unless the shutter's busted. :)

APS film can be hard to come by and have processed; perhaps harder still to have processed properly.
