    That's how an APS film spool is. The film is pushed out electronically when you close the back of the camera.

    So, now the question is whether or not this new camera of yours takes APS film.

    From a quick read of the link provided by Dwig, I would say it is the wrong kind of film. Although the film transport is automatic, it says to align the film leader at the red mark in front of the take up spool. With APS film, there's no film leader.

    Does the "film cassette" even fit in there?

    Any 35mm film that is not APS I imagine. Just read the link for yourself and make sure. I only when very quickly over it and I've never had a self loading camera.

    If your mum doesn't use film camera, how would she know the difference? Too bad you opened the package though.

    :thumbup: Really any 35mm film like Ilford, Fuji and whatever. I have a 500n also. It collected dust for years and I finally found it in a closet 6 months or so ago. I bought 2 rolls to try it out. Only half of one roll has been exposed so far. Maybe I'll break it out again this weekend. :D




    Why did that link for Ilford look like that?

    91 Euros = $133USD (+/-). A bit rich IMO. I paid like much, much less than that in USD.

    Probably includes processing. I seem to remember all slide films in France were sold with processing included. Maybe they do that with neg films in England...
