I also enjoy using my Canon Ixus camera with APS film.  It’s electronic but takes film.  Expensive film.  Top left is the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C taken with the Canon Ixus on a clear sunny day.  And below St Paul’s Cathedral taken with my Agfa on a clear, but cold winter day, with black and white film.
