Michael, thanks for asking, but it's a no thanks from me. It would seem APS is not exactly too popular. I always thought it had several good points as a format, but digital came along and outdid it in just about every respect. Now you can't even give an APS away - as our lack of interest would seem to show. That of course means there is an opening for someone to start the ultimate APS collection.
I think if APS had been introduced ten years earlier, it may have really established a foothold in the market and may have even been more popular than 35mm. As it was, digital came along before APS could gain the popularity needed to last. The features that were introduced with APS were incorporated into the digital cameras. Many of the early digital cameras were very similar to their APS siblings.
I have also picked up a couple of old digital cameras. A Sony Cybershot p50 and an Olympus C-700. The nice thing is I can play around with them with no additional expense except for some AA batteries.

The digital camera and housing, and the mini printer have been spoken for. Not even camera collectors collect APS cameras apparently! Oh well, I may hang on to the one 35mm film item. It has a nice case and feels good in the hands.
