APS film is long dead. No one liked it as the sensor was smaller than 35mm. To get to 4x6 the negative had to be blown up. What was the point of paying more and getting less size?

Not that APS film has nothing to do with this discussion (it doesn't), but for the record it is perhaps good to remind that APS film did not die because it was smaller than 35mm (the quality was more than good enough for 4x6 prints with the films available in mid-1990s), but because prints from APS film were on average more expensive.
