The content in the Articles section is most likely to focus on more general information about point and shoot film cameras, as well as other issues which are relevant to compact film camera usage. Some of these might be current topics and stories; whilst others may be resources which are relevant to both prime lens and zoom lens point and shoot film cameras.

For example, there are articles considering the advantages and disadvantages of point and shoot film cameras, as well as discussing the pros and cons of zoom lenses versus prime lenses on point and shoot film cameras. Other topics include a discussion on the limitations of some more basic compact cameras when it comes to utilising DX coded camera films.
