no more film just digital
anyone know about this, is it a rumor?
isnt that nikon?
edit:nevermind...just checked out dpreview.com
i hope they atleast keep one film cam for each level (entry/prosumer/pro)
no one is buying them and there are tons available used for cheep. who would spend $2k on a new 1VHS when you could get a mint one for $700
Used > new anyhow.
I can't believe they're killing off the 35mm though.
who actually goes and looks at getting a film body though anymore? the ones on the shelves now will last for quite some time
They've stopped production of 35mm for all but one...
they are making 2: their lowest model, and their highest model
I do... but not new bodies....
Everyone knows that Nikon owned during the days of 35mm and Canon Owns the digital days. That's why the Nikon name is still big becuase of their past reputation with the 35mm. IBnikoncrewhaterebuttal
id take a nikon DSLR over a Cannon any day
As would I. I have no use for a civil war weapon.
you don't even know how to spell Canon
My stepdad just bought an Elan7N
new @ B&H
Normally I tend to buy new because the price difference between new and used isn't enough and I'd rather just have new things
but with the resale on film bodies, I'd go used (and did )
you keep telling yourself that
I just got a 1968 Konica autoreflex T
The body is about 9 pounds not really...but yeah, its a monster and can be used as a weapon.
When digital starts to be able to replace medium/large format I'll start being amazed/caring...until then for a company to put money into producing new 35mm film cams isn't much of a priority.
Start caring and being amazed then: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/essays/back-testing.shtml
Digital has been giving medium format film a run for a while now, this isn't news.
and I can take a 5d image and expand it to 39 megapixels in photoshop...doesn't mean its of good quality. show some examples
did you even READ the article I linked, genius?
And how many people have access to high dollar scanners?
And which LF or MF camera do you own, accompanied by your big dollar scanner.
