We mentioned a few months ago that Nikon was stopping all development of it's film cameras, I guess it was only a matter of time until Canon went the same way.

Oh NO I have no desire, I do not to, I do not like digital camera's. I have said this before, I would like to go in the other direction and have and use older much older camera's.

I guess I am in the minority on this subject.

It's really not a big deal Carole, there'll be 35mm cameras available used for decades. They just won't be developing any new ones in the foreseeable future. And seeing what Nikon and Canon have in their high end models, it's hard to imagine what they could add to them anyway.

Mike - thank you for the info.

I mean I would like to use camera equipment that is at least 30 to 40 years old or older. It is just me and how I view photography.
