Nikon to stop making most film cameras...

This just in…

NEW YORK (AP) — Nikon Corp., which helped popularize the 35mm camera five decades ago, will stop making most of its film cameras to concentrate on digital models.

The Japanese company said it wanted to focus on "business categories that continue to demonstrate the strongest growth" as film cameras sales keep shrinking.

Nikon will discontinue seven film-camera models, leaving in production only the current top-line model, the F6, and a low-end manual-focus model, the FM10.

The Japanese Company said it just wanted to focus on making money…..

Actually, I would applaud the continuation of the FM10.  Eventually high end digital cameras will cost 149.00 and film cameras will be made by custom manufacturers and cost 3000.00.  As long as I can find a stylus for my turntable, Im good.  Anyone have some 8-tracks to swap?

There are still too many differences between digital and analog to abandon film.  But, I DO like being able to take HUNDREDS of shots in one afternoon…
