With the end of May, Canon has ended the production of the last film camera, that was aimed to professional shooters: the EOS-1V. Canon have been producing film cameras for around 80 years, beginning in the far 1937 with a model that was Japan first focal-plane-shutter camera (the way still now shutter is done), though at that time Canon was not in lens business so the lens was from a company "Nippon Kogaku K.K." that later was called... Nikon.

In 1984 Canon started production of digital cameras and after 34 years the time has come to permanently abandon film and keep on only with digital. Hard to complain, but for whom begun with film, it is a little sad to see this piece of old world disappearing.
