image for Canon has ended sales for its last film camera

Canon has announced that it is officially discontinuing the EOS-1v, its last film camera, as reported by PetaPixel.

Production of the EOS-1v — which was launched in 2000 — actually ceased back in 2010, but Canon continued to sell the remaining stock.

A professional 35mm SLR, the EOS-1v introduced Canon’s fifth generation of professional SLRs, and its body design became the basis for future cameras from the company, including the EOS-1D.

The translated page from Canon’s website delivers the news casually: “Thank you very much for your continued patronage of Canon products.

By the way, we are finally decided to end sales for the film single lens reflex camera ‘EOS - 1v.’”.

Although this means Canon is no longer selling any film cameras, it doesn’t spell the death of film — at least, not yet.

Nikon still sells two film cameras, the F6 and FM10. »

The U.S., Canada and Mexico are also involved in a tough renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

But the tariffs stung particularly in Canada, where Trudeau evoked the history of the two countries fighting together, from the beaches of Normandy to the mountains of Afghanistan.

Positive identification of attacking sharks is very difficult since victims rarely make adequate observations of the attacker during the “heat” of the interaction.

Tooth remains are seldom found in wounds and diagnostic characters for many requiem sharks – those in the Carcharhinidae family – are difficult to discern even by trained professionals.
