Canon officially farewells film with discontinuation of the EOS-1V

The last such camera was released in 2000, with the name EOS-1V, year and not sold until now, even official sales had ended in 2010.

I own a 1V, and it's by far one of my favorite cameras.

When Canon built its very first digital camera in 1986, few would have looked ahead and seen digital killing off film. People began to go back to basics and use film cameras, saying that so lovely.

The EOS-1V was also the inspiration for numerous designs of the bodies of Canon's other camera lineups, so some parts of its legacy will at least survive. It's an awesome experience. However it is the first time that Canon hasn't offered a film camera since the 30s, when its parent company started offering a device called the "Kwanon".

Canon officially refused to produce film cameras.

It would be hard to tell the story of Canon without mentioning its film cameras. The company began in 1937 making camera bodies and sourcing lenses from Nikkor, now Nikon. Canon EOS-1V sales are now being laid to rest and with that brings the end of an era.

According to Canon's statement, it will fix existing EOS-1v units until October 31st, 2025, although fix requests may be denied after October 31st, 2020, depending on remaining parts and inventory.

That's not film's only legacy - my three-year-old has a Peppa Pig camera toy that makes the unmistakeable click and auto-wind sound of a film camera when you hit the button. It is noted that users still prefer a camera with instant printing.
