Canon this week officially ended sales of its last remaining film camera, the single lens reflex (SLR) EOS-1V.
Canon began selling film cameras under the name Hansa Canon in 1936.
While digital photography has been the standard for nearly two decades now, there's still a thriving community of film photographers.
Canon made its first film camera, the Kwanon, in 1934, which was named after the Buddhist god of mercy, Kwannon.

Obama asked ‘what if we were wrong?’ after Trump’s election
It notes, for instance, that Obama did his best to cheer up his aides in the days following the election. Angela Merkel reportedly had a tear in her eye after her final meeting with Barack Obama .
More specifically, it's ending sales of the final film camera it offered commercially, the EOS-1V.
Customers who own the camera can still contact Canon for support and repairs for the EOS-1V until October 31, 2025, at which point Canon will cease fixing the film camera as well.
Released all the way back in 2000, production of the 35mm SLR actually stopped in 2010, but it's taken this long for Canon to get rid of its inventory. Canon stated that they will "take fix measures until October 31, 2025", so long as parts allow. Just don't get your hopes up for buying a new one. After October 31, 2020, however, Canon may refuse repairs if it no longer has the necessary parts in stock to fix the cameras.
You'll probably still be able to pick up a used EOS-1V online, but like all vintage gear, it's going to be a lot more expensive than when it was available. There's also been a small resurgence in instant film cameras akin to those of the 80s and 90s; both Polaroid and Fujifilm sell simple instant-film cameras.
