BRIEF EX­PO­SURES

Camera - - WHAT’S NEW -

Like us, you may be very sur­prised to learn that CANON’S EOS-1V 35mm SLR has re­mained avail­able all this time, but now it is to be dis­con­tin­ued and its statu­tory re­pair pe­riod will end in 2020. How­ever, Canon says it will con­tinue fac­tory re­pairs un­til Oc­to­ber 2025 pro­vided any re­quired parts are still avail­able. The EOS-1V was Canon’s 35mm pro-level flag­ship back in 2000 and was ca­pa­ble of 10 fps con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing or 9.0 fps with AF ad­just­ment. Its demise fol­lows that of the Leica M7 (see separate news item) so the choice of new 35mm film cam­eras, in par­tic­u­lar, is start­ing to get very small in­deed. Hope­fully, the ar­rival of the much-awaited new Ko­dak Ek­tachrome 100 slide film some time later this year may help turn things around for 35mm.
