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.
