DailyTech – Canon to Abandon Its Film Camera Development

DailyTech is reporting that Canon is abandoning film in favor of going all digital. Konica-Minolta has already done so, and Nikon made a similar announcement earlier this year, so I guess this was to be expected. Film as we know it will probably never completely disappear (not in our lifetime anyway), but we’ve long been to the point where quality in a digital camera surpassed that of a film-based one.

Personally, I feel that Canon’s digital cameras are the best on the market, and the fact they they are moving to all-digital means more R&D money in the digital camp, so two-thumbs up for Canon.
