Nikon has said it plans to stop making most of its traditional film cameras and focus on digital ones instead – a move would enable it to play a stronger role in an "increasingly competitive" digital marketplace. Other firms, such as Eastman Kodak, have also signalled their intention to focus on the digital market.
Nikon will end production of all lenses for its large format cameras, as well as most of its film camera bodies, interchangeable manual focus lenses and other related accessories. It will continue to manufacture the flagship F6 film camera in recognition of "Nikon’s commitment to professional photographers".
