After 80 years in the film business, Canon has ceased production on its EOS-1V, its final film camera. After launching its first 35mm focal-plane-shutter camera back in 1937, Canon produced a series of high-end, well-received rangefinders and SLR cameras that brought high acclaim, but the Japanese company’s focus has shifted towards digital cameras since Canon debuted its first digital camera, the RC-701, in 1984. For years, the EOS-1V was Canon’s sole option for professional film photographers, but it was a tremendously important camera for the company — first launched in 2000, the EOS-1V’s design paved the way for Canon’s modern EOS DSLR offering. Production on the camera actually ended back in 2010, but Canon was able to ship and sell models from its inventory for the past eight years.

The Japanese company will continue offering repairs for the EOS-1V until October 31, 2025, as most parts will still be manufactured in small supply.

Canon recently announced its plan to shift focus to mirrorless cameras.
