Memory Cards Taking Over: CANON May Stop Film Camera Production

It seems that flash memory cards like SD and compact flash cards, are now making a very strong case of replacing film on photo cameras. It's just a matter of time.

One evidence of this is that Canon is now considering whether they should still continue to produce film cameras.

"A spokesman at Canon, the world's largest digital camera maker, said it would consider whether it needs to continue developing both compact and single lens reflex (SLR) film models because the markets for both are shrinking."
