    I read Hasselblad quite a few months ago. Leica makes a film cam. Who else makes high end film cams?

    Do Nikon and Canon no longer make pro-level film SLRs? Rolleiflexes are still being made. Cosina still makes the Voigtlander line of 35mm rangefinders, and the Voigtlander/Fuji medium format folding cameras.

    Canon 1V and Nikon F6. I'm not sure where exactly you can buy them other than eBay - so, it's strange then that both makers have a product 'section' dedicated to them on their websites. :confused:

    Does anyone know what kind of 'pro' uses either of these cameras? Bespoke advertising/fashion? Never heard anyone mention them on APUG, so there must be a specific market.

    Canon's web site still has the EOS 1v on it and Nikon has both the F6 and FM10

    At least a few months ago you could still buy a Canon 1V or Nikon F6 at B+H.

    I believe the FM10 is made for Nikon by Cosina.
