    That's because a vast majority of them never truly 'KNEW' film to begin with.

    I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon, but I geuss that could change in the future when people decide to go back to film. Medium format and large format could see new models coming out.

    Why the need for "new ones"!?
    What's wrong with the ones we have??
    Why should it be necessary to release new SLRs to attract people to film photography?

    Well said. It would give the warm and fuzzies to one to see new film gear being produced on a grand scale. However, it is rather far-fetched that it will happen. You know, progress and all.
    Thank you.

    Here is a link to a review: http://www.crunchgear.com/2009/05/18...nual-film-slr/
    FWIW, the timing claims on this are a bit off -- although it could be that Vivitar waited a while before introducing it in some markets. I bought a used Vivitar V3800N in 2005. It was in excellent condition when I bought it, and I don't know how old it was -- it could be the original purchaser just kept it for a month and then put it up on eBay. I didn't get most of the extras mentioned in the review -- just the camera, 50mm lens, and strap. I'm satisfied with the camera -- but I own several others with varying feature sets, so if I want a motor drive or auto exposure or a bigger format I've got other options.

    Yeah, the Vivitar V3800N has been around for the better part of a decade. Caught that but forgot to point it out.
    Thank you.

    Why do you believe film will die if new equipment is not released? There's so much used equipment out there. I'm sure in 50 years if all of it suddenly breaks we might see new stuff though.

    Already the still digital camera are beginning to be eclipsed by digital video cameras. Both Canon and Nikon have several dual purpose cameras that shoot both. The digital cameras of recent past will be cast aside for the latest digital video cameras.

    And they won't have the following that press cameras have 70 years later either.
    Thank you.
