    Future of 35 mm SLR

    In the past, during the reign of film, camera manufacturers used to depend on Kodak-Fuji-Ilford-Agfa to come up with new films with new properties that gave the users new and improved experiences.

    Now in the d...l age there are few new films coming out and the pixel count of a DX or FX sensor can not grow much above present values. What will the future of 35 mm SLR be? Ever more in-camera software? Or will the SLR merge with the camcorder?
    How will Nikon-Canon be able to get punters to buy a new camera every 3 year as they have done during the last decade?
    Is there a major paradigm shift in the 35 mm SLR future?

    What are your valued opinion?

    Well with d****** there won't be any new 35mm SLRs anyway. Unless someone discovers that CCDs and CMOSs cause cancer or something.

    A digital SLR is still an SLR (Single Lens Reflex)

    Ah you mean SLRs in general? In the future we can expect to shoot HD video and pick out interesting stills. Computers and memory will be large and powerful enough to handle the huge files.

    Well, you should care. If development of d...l SLR:s runs into a brick wall it could make way for a new film SLR.

    Is this really the future of photography? I hope not but fear you might be right. How many photographers will convert to film rather than shooting video?

    They have already re-invented the wheel and sold millions of cameras to people who already had them, they will to find some other gimmick to keep the wheels of commerce and industry turning

    New 35mm *film* SLRs? No future at all would be my guess. 2 weeks ago I bought a new D300s. Today I received a mint Nikon F100 and at first blush it looks like (new-to-me) 35mm SLR has the best future

    Are they still making new F6s?

    Yes but it's not a 35 mm SLR. I also reckon that the development of the 35 mm SLR had peaked at the time of the digital introduction and any changes were purely cosmetic.
