Kodak drops film-based cameras

— 4:19 AM on January 14, 2004

In a move that could be the beginning of a new era in mass market digital photography, Kodak will be dropping film-based cameras from its North American product lines. In addition to its deep lineup of digital products, Kodak will continue to sell film-based disposables in North America, but only emerging markets will have access to reloadable 35-millimeter fare.

With the price of low-end digital cameras dropping, it's only a matter of time before the majority of camera users move to megapixels. Even among my less computer savvy friends and family, 35-millimeter cameras are quickly being replaced with digital equivalents.
