Back in December, Cosina announced they discontinued Zeiss Ikon camera bodies.
Now it is Hasselbad to announce the discontinuation of the V System after over 50 years, having manufactured the last 503CW body.

The Kodak DCS is Kodak 1991 Digital SLR based on a Nikon F3. Kodak was pioneer in the area and Nikonweb interview James McGarvey who designed these.
Six models were priced from $20,000 to $25,000. A total of 987 units were sold from 1991 to 1994.

That’s right, they were scared to disrupt their own business. But it got disrupted by the competition and now we see were Kodak is: between the rock and the hard place.
