Japanese Nikon has announced that it will stop manufacturing most of its film products to focus on digital cameras. The measure includes discontinuing production of all large format Nikkor lenses and enlarging lenses, several camera bodies, manual focus Nikkor interchangeable lenses and related accessories. Sales of these products, according to the company, will cease as supplies come to an end. Nikon will keep only two film cameras in its lineup: the F6 and the FM10. Film bodies represented only 3% of the US$ 1.5 billion sold by its camera and imaging division in the fiscal year ended in March 2005.
