Most people would probably mention this as the death of film, but rarely do you find an article or admission from an industry specialist confirming the fact. ARRI has been extremely successful with their ALEXA camera since its introduction but who’d thought they’d actually stop making film cameras altogether.
Quote from ARRI’s Martin Frillman Interview:
Q: How much longer do you think you’ll continue supporting 35 millimeter film camera production?
A: Well, as I said, we might not be building the equipment, but we will be supporting it.
