That is what can be infered from a Reuters UK news article.
After other firms (like Nikon, most prominently) who have already left this dwindling market, Canon would be considering it. At least, there is some lack of precision since the news bit has been modified by the authors after first publication. What was very affirmative is now only “considered”.
Anyway, it is clear that Canon has to consider very seriously the fact that film cameras are no longer selling reasonably well (everybody wants a digital camera, and only that – whatever the price). It has been said repetitively that Canon is no longer manufacturing but just selling the stocks despite the lack of communication on this issue.
