Kodak to discontinue manufacture of Kodak Professional DCS Pro SLR/c and SLR/n as of June 30

Kodak will honor warrantees and service agreements for these Kodak Professional DCS models through the end of 2008.

According to Madhav Mehra, director, digital capture business strategy, Kodak remains committed to the professional photographer market and will concentrate on developing its highly regarded line of CCD sensors, which are now employed in digital SLRs and digital backs created by other camera manufacturers, as well as Kodak's printer and substrate products and lab solutions.

The Kodak representative would not go so far as to say that Kodak is not developing any professional digital cameras for the future, only that they plan to discontinue the DCS Pro SLR/c and SLR/n.
