    Kodak has today confirmed that the DCS Pro SLR/n and DCS Pro SLR/c digital
    SLRs have been discontinued and will no longer be manufactured. Kodak
    assures that existing owners will continue to be supported through 2008 and
    that this will include firmware and Photodesk updates if required.

    Kodak will continue to develop CCD and CMOS image sensors and this
    announcement does not affect their consumer digital cameras. Kodak was keen
    to stress that this does not mark the end of Kodak digital SLR's but that
    they wished to concentrate on market segments which are more profitable.

    The version introduced in 2002, the DCS 14/n was the one that was
    of little use outside of the studio. The DCS Pro SLR/n and DCS Pro
    SLR/c used a different sensor that wasn't nearly as limiting. One
    review I've read indicated that "the new model's output remains
    excellent at 200", "at ISO 400, some chroma noise creeps into the
    shadows", and "I'd only shoot at 800 if forced." It's still not the
    fastest kit on the block, but can be taken outside when it behaves.
