Very nice article about the death of film camera makers. From Konica Minolta to Kodak, these folks are getting nailed left and right. That, however, is the way the cookie crumbles. For example, I was just talking to a friend who bought a 35mm Canon Rebel. He told me "This will be the last film camera I ever buy." While he had a point—it's a good camera and you can take good pictures with film—he eventually succumbed and bought a digital Rebel. While there's no accounting for taste and there is an immense body of work that proves that film is in many ways superior to the bit-fiddling that goes on inside a CCD, there's just no way to warrant the purchase of a film camera in this day and age, especially on the consumer side.
