I don't need Michael to tell me that...what we can do is BUY IT! If enough people continually pay for it, it will remain a mainstream product.Originally Posted by Jim Chinn
I think the notion of its becoming a niche product is a fantasy. Products made in capital and labor intensive heavy industries don't become niche products when the market dries up. They disappear.
The barriers to entry into such an enterprise are too high for it to re-emerge as a cottage industry. If not enough people support the manufacture of photographic paper, it will go the way of vinyl phonograph records and typewriters. There are still people out there using these things, but nobody is manufacturing them.
