Which answers why the big camera makers were so fond of digital technology: why would they sell you a camera once in ten years and then watch you hand over your money to Kodak, Fuji and Ilford from then on if they could sell you a new camera every few years, which means all your photo money goes to them? Combine this with the "old camera == bad camera" meme and there's a lot of money to be made. And let's face it: that is what marketing is for.
