      Declining markets do not necessarily lead to price increases, although
      long-term availability at any cost is a legitimate concern. While the
      variety of competitive products within all realms of traditional photography
      has seen a dramatic decrease within the past five years, thus far there has
      been no "astronomical" price increase. I expect that lith film will remain a
      fairly stable niche product at least through 2010. Beyond that is anybody's
      guess--but keep in mind that coating basic ortho photo emultion onto clear
      plastic isn't exactly rocket science. Even if films become no longer
      commercially available your average high school science student could still
      make something close at home with a sponge and a little practice.
