Most images where people have paid (in one case, over $4 million) huge prices have been from film,
printed on photosensitive paper.  Some are not old as might be expected either.  So is it the
perceived exclusivity of the film-based print that makes it worth so much more than the output of
digital cameras?  After all, once a digital printer is set-up, it can output any number of identical
prints whereas it is much harder to do that with a colour or especially a black and white print on
photo-paper.
