General Question Electronics Pricing

Hi

I’m curious if anyone really knows how consumer prices work. How they fluctuate.

For example, a new photo printer comes out, it is marked as $299.99. 1-2 years later it might sell for $60.00. Then a few years later, sells for $500-700.

Seems to be similiar trend for cameras. Why do sellers hold cameras at near new retail value even after many years have gone by? So they rather hold inventory even after many years vs. heavily discounting?

I guess it also depends if that electronic product is consider disposable, made to go fail after few years so you are forced to buy new. Some by reputation, hold their value.
