I'm wondering why the imitation of the old b&w film days is mimicked so much. The cameras of today are pretty much noise free, & with software, you are able to eliminate almost all noise & grain. So why would you add these elements, especially in post-processing. Surely b&w should be evolving, & not regressing to the days of inferior equipment. I'm the first to admire the old masters, & to learn from them, but to use the tools of today.
