If only the camera manufacturers had figured this out. Instead of
Fuji upsampling, they should take the image from the S2 and
downsample it to 640x480. Imagine the striking detail and pixel
density.

Actually, they have. When you shoot a RAF file in an S2 (the raw format), the camera also saves a quarter-size JPEG as the preview image (1440x960) and embeds it in the file. There is NO demosaicing in this JPEG, and it is quite sharp and free from artifacts. Printed on an Epson inkjet, you get a 4x6" photo that's as good as it gets. If you want to print bigger, well, there's the rub...
