My point is this when you scan film it doesn't 'lose' it's film like qualities.

Never said it did...said it did loose the "film like quality" when you then use a computer screen as the final display output for film.

So you're saying you never said it loses it's film like quality when scanned, only when viewed on a screen!

Yes, much of the "film look" is lost when a film scan is viewed in a browser vs viewed on real photo paper hanging in a gallery.  Many examples here prove that.

Even though each final medium presents the image in a different way it in no way fundamentally changes the 'overall look' of the originating file–if it did all digital transmission methods would be worthless.

Worthless might not be the best word but if your intent is to show film in all it's glory...output to a computer screen may indeed be worthless in that regard.
