Re: Film Vs Digital (not the usual question)

It is possible to take the raw data and create software that emulates a film development, as well as the print process.  I am surprised if no one has such a product already, but the nice thing would be that you could reprocess the same image over and over, unlike film, until you got what you wanted.  It would be best to start with an oversampled image (that is, subdiffraction limit pixels) and use just the red green and blue planes.

Still, I don't understand the rant about postprocessing.  Seems to me that a great portion of the art of photography is now in the postprocessing (the rest is probably in technical and artistic composition) and making an image that is something more than just a recording of what one would have or could have seen with the naked eye.
