Kodak and Fuji wish this were the case

Kodak might still be in business, and Fuji a lot better off, if this fantasy had any truth.

Even back in the Ice Age, grease pigments on secure cave walls weren't the de facto standard.  Scratches in the sand or body decorations were more common, but simply did not last.

Even in cases where there are "de facto standards," most have no reliable significance.

  • What do "man hours" tell us about production or earnings? Perhaps little.
  • What is a "batting average" if we don't know the games played?
  • What do megapixels matter, if we don't know lens or sensor quality?
  • Does camera price, or do camera specifications, tell us anything at all about whether viewers will like a picture or not?
