processing vs. post-processing

PP standard for Post processing. no pp simply means no processing was done post image coming out of camera. it doesnt mean there was no processing.

The difference is when the processing decisions are made.  With OOC JPEG, transparency film, and Polaroid film almost all of the decisions must be fixed before you press the shutter button.   The "must" is also important to some: it's possible to pre-visualize an image will need extensive post (ala A. Adams) and shoot to optimize the capture with those steps in mind.  What the anti-PP people really don't like is the ability to make additional creative decisions after examining the capture data, i.e. if you did not see it at capture time, you must go back and reshoot.
