Interesting point. In the olden days we used to discuss lens and film
qualities as camera bodies were regarded as making a relatively
neutral contribution to images. Digibodies are now front and center
with meaningful discourse about optics occurring only amongst the
cognoscenti, i.e., Us.
The different palettes offered by film are gone (except for the 'faux'
ones in the Fuji S3) with their closest approximation being
modifications that can be made in an image editor. Popular
Photography and Imaging recently had a column/tutorial showing us how
to create 'Velvia-like' color in Photoshop.
