>>...that digital imaging is a new form of alternative process

Bob Schramm<<

I take issue with that terminology and would hate to see this list
become overwhelmed by discussions of digital capture technologies and
output devices. As marvelous as digital cameras, scanners, printers and
inkjet prints are, the latter are not true photographic prints formed by
the direct action of light but a rather different beast. There are
other more appropriate forums for digital discourse related to capture
and output IMO.

Currently, when it comes to digital technologies, the list has confined
itself largely to discussions of how to make a digital negative to be
utilized in making an alternative process photographic print. I think
that is as it should be since the final outcome from that process and
light attenuator is an actual photograph.
