Speaking of Photoshop and in-camera separations, have a look at

It's an amazing display of color photographs taken in pre-Revolutionary
Russia (1909-1912 and 1915) by Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii.

Using a special camera, he took three shots of a scene in quick
succession through red, green and blue filters. All three shots were
recorded on one plate. A positive from the plate was displayed through
a three-lens projector with the appropriate filters.

His negatives found their way to the U.S. Library of Congress, which
used Photoshop to enhance the images and assemble the separations into
full-color images.

Some of the results are just amazing. I'm especially fond of a portrait
of the Emir of Bukhara.

A 5x7 three-shot camera, plus with Photoshop and Sandy's carbro color
skills, sounds like a formidable combination.
