No matter! As an early tech-adopter i got my first digital camera when they were bad, REALY bad. 640 by 480 grainy pictures with terrible white balance and color processing. Thankfully those days are over. Today's digital cameras have unbelievable crisp sensors capable of discerning between a gazillion colors and do it more than eight million times in one exposure. Let me rephrase that: It processes the difference between 16 million colors AND it does it 8 million times in one exposure. With such an amazing and jaw-dropping technology, why do people completely ignore it by doing this:

40 years worth of color reproduction technology development disintegrated at the hands of a cheap digital filter.
There are a number of occasions when low-tech approaches end up giving a better result than their high-tech digital counterparts. I prefer the bold, latency-free sound given by analog sound procesors, or heating up a burrito in a stove instead of beaming high-energy radiation to it, but trashing the color information on a once-near-perfect photograph will always make me squirm in anguish.
