  2. Why not? You can buy a photoshop plugin that simulates the effect of
    a color filter on monchomatic film from a color digital picture.

    Like it in black and white? Just a few clicks away. Missed that red filter?
    Use the plugin. Oops, a green one would have been better, Undo and the
    plugin again.

    I've never had the time, but I've always wanted to write a "film" plugin
    for the GIMP. Use it to adjust the transformation of a black and white
    picture from a color one. according the color and intensity response of
    a particular film. For me the biggies would be TRI-X, KB14, T-MAX 100.

    Besides --- colour film has replaced black and white already. Less than 5
    percent of the market uses slides or black and white film - I don't know an
    exact breakdown but I suspect B/W couldn't be more than 2.5 % of the total
    film market.
