And guess what? NO post-processing AT ALL was possible with slide film (which also happened to have a very narrow dynamic range...).
So, for SOME at least (me included), there is pleasure in sticking to straight-out-of-camera JPEGs, and being forced to THINK more before tripping the shutter to make sure one gets everything right (exposure, white balance, dynamic range settings, etc.) in camera.
...which finally brings us to my choice of camera gear:
Fujifilm produce relatively compact and sturdy "mirrorless" camera bodies with direct 'old school' controls, a range of high-quality fixed focal length ("prime") AF lenses, and an electronically-coupled adapter for M-mount MF lenses. Thanks to many decades of experience in producing photographic film, they also know a thing or two about how to achieve gorgeous colour and tone.
So, all in all, this 'kit' allows me to get very pleasing out-of-camera JPEGs, without having to resort to the crutch of post processing in order to "fix" defects such as colour, tone, chromatic aberration, flare, etc.
