    Well the Supreme Court switched to Digital composites only in 2017, up until then they always used color FILM.

    From NYT,

    "The 2017 official photograph, according to notes to an exhibit at the court, included an innovation. It looks like a class photo, but it is a composite.

    “This is the first official color group photograph for which color film was not used,” the notes said, “and the result is the first to combine each of the justices’ individual choices, from several poses, into a single image.” The photo appeared on the court’s website without acknowledgment that it was a composite."

    Was it a 5-4 vote to go digital, Randy?

    Unfortunately, in our 24 hour news cycle, a quick real time cell phone video is far superior to the best well made, after the fact, camera shot. The quality of the news photo mean little, compared to the fact that a cell phone video can be uploaded to social media with seconds after the picture is taken.

    If you want detailed and accurate documentation of the carnage of a natural disaster, quality photos matter. If you want a 10 second spot on the evening news, most any photo will do.
