Why do you say this? If you screw up a photo using film or digital you have mess on your hands. You can have digital developed on an automatic processing machine just like film. The backend work for film versus digital can be the same. People get so caught up in what you can do post processing digital it seems overwhelming, but it's not necessary to get a good photo digitally.

The labs charge more to process digital if they have to screw around with it. With film, they color correct at a certain price, which is built into the price whether they color correct or not. With digital, they offer a really low price if they make no changes, but one little change and the whole thing jumps up in price to above the cost of film processing.

But, you have a good point, I probably haven't looked into it hard enough. If a lab would take my RAW images and make them into 4x6 proofs, at a reasonable price, I'd probably consider it. But, I haven't yet seen that offered at a reasonable price. What I have seen is them charging high prices for what I can do with film for much less.

That's why I say what I say. Either you pay more in money, or you pay more in time. Film still seems easier to me.
