In my opinion, interpolation is interpolation and therefore mostly useless
since it cannot produce detail which has not been acquired from the real
world. It's pure illusion. And I don't see where one would really need
interpolation - if you need it, you probably did something wrong in the
first place.

I'm not a professional photographer though.
