Default Can Post Processing ' Upgrade' camera??!

On the subject of upgrading cameras,say to a later, or different
version,which is said to provide better photo quality. It occurs to me
that post processing images from the ealier model might have the effect
of 'levelling up' the difference, so that this can catch up with the
'improvement'.

I would be interested to hear the thoughts of other members.

Most camera upgrades involve the pixel count, shutter speed response, or
improved lenses.

None of these things can be 'upgraded' by software at a later date. The
latter 2 only have an influence on the picture taken at the time the picture
is taken.

Upgrades or not, a good camera still takes good pictures. Don't get caught
up on the upgrade cycle. Either you are a photographer, or you're a gadget
geek. When your camera is old and broken, replace it.

Not quite the same, but there was a thread in aus.photo called "Fixing Focus
in post processing" recently.
It may be worth checking out a couple of news items referred to there.

But, those post-processing tools could also "advance/improve" the output of
the latest cameras. One would assume that a later camera would still
outperform an earlier model if the later camera truly had better features.

Just looking at three issues: (1) resolution ... upsampling is not a
substitute for better sensor resolution. (2) noise ... noise reduction
software is not a substitute for a lower-noise sensor. (3) dynamic range
.... two or more shots can be combined to improve dynamic range, but it
requires a tripod.

My basic answer to your question is "no."
