    Very few CMOS cameras have global shutters, for example.
    No film camera ever made had a global shutter so.........

    As good as. I think that the mirror shutter can be improved little bit, but that is a topic for another day.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

The ones I know about: the A9 (practically global, but not technically), the Venice, the FX9 (like the A9, very good, but not 100%), and the Komodo (which is going to kick serious butt in the market, including the DSLR/DSLM segment). Sony does make a TV oriented 2/3" 3-chip CMOS camera which as a global shutter, the Z750 which hasn't been released yet. But we haven't finished.

    No matter how good sensors are, they still fail in extreme situations. I have not yet seen a camera that can capture lights properly. Film has always been good at this, except for CineStill, which is Vision3 with the Remjet removed. And there is the issue of movement, which is somewhat subjective. Super 8 still looks better than any digital camera, as unsuitable as it is for large screens. I'm happy to call a complete win for digital, but not today.
    In a first paragraph you have a point regarding rolling shutter artefacts (distortion/half exposed frames in flashes).
    But this is related to temporal properties of image capture and has nothing to do with LUTs.

    Venice, FX9 and A9 don't have global shutter.
    There is no "practically" regarding a type of shutter and something in between. Sensor readout speed and type of readout are two different things.

    Regarding failing in extreme situations and what you have or have not seen - that sidetracks from what the statement was. Everything fails in extreme situations, that is not a flaw but a usage limitation. You stated that digital flaws cannot be corrected with a LUT. For tonally related flaws, and unnatural image properties coming from tonal response, yes they can be.
    Obviously, motion handling is something else. And DR.
