Mike, I am old enough to remember using B/W mainly Tri X which when processed by local chemists was truly crap, put me off B/W for life. So glad when I was able to shoot slides, Agfa or Fujicolour, which was a revelation. So after that (1960s) I have never shot B/W since.
Also since watching four different photo graphic fora, I rarely see any B/W image worth the electrons it takes to publish it, most are badly processed files that shouldn’t be classified as B/W, they are normally “Grey & Grey” awful. And of course we all live in a colourful world, hence the built in technology of cameras to give us glorious colourful images!
P.S. all modern digital cameras give great colour images SOOC!
