I first started taking B&W photos as a child in the 1950s with "box" cameras and eventually did B&W processing in my parent's bathroom as a teenager. I soon "progressed" from B&W to colour slides. My first SLR was a Zenith, and I now own a Canon EOS 630 which I use to take colour slides, and I also own a Canon IXUS Z90 APS compact camera which I use when I don't want to lug all my heavy kit around. <p> As I've grown older, fond memories of those early days in my first "darkroom" have led me to consider returning to B&W photography. I jokingly told my wife that I needed a new body(!), and planned to buy another EOS body just for B&W. However, I was soon seduced by the attractions of medium format and ended up buying a second-hand Yashica Mat 124G for pretty much the same as another EOS body would have cost me. I've now converted our utility room, so that I can turn it into a darkroom within 10 minutes and am now doing my own processing once again. I'm quite delighted with the results from my Yashica Mat 124G. What a great camera this is. Is it still in production?
