Aloha, so if I set my digital to record B&W - should I use filters as per when we used B&W film?

Well, color digital cameras have built-in red, green, and blue filters, and in combination yellow, magenta, and cyan. So additional color filters typically won’t add anything, and may even be counterproductive.

I find it useful to shoot with the camera set to monochrome mode, which helps visualization, but as I’m shooting raw, all the color channels are preserved, allowing me more control over the conversion process.
