I've got two Nikon digital cameras, an old Coolpix 900 and a newer Coolpix 5400. I'd like to try taking some artsy black & whites for framing. Not sure whether it would be better to use the older 900 which has a black & white mode or shoot with the newer 5400 in color and change to black & white either in iPhoto (probably not a good choice) or with Photoshop.
Any thoughts? I used to take quite a few black & whites with my regular 35mm slr. Finding a good local lab to develop the film is getting harder and harder.

Why using that CP900, when you have a great CP5400 with an awesome lens and lots of megapixels? What if you took a BW photo and it actually was better incolor? This could happen you know.

Take your CP5400 and shoot in RAW mode, convert til TIFF and use one of the methods on my website to convert. There's 5 different ways - the two last ones are far the best.

Here's the direct links:




Good luck

Thanks for the tip. I don't believe my CP5400 has a RAW mode.
I will check out your links though.
