I`ve got a D50 and i`m thinking of buying a D80 for a number of reasonsbut mainly because of it`s black & white feature.

I love to take B & W pictures, i would even say i woudn`t mind taking only B & W pictures.This is a pretty big problem when your camera can only take them in colour and you have to work at them each at the time to turn them into B & W.

Could someone who has a D80 tell me if you can configure the settings..personalise the exposure,contrast and slight filter effects so that all the pictures come out in the same way?

Maybe someone could show me a few pics made this way ?

From what i have read in the previews , this seems to be possible.

I just got my D80 today. I haven't tried the B&W feature, however, I prefer to convert in post work, rather than in camera. You can easily create an action in PS to conert an image to black and white. If you take the image in B&W mode, you are stuck with it....shooting in color gives me the option of printing it either way.

If you create an action, you can convert the entire batch at once. Then you can do tiny adjustments on each image as needed. No big deal.
