Default D100 question

I was just reading Steve's review of the D100 and didn't find the answer. Will the D100 do B&W or Sepia tone pictures?

I could be wrong, but I don't believe so.

You can always take a color picture and change it to that in PhotoShop.

I don't think D100 had that b/w or sepia itself.

But You can use change B/w or Sepia in Nikonview 6 edit better than Photoshop.

I recommend you use RAW than Jpeg because of Lab process with Nikonview edit.

For example: I used Raw to Nikonview edit for adjust contrast or sharp or change b/w /or sepia and EV -/+ or daylight or auto whatever, leave original size. Save to Tif format then go to photoshop open tif then use CROP you want...

YOu will see what I talk about... yourself find that your way to do.

Good Luck

With RAW on my D100 (and I don't use anything else) I do all my post processing in Nikon View (exposure, contrast, crop, resize, sharpening, print and Internet).

D100 does not do B and W.
Use Photo Editing software to get the colour out

I usually convert my images in Photoshop (but it is easily done in other programs) using channel mixer. I change to monochrome mode, then set red to 20%, green to 70%, and blue to 10%. The result is much better than just desaturating an image, specially for skin tones. Desaturating an image often makes the skin and lips of a person seem the same tone, going through the channel mixer fixes that. But you may wish to adjust the settings to suit your specific need, as long as the sum of the values for each channel is 100% (ie. 20+70+10=100). You may however adjust past 100% if that gives the effect you desire
