The fantastic colors captured by the Leica lens tend to make us forget the black and white option under Color Effect on the Menu. Don't. There are alot of wonderful b&w opportunities out there particularly at this time of year when the sun is low in the sky and casting long shadows. Here is one such shot with the fz1 in b&w mode.

Very, very true. This is an excellent example. Although I heard/read that the in-camera B&W isn't the optimal way to do it, and that a plug-in or action (assuming you're using PS) is prefered, this photo proves that wrong. Looks terrific.

Thanks for the comment, Nick. I much prefer using the b&w setting vs grayscale or whatever after the fact. For one thing, you need to see how those shadows stick out when framing the shot. AND I trust my fz1 implicitly.

one interesting thing i have started doing is to set b&w on the main menu (p,a,s,m) and leave it there. if i want color, i just turn the knob to scene 1 or 2and color comes on. easy to go back and forth. jim
