Wondering whether anyone has used the color effect of B&W to take B&W photos versus converting color images. I thought the adjustment only changed the LCD but it also gives you B&W images. Don't know whether tonality, etc. is any good this way. Thoughts, experiences? Thanks.

I like to convert color images with post processing tools. I seem to get better results than in camera and still have a color image if I want to use it. 2cents.

Ditto Nooner.

First, the in-camera, though good, isn't as good as doingBW in post, and even if it was, your image is always B&W. Better to capture in color. Google OpticVerve, it's a free PS plug in with lots of filters and very good BW conversion with lots of settings to play with.

I prefer to set the camerato b&w. If I'm in a b&w mood I like to shoot in b&w. (Not to mention my general laziness and lack of interest in pping.)

I like doing both - either shoot in colour and then PShop the image or go straight to B&W in cam.
