Red face Convert from colour to Black & White.

Can anyone tell me if you can convert a colour image to Monochrome in camera? (I thought you could, & needed to do it yesterday, but just could not remember how to do it) & its driving me mad!

Re: Convert from colour to Black & White.

Page 67 of the manual

Picture mode = monotone

This then opens up some 'fake' coloured filters.

Only applicable if you shoot jpg.

Hope this helps

(personally I prefer doing bw conversion in pp as this gives you more options to control the mix/merge of colour channels)
