Tip of the Week (#014) - Digital B&W Shooting

B&W photography - not just for film shooters! If you shoot an M9 (for example) use the "User Profile" feature to your advantage! Set your "Compression" to "DNG & JPG" (SET), "Color saturation" to "Black & White" (MENU) and ISO to 400 (ISO) or so. Finally, "Save user profile" (MENU) and give it a name like "BlackWhit" (as seen above). Either use the JPEG out of the camera, or if you convert to B&W on the computer - this will give you a B&W preview on the LCD to help visualize your shots. Either way, quick B&W mode!
