    Lightbulb Setting B&W

    Hey 'Gazer ...


    1. With the Mode Selector Knob (right), set it to "M" Mode.
    2. Turn the left knob to "DEC" and press the center button
    3. In the "Color / DEC" menu of the LCD ... use the rear multi-selector to choose "B&W" selection* and press the center button of the selector.


    It should now be able to generate B&W shots.

    * Remember: "AUTO" and the other "creative" modes will override this B&W setting and only allows color exposures to be available.

    P, S, A & M Modes allow for B&W exposures.

    Hope this helps ...

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    It's not immediately obvious, that's for sure. I actually came across it when I switched my images from the sRGB colorspace to AdobeRGB.

    You will notice they are right there, along with the B&W option.
