Believe it or not, but I put my FinePix s5000 camera in the refrigerator for a couple of hours and it fixed the problem! Weird? I'd say. My friend recommended this to me. He has a laptop that wouldn't boot and the cold frig fixed it.

Maybe it's the contacts on the circuit board shrinking to make a better connection, but whatever it does - it fixed my camera for now.... I'm keeping my fingers crossed though. HA

Unfortunately the camera does not have a menu option to take images in black or white or sepia. You can take them in color and then using photo editing software modify the image to be monotone or sepia in color.

How to shoot in black and white?


This camera is not capable to shoot images in black and white as this is not a menu selectable feature of this camera. You can take the image in color and then download it to your computer and then using photo editing software change the image to black and white or monotone using the edit function in that photo editing program.

How to shoot in black and white???


This camera does not have the capability to shoot images in black and white. What you need to do is to take the images in color, download them to computer and then use photo editing software to then be in black and white. Most software applications have that as an editing option.

Hey marafioti14,
What you need to do is select shooting mode and then under that you need to select program mode, and under program menu you need to select the color mode which should allow you to set the camera to take black and white photographs. This being said I would suggest instead of shooting the images in black and white it would be better to convert them to black and white using computer software. It is likely that the software that came with the camera allows you to convert any image to black and white. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
