Re: Black and white

I found the user manual to your camera online and it states that you can only use black and white, and sepia when shooting movies. Here is a link to that manual Page number 32 is where it talks about using this option. Hope this helped.

All <b>digital cameras</b> shoot in color, but it'seasy turn your images into black and white, either on your <b>PC</b> or the device itself. For a powerful shot in <b>black</b> and <b>white</b>, and forget to<b> focus</b> on contrasts between them.

How do i change the picture on my camera from coloured to black and white ?

You can select the color mode to Black and white to shoot images in black and white. If you have already captured the images in color, you can use a software in computer to change the color mode to black and white.

Thanks for understanding.

Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

How to switch from color to black and white setting on camera body

I advise you not to do this. If you want your shots in black and white, it is very easy to convert them in an image editing program on a computer. However, if you take the pictures using the black and white setting on the camera, you can never convert them back to the original colour. This also applies to the other effects offered by some cameras- a computer program will give you any effect that the camera can, and more, and do them better, without locking you in. Offering these settings in a camera is just a gimmick.

How do you take black and white pictures?

Press MENU to display the menu, then select the Shooting menu.

The first item should be "Color", which lets you select the color mode. You can choose B&W for black-and-white or Sepia for sepia-toned.

Take a look under "Shooting Menu" in your manual. It's on page 32 in my copy.

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!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
