Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens
Can I set the Canon Rebel to shoot in black & white? I have a older model Canon Rebel and would like to use the infrared filters with it.
No, you can reduce the saturation but not go mono, (in the parameters settings)
You will need to adjust the colour balance and convert to mono in photoshop (or similar)
There are quite a few articles on the web regarding shooting in IR with the rebel, best results can be obtained with a modification to the camera http://ghonis2.ho8.com/rebelmod.html (reversable by using a IR cut filter for non IR shots) as it contains quite a strong IR filter which means although it is possibler without modification exposures will be quite long with IR filters and focusing difficult as the auto wont work and you will be able to see very little trough the viewfinder once the IR filter is on.
Here are a few articles, they may not relate to your exact model but all the eos cameras are somewhat similar.
people who will mod the camera for you.

Im sure there are many others.
Best of luck
