The TG-310 does not have any way of taking black&white photos, nor does it offer a method to convert photos to black&white. However, you can convert a color photo to black&white (or sepia, or cyanotype, or a lot of other effects) using just about any photo editing program on a computer. This actually gives you more control over the conversion, as you can control things like contrast and brightness.
The SP 800UZ doesn't have a black-and-white or sepia mode. You can convert a color picture to black-and-white or sepia by editing the picture on the camera. Full details are in the "Edit" section of the manual (page 38 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at
In general, you're better off converting to black-and-white or sepia using photo editing software on a computer rather than doing it on the camera. The computer will give you much better control over things like brightness and contrast.
You can produce sepia-toned images by selecting the picture effect.
In general, you're much better off shooting in color and converting to black-and-white using a photo editor on a computer. Once the conversion is done by a camera, you're stuck with it. Doing it on a computer gives you much more control over things like contrast and brightness.
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.
