Sorry if this has been covered before, but I wanted to share some images taken with the B+W Art Filter on the EM-5. I must say, I quite like the way the camera has rendered them, particularly the high contrast. I chose to use this filter because the sky over London during our photo walk around St Paul's was overcast (lending images to a B+W treatment), and I have shot London to death and wanted to try something new. I always usually shoot RAW, but the camera captures these B+W images as JPEGs, which saves one having to process them afterwards. But the camera also saves each image as an original RAW file too, which I think is enormously handy. Anyway, if you have used any of these in-camera Art filters please do share, and if not, do try them out; you may be pleasantly surprised.
It may seem a little lazy, or even a cheat, to get the camera to apply the filter for you, but you still have to pay attention to composition and subject before taking the shot. Had I chosen to make them B+W after the fact I would have had to process them myself anyway, and letting the camera do it in its pleasing way simply saves me some time.
Regards,
AW.

All shot with the Olympus 12-40mm F/2.8.

Nice job! I really like the grain B&W filter myself too. I think your portrait at the end of the set came out really great and totally suits the processing that the camera has applied.
There is also something really cool about only worrying about composition and just letting the camera do it's thing.

"Dynamic Tone" Art Filter renders good b&w when you switch it from color to b&w.

Couldn't agree more. I'm totally hooked to SOOC JPEG B&W images right now. I use Monotone setting with +2 contrast and +1 sharpness. And just can't stop using this setting and 'downgrade' back to color :). Of course I shoot RAW+JPEG if I change my mind....
