I usually use DSLR to shoot photos, including BW. My E-P3 arrived yesterday. I found that the monochrome modes is not real black and white. It's more like grey. This is the example : DSLR - View attachment 179370 E-P3 View attachment 179371 I can change the one that produced by e-p3 so it will be more vivid but maybe someone can tell me how to do that from inside the camera. * and yeah, a black object seems to be so noisy even at ISO 200. I've disabled Noise Filter and noise reduction is Auto.
