    I only thought about this due to the B & W contest...and since I don't have anything other than iPhoto currently to turn my shots to black and white...or use the sort of cool retro B&W art filter, I started looking through my Magic Lantern Guide for the E-P1 and came upon this section that deals with in camera editing.

    Before I start fooling around with it I wondered if any of you have used it?

    I'm guessing that most use various other methods that we've discussed a bit on the B & W software thread https://www.mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=491&highlight=software

    Any thoughts or experience?

    Yes, this would be a good one for a brief video... all you need to do, is shoot raw, and then select an Art Filter (say B&W Grainy Film) mode... then

    Menu->Play (3rd menu down)->EDIT->SEL. IMAGE

    move to your raw file and OK->RAW DATA EDIT->YES

    Away you go! give it a try, memory is cheap :yahoo:

    Well, I didn't shoot RAW this time because I have yet to have anywhere to put the files but apparently it's available with jpeg, too....so I shall give it a try and see... To be sure I'll download them first and save them in the camera.

    Thanks Brian.:drinks:

    In case anyone's interested in this, I tried it with the jpegs that I'd shot the other day. It couldn't be easier to do this in camera deal, though I only chose direct to B & W and didn't delve into shadows, etc. I'll post an example for your viewing pleasure. The only thing I did to the B & W afterwards was to tweak it slightly with iPhoto. I have no doubt that real software could do much more...
