    I would be glad of some assistance. I shoot with JPEG + RAW normally. I thought I would use multi film to add black and white so that If the shot looked good I would use the RAW file to produce a better b&w shot.

    I set up 2 'films' in multi mode, normal colour and B&W. Then set 'autobracket'

    When I shoot I get the colour and B&W jpegs but 2 RAW files where I only need one.

    What am I doing wrong. Any help would be gratefully received

    When you use multi film bracketing the camera fires for each film type. It doesn't process multiple jpegs from one shot. In other words, this is the normal behavior and you're not doing anything wrong.

    When I want B&W I set the camera for one of the B&W modes and shoot raw+jpeg. That way I see B&W in the finder and have a reference jpeg for processing the raw file. I also have the color image if I change my mind.

    Thanks Fred

    I guess it would take too long to process multiple jpegs. I have tried the B+W mode with RAW and Jpeg as you suggested and that is exactly what I want.
