    Most of my photos are B&W these days and I'm trying to establish whether the display can be set to B/W. I'm trying to educate my 'eye' to see in tones rather than in colour. I use Aperture priority mainly, but P mode if I'm overloaded and want to delegate exposure to the electronic brain. Any ideas, and what menu settings if appropriate?
    Thanks.

    I think only way is to shoot in Monochrome mode?

    Yes, shoot in Monochrome photo style. If you record raw + JPEG, you have the option of maximum flexibility in monochrome (or colour if you choose) processing.

    Thanks Arg. I thought I'd read about the method somewhere, just couldn't remember!.
    I normally have the camera set to RAW only since I process in LR and SEP2. I fiddled with the settings last night but could not make it happen, but I have the knowledge now.

    Many thanks once again.
