    I see what you mean about shooting B&W JPEG plus raw for street and you got some good shots. The lady with the Pentax, it looks like a 67 - she must be serious to lug that around. :smile:

    You may already know this, but if you don't want/need the B&W JPG file you can still get the same effect while shooting in RAW only - the image displayed in live view reflects your current JPG settings.

    I have one of my MySets saved as B&W with increased contrast to help practice "seeing" in B&W, then I process the RAW later.

    Hi Fin, Thanks for your response. I have used the set-up you suggested below but I now like the ability to quickly compare colour and B&W on my MAC, so I find shooting both jpeg + Raw works well for me. I just delete the files I do not require after reviewing.

    I like the concept of jpeg+raw shot in monochrome, interesting idea. :cool:
