In a previous post I wrote the following:
“This has been my basic approach for a while now to B&W – try in the Fuji, and if I don’t like it or want a different took altogether…take the B&W file to Silver Efex Pro.”
Interestingly, this workflow also reflects intent, as I hardly ever convert a colour image to B&W now. I tend to make the decision and start out in B&W when I want B&W.
I really appreciate the X100s’ ability to do this, not only to shoot B&W jPEGs, but also to view the scene in B&W though a really good sized viewfinder.
In all honesty, I can’t remember if I took the above in B&W mode or not, it’s just the only one I have available at the moment, on my iPad Mini, that is B&W and from the X100s.;
