Kinda new at this but can you do any black & white photography with digital slr cameras?
Capture in color and use your image editing program to do the conversion to black and white. Photoshop has many ways to do the black and white conversion.
I do a lot of B&W with my two Fujis (S3pro & S5100), and also do a good bit of converting color to B&W. I think I may
loose something in the conversion when compared to just shooting true B&W's. Perhaps I'm wrong, but it seems that way.
I agree with Larry on this and in my experience I find that converting in your imaging program will produce better results.
