Kevin, I do, however, apologize for asking these questions. I read the manual the first day I got the camera but didn't see where it mentioned saturation and thought that they might have been calling it something else. To everyone else thatnks for the help, and next time I will do more research before asking a question.

Actually, they do call it something else - color gain. It's in the section of the manual that deals with custom presets (p68). If I may make a suggestion it might be a good idea to get familiar with the basics of the operation of the camera before tackling something advanced like fiddling with the custom presets.

Good luck and have fun.

I understand what you guys are saying. The truth is that I did look for it for an hour before I posted the question. I found it after someone in this post replied to me and said it was called color gain. That is why I couldn't find it. I work at a television station operating cameras so I know how to use them and how to adjust master pedestal and knee, it is just that I did not realize that the way to change it to black and white was to reduce saturation. Other cameras I have worked with had an option to switch to B&W and it adjusted saturation instantly. I have knowledge of camera work, but not all cameras are the same. Thanks for the help anyway.
