Picture Profiles

Picture Profile 6 is custom set for black and white, however it makes alot more sense to record in colour and apply a simple black & white effect in post.

Recording in black & white reduces your options in post, as a shot you may really like in colour isn't recorded and all of the colour information is gone.

Brett's absolutely right. You can take color out but you can't put it in if it wasn't there to begin with.

In Hollywood they always shoot in color but take the color out in post if that's the effect they want. Don't go down a one-way street that may turn into a dead-end.
