Not an EX1 user, just a personal preference here.

I tend to up sharpness a bit when filming something for B&W.

I just think it looks better without colors.

To me B&W is better to do in post, it is pretty easy to desaturate and adjust contrast and blacks etc. If you wanted to do this in camera just create a color profile with Sat at -99 and then adjust your Blacks to suits your needs.

Thanks for the advise, But as a former user of a XHA1, I find that when I have a B&W setting it saves me a lot of time in post . I use to switch setting while still recording and it creates the look that I want without going to post
