D-Lux 5: shooting B&W but opening in color?

Recommended Posts

Greetings --


I've been setting my film mode to Standard Black & White. Playback shows B&W and when I preview uploaded images in iPhoto, they appear in B&W. (See bw.jpg, attached.)


But when I actually open the image files in either iPhoto or Photoshop, they appear in color. (See color.jpg, attached.)


Have I fumbled a setting?


I'd be grateful for any tips or advice. It's not the biggest problem in the world, obviously, as I can convert images to B&W in Photoshop, but it would be lovely if I could skip that step.


Thanks so much, in advance. Best,

The option to shoot B&W applies to the JPEG images only. The RAW format images will be in color, anyway, because the RAW format just records what the sensor sees. Hence, there will be both colored and B&W images if you set the camera to store both JPEG and RAW format images.
