Hi All

Can you take bw pictures with the 350D? In the manual there is a setting but on the camera itself there is no setting, just wanted to know if theres something wrong with the camera or just the manual is for other camera's aswell?

regards
Java :D

Just shoot RAW. If you use Adobe Lightroom you can then convert to B/W or sepia or... Just one of the advantages of using RAW.

Or do this:
Image
A vervet monkey which is B/W, but not the background.

Image
Our guardfrog in colour, but not the background. I really wanted to do that with an elephant, but can't seem to find a nice photo for that. It would show the ellie to have more colour than just gray.

I actually brought up this theme last year without much interest, but am very glad it's back on the menu now.

No doubt BW photos can have a very powerfull effect with animals as in human beings alike. Somehow it just make them stand out more.

Here's a few of my own favourites:
