You see the effect on the screen as you apply them.

    I think this is a much better approach than to stick a filter in front of the lens and then be stuck with the result.

    Just my 2 cents.
    Agreed. Not only that, but the yellow and red filters work when shooting B&W film. Using them on a digital camera which records the image in color not B&W will not take advantage of the increase in contrast that yellow and red photos make on BE&W film. Two different recording media, two different results.

    While I love the idea of being a purist, here's a blog post I just put together outlining a way of getting the most out of a B&W conversion in Photoshop Elements. It can obviously be applied to Photoshop as well http://nikonites.com/blogs/backdoorh...-elements.html

    I have tried using a 25A filter on my D700 set to monochrome to see if I got greater saturation and darkening of blues and lightening of reds but the results were very disappointing compared to film. The sensor just does not react to light the same way B&W film does.

    Re: Black & White Shooters

    The sensor doesn't really react to light like color film either, it is simply interpreting the light algorhytmically to what has been suggested is "normal color" for display - but we're a little more forgiving there. If you're working in RAW then the data is there, and B&W specific software like Silver Efex Pro 2 have hooks that interpret the light data more closely to the way some classic b&w films looked.

That being said I know it is not going to be an easy thing to do.
    I kinda see what you mean there, but contrast is still fairly easy to tell on color shots as well. I personally feel that, better have a base that can serve 2 purposes later than to limit it at the base stage.
