D200 Question?????

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR' started by Doug Barber, Jan 5, 2006.

  1. Greetings all:
    I'm sure if I was dreaming when I read this. But my memory tells me you can do a (funcky) thing with a D200 but I cannot seem to confirm if it REALLY is possible....

    Is is possible to take an image that will generate both a color image and a B&W copy from a single shot?

    hope some of you smart folks can shed a little light on this for me....

    Well, I assume you are talking the camera doing all the work, like a NEF+Jpeg. I'm not aware it can do that, the way the menu is set up it's either / or. Now in Photoshop........
  3. Yes I'm talking about the camera doing all the work....
    My memory tells me that someplace I read you could take a combo image with NEF+JPG and have the JPG come out in B&W and the NEF in color. This would be a good thing because you would have the ability to view the B&W jpg on the LCD as you stood there.

  4. just checked it:

    If you choose Raw + Jpeg and select B&W,

    you get a B&W jpeg (and a B&W picture in Image Review)

    and still can choose if the RAW will be in Colour or B&W in conversion.
  5. Thanks so much.....
    I will give it a goooooo.


    Just tried the NEF - jpg trick and yes the image shows in the LCD as B&W. But the RAW image is also B&W.
    Do you know if there is a way to get the jpg in B&W and the RAW in color?
  6. You can choose in Nikon Capture:
    Advanced RAW => Color mode between all the color modes or B&W,
    when initialy opening it, it is set to unchanged by default (and that means B&W in this case :wink: )

    Just set it to one of the colormodes!

    I think you don't even need RAW + JPG just shoot RAW and set it to B&W this way the preview will be B&W, you can allways convert it to Color, later in Nikon Capture!
  7. Very cool....
    just tried it and it works like a charm....
    Thanks SO MUCH for your help.
