    Default Different B&W

    I haven tried the B&W filters but does anyone know the differences between a shot done by B&W on the cam,B&W on PS and those shot using a filter?
    Is the difference the contrast?

    it only works on black and white captures

    if you put a red filter and shoot in colour
    the effect will be roughly the same as putting the red filter in front of your eyes
    everything will become red

    yes.. the emphasis is different. usually in cam B&W can be (in most cases) replicated in post processing from coloured photos. However, a filtered B&W is quite different as the incoming light is already flitered giving emphasis to different colours to stand out in the B&W processing. This again.. can be (to a certain degree) achieved with PP software.

    examples:
    original


    B&W no filter


    Filter Yellow


    Filter Red


    Filter Blue (the leaves on the trees are gone)
