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?

No bro.
What i meant was is there any difference in the pic if i shoot it in colour and then B&W in PS,shoot using B&W settings on cam and fitting a B&W filter.

Are there any diff?:)
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)
