    I can give you an example though:

    Greys have hues too. Convert in PP with the channel mixer, and you can change the intensity of each grey according to its previous R/G/B value. Doing it channel mixer way, you can change your b/w picture to convey w/e mood you want.

    Well, since I don't shoot B/W in the camera I can't give the original poster the comparison he seeks. :ugh2:

    I'm sure LowLikeWoahF150 could find and example he could pass off as his own for the comparison though.

    If you are shooting canon, and using raw you can change that in DPP. :naughty:
