Hello and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com

.

I do believe you can change the capture settings from COLOR to B&W.

.

However, it has ALWAYS been my experience (and that of professionals), that if a picture is desired to be in Black and White, then use a computer editing software to change the color photo to B&W.

Why?

Because, if you capture the image in Black and WHite...then it will always and forever BE B&W. If ever in the future you decide you want to see or know what that picture looks like in color....you cant.

So if you START with color and then EDIT it down to B&W, you will always have the color picture.

.

But if you just MUST capture in B&W, i can find the instructions for you.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
