I'm going to begin principal photography on a project at the end of this month with the SDX900 and the final product will need to be in in black and white. I was curious as to what would be the best route in achieving this.
I noticed that from the downloadable scene files in the Goodmans Guide that there was no plain B&W setting. Does this mean that it's not possible to extract all the color from the image? I've also heard that it's not possible to do so with the Varicam either.
If I was to shoot in color and then correct to black and white in post, what would be the best way to view the image on set? Is it as simple as switching my monitor to black and white and referencing from there? Or should I be doing something completely different?
Any thoughts, tips, or past experiences would be of great help.
