I am seriously considering buying the D3x, but have two important questions that I need answers to that will help with my decision. I am hoping some of you knowledgeable "Nikon"ers will know the answers!
1. Can the D3X shoot RAW B&W? I know there is an available Monochrome Picture Mode but don't fully understand it. Is the Monochrome mode applicable to shooting JPEGS only, or can the camera actually shoot in RAW B&W? Or, is the Monochrome mode an "effect" that you can apply to the RAW image after shooting it in color? If so, does the file become non-RAW at this point, or does the information get applied to the RAW file itself?
2. Is there a B&W Live-View mode available?
I await your replies. Thanks in advance!
