Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear.
Seems that whilst I was out on my little jaunt with the FZ38 and experimenting with the “Scene Mode” (this post refers) my finger must have accidentally slipped and I inadvertently accessed the Menu.
And then inadvertently scrolled to the fourth menu page.
And then inadvertently selected the “Color Effect” option.
And then inadvertently selected “B/W”.
And then my finger must have slipped again cos it seems that somehow I inadvertently knocked the mode dial around about eight notches to the “Aperture Priority” mode.
All of which meant that I suddenly discovered I was shooting in black & white again.
Ho hum. So just look on it as messing around.
And to vehemently put down those really nasty rumours that have begun circulating about me, and all other similar slanderous accusations and aspersions… no, b&w isn’t arty! Not as far as I’m concerned. Its just bog-standard pics but without the colour. “Colourless”, one might say. Possibly inferior even. Certainly “less”… as in missing something… i.e. colour!
Is it my fault that for some totally unfathomable reason it seems there’s something about b&w I actually quite like?
Dunno what though. Probably its simplicity. Simple’s good far as I’m concerned. Been getting totally fed up with all that technical stuff like trying to get the colour right and suchlike. Far too much of a headache.
So, seems like this black & white nonsense is a bit easy.
Consequently, you may well find I’m going to be spending a fair bit of time trying to sus out what works and what doesn’t in the format.
All just messing around of course.
And let’s face it… its one of the uses I actually had in mind for this new camera!
