We shot Dead by Sunrise in B&W on my XL2. Did it partly to keep us from chickening out in post. But, also, to actually see what we were getting on the monitor. It's a little different lighting in B&W compared to color.

I recommend you to shoot on color, but calibrate the monitor to B&W. This way you can feel comfortable lighting, and use the 3 8-bit channels info in CC.
