Hi,

I'm going to shoot a short film next week on the Alexa and the director wants the movie to be in black and white. So I was wondering if anyone has got any good tips or tricks for shooting on the Alexa in general and if there are anything in particular to keep in mind when shooting for B&W.

I would appreciate all you input and feedback.

//Nick

The new firmware for Alexa (v4) now supports Looks, so you could design a look with full desaturation and a custom contrast curve and load it in the camera, and apply it to your monitor out and/or evf to preview in black and white!
