    quesiton about raw file shot in B/W mode

    Level 1
      My Canon 40d has an option to shoot in B/W mode, with or without a filter (red, green, etc.) applied. When I view on my camera, they show as monochromatic images. However, when I convert to DNG and open in photoshop, these are color images, which I can of course then convert to B/W using many different methods.

      This makes me assume that these are actually shot as color images and my camera is just showing me a desaturated image.

      Is this true, and how are these otherwise different than shooting in a color mode. And if they are different--not just desaturated--how are they different?

      Best, David.
