Another thing I enjoy about the Xpro-1 is the quality of the BW OOC jpegs.

I've found that setting noise reduction to -2 and sharpness to +2 and ISO to 6400 yields files that render very sharp grain-like noise. In bygone silver halide days I appreciated tri-x processed in 1:25 Rodinal and printed with a Focomat enlarger - gave very sharply rendered detail and grain.

Someday when I recover from the financial impact of purchasing the Xpro-1 I plan to look into Nik Silver Efex Pro.

Hi Framus

Which in camera b&w filter have you found best results with in addition to the iso, sharpness and noise reduction setting you have listed in your OP? Although I am now a silver efex convert, I can still appreciate the simplicity of OOC b&w

thanks
