I love Rich B&W and have one of my Memory Modes set to it.  But I absolutely agree you need a pretty sedintary subject to pull it off since multiple shots are taken.  This on-line version does not do this justice... I had this picture of my friend's dad at Easter dinner printed on B&W silver gelatin and it ended up quite rich looking (as the neame suggests).

Teseg:
I have never ever tried B&W and would like to do so now with my RX1.

Would you please be so kind to let me know the B&W settings you have in your Memory Mode.

Do you use a special program like "Silver Efex" for PP or just Lightroom?

Thank you for your advise!

I'll assume you know how to program Memory Mode (search other threads if not).  Here are the settings that are important to get this type of B&W picture treatment:

  • Fine JPEG
  • Picture Effect: Rich BW

Sorry... Forgot to include... Just LR4 with very little adjustment.
