One of the more interesting things to do with an EVF is to set the camera for monochrome, but shoot in RAW+JPEG. This changes the display to black and white, but the RAW file is recorded in color.

I have used this technique, and it can be extremely useful. Two interesting side effects:

  1. If you use focus peaking, the peaking color is extremely obvious.
  2. Letting others chimp with you ups your hip cred by orders of magnitude
