Picture Controls--Do you use them and what are you popular setting?
I frequently use a B&W picture control with lower contrast when I'm shooting RAW but composing a B&W shot. The lower contrast helps me better judge the dynamic range I'll get when processing the RAW file. In the end I do my conversions in Silver Efex Pro, but I think it's been helping me improve my visualization skills to preview in B&W on the camera.
