X100 or/and X-Pro1's best setting for "beautiful" B&W in camera only

Ok, the deal is that I get less and less time to shoot lately due to work constraints. It's been going on for a while, and since I have always been a rather heavy PP guys - I don't feel comfortable sharing my photos without proper sorting/filtering/post-processing, spending all that time in front of the computer doesn't really help with my time problem.

So I kinda decided that from now on and until further notice I was going to try to 'get it right' in camera directly. And lately I have been focusing on black and white photography.

I also recently sold my X100 to partly fund the acquisition of the new X-Pro1. But the settings being really similar on both camera, my guess is that those preferences can be applied to both camera really similarly.

I love deep B&W, high contrast. I'll try to find a few images to illustrate the style I like. But would you share your preferred configuration (profile?) of your X100 or X-Pro1 to shoot B&W out of camera?

For the moment I am experiencing the following settings:

  • B&W - red filter profile

  • Sharpness +1

  • Noise -1

  • Highlights - hard

  • Shadows - hard

What's your take on the best B&W settings straight out of camera JPEG ?
