I was replying to someone that said in camera B&W conversion wasn't good. Well if you are shooting RAW it doesn't matter.

I am the one that said that. I was actually talking about how the features in the camera or in the features in ACR were not very good at converting a color picture into a B&W. RAW has nothing to do with the output of a conversion from the camera or via ACR.

I am saying the process of a well though out conversion will always blow away the automatic conversions.

Starting from RAW data will always give you a wonderful starting place....and a place to come back to if you flub it up...of course.

But not sure how having RAW data makes it not matter. The only thing that truly matters (besides a good quality exposure) is your process of creating a B&W from the color capture.
