X Vario B&W high contrast setting
More than often I prefer b&w high contrast jpg from the XV, rather than the raw (color) version. I also like to see and shoot in b&w for estimation of light. Since there is no AE-lock, I use manual focus and point the camera to the preferred light source, then halvpress and recompose.
