Re: Shooting RAW in Monochrome.

There is no 'Monochrome raw' indeed, it is technically just a digital read out of the sensor. However most camera's embed a jpeg for previewing.

What you see in your RAW converter depends on the what the manufacturer choose to display; either the raw info, its own interpreted version or the embedded jpeg preview.

Even when I only shoot and save raw images, CaptureOne Pro shows the monochrome jpeg preview whenever I have set it as the profile (monochrome) in my Fujifilm camera.

In Affinity Photo (develop persona) however, the same raw file shows in color (raw info). DarkTable chooses to show the monochrome jpeg preview.
