Greetings Leica Eye,

I believe the answer to this is, no. The in camera black and white conversion is a processing algorithm and converts color to grayscale differently than how film "saw" light. The algorithm reads a full color spectrum first and then processes the image. This is different from how film recorded light and the colored filters adapted for film would affect the entire color image that the sensor records.

I'm sure others will be more knowledgable than me on this.


I very much appreciate your help. Regards, L
