Changing modes, B/W & color, K-7?

Somehow I set the K-7 to B/W mode—tried white balance to get it to color mode—failed!

How do I get it to display color??

Thanks!

Why don't you PP the shot in computer?

The B/W mode is simply a filter applied by the camera on the colour photograph. It is some in-camera PP.

A better approach would be to shoot RAW and to PP the shots afterwards in the computer.

That's right, I must have set it to B/W by accident.

Thought there must be a menu entry somewhere to get the camera itself to display the image in color. Tried white balance, but there seems to be no way there.

Checked the manual, couldn't find a way.

What am I missing? It displayed images in color until this morning…

Do I have to set the camera to default settings, then enter all my custom settings over again?

Thanks in advance!

OK, the button to the right of WB (white balance?) is OK. Is that what you mean? I tried that, but no change…

I must not understand which button you mean.

I meant the button to the right side of the keypad. WB is on the left, OK is in the middle and the color is on the right.
