Can't take b&w exposures on K10D

I cannot take b&w exposures with my K10D; I follow the instructions given in the manual, but after pressing the Fn button in playback mode, I am unable to get the screen with the filters. Don't understand what I must be doing wrong; will appreciate any help from anyone on this.....

Playback mode, press the Fn button, then the 4 way controller to the left, it opens up a vertical list of filters, press the 4 way button down or up, to the filter you want, and voila. Unless there is something wrong with your camera or I'm not remembering correctly.

if you're shooting in raw, you'll need to first convert the raw to jpg... then you'll be able to get to the filters... you can only use the filters on JPG images. it might be advantageous for you to just use some software on your computer such as Picasa (free from or some other image editor to get the black and white... you can do much more in these applications that you can do on the camera. Hope that helps!

Agree with Mitch - you'll get much better results converting to B&W in post-processing. Many more options, and you can play with the curves to get the look you want. You can't actually shoot in B&W on the K10D anyway - it's just an in-camera conversion. Better to do it later.
