Welcome to the forums

Looks like you need to process your photos once you've taken them, to convert them from colour to black and white. You can do this in camera with a black & white digital filter. Go to page 148 in the English manual (if you don't have the manual, you can download it here)

Also a quick note in case you're not aware, raw photos will always be in color (but can be converted in post). The in-camera filter will work for jpegs.
