I don't have LBA (I usually have my lenses from friends since they don't use their pentax lenses anymore), but the worst lenses I've ever use are Takumar F-Zoom.

In the shooting mode, you can push "right" navigation button. than you can choose a lot of filters and also custom settings. you can also choose color filter for your taste / for your scene and adjust sharpness and contrast.

Tip for you: you can create a user preset and than you can map BW filter to this preset (Since they would be sort of snapshots for me, I even decrease to 10MP/6MP). I'm still shooting film (nowadays rarely BW) and i found it quite useful. I make bit more contrast to have little bit HP5 effect. So in the end when you change the preset you'll just have your BW filtered photos, voila! It's better to try every option and you can compare them for your favorite effects.

It seem like everybody wanted to give advices instead of explaining how you can do it; maybe not everybody asking for "perfect" black+white shot or not everybody wants to spend valuable time on PC...

I'm using V500 for 35mm & 120 films; It's very nice and bang for the buck, since my lab wanted to charge me 20 euro per roll (what?) it's great for me.

But to tell truth, I would like to change the film holder, I have problems with sharpness of the films. ANR Glasses seem cool but too expensive for ordering from here.

If you have a smartphone you can download lots of GPS Logger programs and you can merge these .gpx files with your Raw/jpeg files easily with many photography software. Since I'm using (slow) Lightroom 4, it's quite easy. Here is a video for this for Lightroom 4: How to Use GPX Logs to Geotag Your Photos with Lightroom 4 | Creative Suite Podcast: Photographers | Adobe TV
