Any help?  I love black and white photography and my Nikon D300 allows me to take monochrome with some filter effects as an option.  When I transfer the black and whites to Aperture, the program turns them to color.  I'm not much of a computer guy, but I thought I could figure this out but no luck.  I know I can turn color into black and white but would prefer to skip this extra step.  Anybody with advice?  Thanks

Shooting RAW? The camera is just showing you a B&W image on the display, but it's recording color. You can get B&W out if you shoot jpegs, but I wouldn't want loose the flexibility of RAW just for that. You could shoot RAW + jpeg and have both. Anyway, it's only one click to convert in Aperture, assuming you're going to be doing other adjustments.

Jus like Rob say. If you shoot raw the camera is capturing the color of the image. The preview incrusted on the RAW files is the only one with the effect. The solution is just like Rob said, shoot RAW + Hi quality jpg. That way you have a reference if you want to duplicate the look in aperture. Aperture 3 can import both the jpg and the RAW file. If you find this duplicating tedious you can review the photos within aperture and send the best ones as RAW to Nikon software. I love aperture B&W toolset. There are specialized programs that are more flexible, but aperture is very good.

Best regards,
