    My sister came home from work one day at the local walmart photo lab and said that a customer was asking about a possible cannon digital camera that had a setting somewhere that would let u take the picture in B&W but then add only one color back to the picture. I know that this can be done with Photoshop, but I have heard of it being done on the camera itself. Does anyone know about or have heard of it?

    I think they are confused. The 20D, and some other models, allow you to shoot in black and white, and simulate the use of color filters like red, yellow, and green.

    The Samsung Digimax 600s does that. In the effect menu.

    Normal, B&W, Sepia, Negative, Red, Green, Blue and Negative

    I guess other models do too.

    I'm with Digitalmatt - I suspect the colour options are filter effects. If the camera only lets you replace those 3 primary colours and even ignoring the millions of shades of each of them is it worth having the feature on the camera?
    I think they're filter colour choices.

    Could well be filters, I must admit I can't figure out a use for them.
