If you shoot in JPEG and wanted to create images in black-and-white, the advice is still to shoot in color and do the conversion to black-and-white in post-processing. By doing so you are preserving all the color information of the image, and when you do the conversion on a non-destructive image editor, you can always go back to the original image any time you want to or you can re-edit the images.

Black-and-white images taken off the camera setting or converted in-camera tends to be rather flat and may look lifeless. This is where the advantage of editing images in post-processing is. I use Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) as my image management and editing software which I find is adequate enough for all my editing and black-and-white post-processing needs.

If you have yet to go into post-processing, learn more about your camera's setting for black-and-white conversion, and you still might end up with a few good black and white images, but that's all that you can do with it. Soon enough you will have the urge to do the conversion yourself on installed image editors and this is where you will have all the look and feel of your final images.
