[Question] What is the [High Contrast B&W] in the Premium Shot mode ?

This mode will be for taking a higher contrast B&W picture than those in normal B&W mode. It will produce grainy images similar to those taken with highly sensitive film or high grain film developing.
By changing the ISO sensitivity value, you will be able to control grainy tones.
