    How about a digital compact camera with a mode for black and white? Just point at the subject and view it in b/w on the LCD-screen. If you're satisfied, go ahead and use the REAL camera.

    That's a very good idea, actually (just tried it myself - and it works!).
    And, paradoxically, it's probably even cheaper than the Zone VI viewing filter

    Viewing through the combined Wratten 90 and selected filter you do get a reasonable approximation of the filter's effects on the tonal reproduction in black and white. It is often helpful to view the ground-glass through the filter (rather than viewing the scene directly) because of the isolation (and inversion) which allows a very good assessment of the tonal distribution. The Wratten 90 (or Zone VI Viewing Filter) is quite effective at evaluating the merge of tones.
