    frame rate will be the same.. the output resolution is the same. The difference here is that instead of reading 4 pixels ( RGBG ) to interpolate ( guess ) 4 final color pixels, you are reading 4 unique, accurate imaging pixels to create 4 accurate final pixels. that is why all Bayer Pattern CMOS sensors loose effective resolution, for example our 5K cameras measure an accurate 4K resolution after Debayer, and most 1080p cameras net only an accurate 1.2-1.6k image.

    Its an important distinction.. one of the reasons we have always touted resolution is so important, and also the reason you are now starting to see cameras that do oversampling like the F65.

    I think you only have to color green screens, Terry. '-)

    But seriously, I've colored old Black and White photo scans so I suppose you could do individual frames... otherwise, moving footage would need something like Turner Classic Movies did to old B&W films years ago.

    Got it, makes sense that that's where you gain. I bet it looks beautiful, thanks.

    Crazy. I had no idea that B&W cameras were in high demand.

    This makes me really really really want to shoot something on it.

    Hey Jarred, send me a camera for some tests?

    Forget about doing it in post. Just buy three of them, a beam splitter, couple of filters and take over the town.

    Seriously, this fills in a gap - nice going guys!

    This will be an extremely niche product. A welcome addition to those who require it for the projects.
