Re: Would you buy a B&W DSLR?

A B+W module for Ricoh's frankenstein camera might be worthwhile. Small cameras have a problem with noise and sharpness; ditching color would be an interesting solution.

If someone were to market a B+W sensor camera, they should include an integral color wheel, so that if one so desired you could capture a sequence of red/blue/green filtered images that could be composited to create a true color photo. Old digitizers (and scanning backs, I believe) worked in this manner. Obviously only suitable for static compositions, but it would enable Foveon-type clarity.
