You mean there’s a digital camera that CANNOT make color photographs?
Not to worry.
You probably won’t buy it.
Besides… it’s nearly US$8000.
Unless you’re an artsy fartsy fancy schmancy pho-tograffer type… and in which case, you probably don’t have a lot of munny anyway. Fo-to-graffers don’t make a whole lot of munny.
You know… they’re the starving atisté kind.
But, on the upsid3… the REAL matter is the development of sensors, and how they perceive and are sensitive to light.
For all the bazillion-dollar cameras that can see in the dark, and blah, blah, blah… there has NEVER EVER been a camera that has EVER come close to the human eye.

It’s none other than Shel Silverstein, the late, renown children’s author and playwright. Apparently, Silverstein was quite an accomplished songwriter as well.
While I’m no “fan” of Wikipedia, there is an interesting, if not enlightening article on him there. Sorry… no link. You can look it up. That’s my form of protest.
BUT! As a service to you, kind reader, I will provide a link to ShelSilverstein.com – his his official site.
