The advantage of a B&W camera is that there are no color filters, therefore the sensors catch more light and no demosaicing has to be done. This leads to far better image quality; the more light the sensor catches, the less noise you have and demosaicing algorithms can obviously only approximately render the RGB values of a pixel (and you get worse ...


Out of the box, a specialist camera like this doesn't make any sense. In theory Moire-effect might go away, or you might capture more data on tonality, so the sensitivity could be higher. But none of these are actual problems in actual photography anyway. (They can be fixed in post or by buying a flagship camera with high iso-ratings at low noise.) Many ...
