Are there any consumer grade (i.e. not ridiculously expensive scientific equipment) digital cameras that use "grayscale" sensors instead of the prolific RGGB bayer filter? I figure that you'd get an extra stop or so of light if you weren't cutting out everything except the red/green/blue at each pixel. I've seen that some companies stock sensors by themselves but I'm not about to build my own camera from parts - though I wouldn't be averse to removing the bayer filter from a cheap enough camera.
