Colorizing Monochrome Images

Mar 01, 2016

Having a monochrome camera gives better monochrome images than converting from a Bayer filtered image. Since the LS911 is a monochrome, and that is great, there are still times when you want color.

There are methods of getting color:

  • Using a color wheel.
  • Adding a Bayer CFA to the sensor. This could be done in the future, though more likely for the LS55.
  • Using software to colorize the image, which could be more useful for video. It trains itself from a color image then it will process, resulting images in color. We're working on this.
  • Just painting the image.

Since I don't have the skills, I hired nieceydoc at https://www.fiverr.com/nieceydoc and got it painted in color. I'm very happy with the effect!

The image that was painted:
