Recent advances in CCD fabrication techniques have brought on the omnipresence of low cost monochrome CCD cameras. Full color cameras are traditionally made in one of the following two ways: subpixelated color or multiple camera schemes. Each system offers a unique set of tradeoffs. Noteworthy among these is the prohibitive expense of high resolution full color image capture systems. We present a novel technqiue for transforming a single (monochrome) high resolution CCD camera into a full color camera via the use of a fast switching ferroelectric four state color filter. Using all off-the-shelf componentry and color balancing software, we present full color images of stationary scenes constructed from their respective RGB space images.
