Color cameras and monochrome cameras are very different. In a color camera, the colors are being created right at the sensor. Each pixel has a micro filter of either red, green, or blue on it. As not every pixel is dedicated to red, green, or blue, you lose resolution. The software in the computer / cam uses the surrounding pixels to interpolate an RGB value for every pixel on the sensor. So a color camera has about 1/3rd the resolution of a monochrome camera.
Here is how this works: http://en.wikipedia....ki/Bayer_filter
In a true monochrome camera, like the DMK21, there are no RGB micro filters, so every pixel can pick up red, green, and blue light. This is why you have to use a filter wheel with imaging filters to shoot with a monochrome cam. The advantage here is you get a lot more resolution because every pixel will be blue, red, or green.
