Information in camera colour images
There is a limit to the information a colour camera can deliver about the world and the objects within it. This limit is due to several factors: the spectral response of the camera sensor or film, the properties of natural reflecting surfaces and illuminants, and the uneven distributions of colours in scenes. As a result, different surfaces represented in a colour image may prove indistinguishable or be misidentified under changes in scene illumination. Fortunately, it is possible to improve camera performance by optimizing its spectral response, but once a colour image is recorded, no manipulation can increase the information that can be extracted from it.
