unfortunately when the light enters the lens, and then is processed by the electronics, the data is written as all 'blue'.

the information (light) would have to have more descripters before being written (a filter providing more color information to the camera). being able to re-colorize the original material is essentially the same as trying to bring the color back to a black and white photograph. its just not going to work.

well, maybe your could rotoscope every little fishy :)
