Actually, I am sure I have heard Canon have been experimenting with a electronically switchable filter. I think the idea is the sensor is rapidly switched from red/green/blue and each pixel read 3 times so that a true RGB image is built. I am not sure if the have been successful but I believe they hold a patent with this method. Possibly you could turn the filter off completely for true monochrome.

No movie, just 4 quick shot single shot. No sound either.

4 frames per second and then when the cache is full its around 1 frame per second after that i have found. It all depends on how quickly the camera can write to the compact flash card for how many frames it can do.
