And if a stray camel came along who would ever notice missing image numbers in a data set when there are 100,000 images from each Rover?

I know that I am nitpicking once more, but that site does not tell the truth when it says that the L4L5L5L5L6 images are true colour, because there is no way of having a true colour image without the whole visible spectrum, any combination of image from the rovers (even the radiometrically corrected ones) can not make a true colour, only approximate true colour, at best.
PS: he even says that it "approximate true colors sufficiently", so they cannot be true colour.

The Mars cameras are essentially doing the same thing, but instead of combining the information from the three filters inside the camera, it keeps the three grayscale images separate and transmits them back to Earth so imaging scientists here can combine them and assign the colors. This is done because more imformation can be found by analyzing the three separate grayscale images. If they would be combined prior to transmitting to Earth, information would be lost.
