  1. When you discuss the color gamut of the van Gogh painting, you say that 3 color primaries are not enough for rendering green-blue. This is true for displays, which is why there exist multi-primary displays and other wide color gamut displays. It is not true for cameras, any decent camera sensor with 3 channels can capture the entire gamut of human vision. The limitation is in the matrix that converts to BT.709 RGB signals, when negative output values are clipped to zero. A 3-primary camera with LMS or XYZ filters would do the job, but perhaps not with the best S/N ratio. Multi-primary cameras are only needed to capture *more* than what the human eye can see, that’s for spectral imaging.
