No, it's grayscale only. You can build a version of it with a Bayer filter on the sensor but the amount of dsp processing you have to apply to get a color image is too high. So, it doesn't make sense for the H7 to do that as it will destroy the frame rate. Omnivision cameras have an ISP onboard which outputs RGB565 data after heavy dsp processing.
