STM32L496AE DCMI Confusion about camera capability

Dear community,

 

I got the following statement from the reference manual for STM32L496 (RM0351) and it confuses me;

 

This interface is for use with black & white cameras, X24 and X5 cameras, and it is assumed that all preprocessing like resizing is performed in the camera module.

 

So does this mean this interface was not meant for color cameras? I mean it supports RGB and YCbCr, why does it have this statement?

 

Can someone please clarify this for me?

 

ps: I was planning to use an OV5640.

 

Best Regards,

Mete
