One of the early landers had a color chart on it. The photos were 1s and 0s but computers were able to read the chart to get the correct colors. My memory is the first shots are always b&w

Video footage from Perseverance Rover’s Descent and Touchdown on Mars

Can’t wait to see video from the helicopter.
