And would it affect FPS? ie would greyscale run 3 times faster than RGB and would 4 bit record twice as fast due to only write half as many bits?

please explain: record.

and why would you want such a weird format ?

I'm trying to get a camera to produce as much FPS as possible

shouldn't you research, how hardware works, before making assumptions ?

to answer your question, NO it is neither possible, nor feasible.

Even if it was a monochrome camera? I've been looking for this answer for 3 days

The answer is two lines above. Just tell me if you need explanation about the meaning of "NO".
