A previously proposed theory of visual processing, based on redundancy reduction, is used to derive the retinal transfer function including color. The predicted kernels show the nontrivial mixing of space-time with color coding observed in experiments. The differences in color-coding between species are found to be due to differences among the chromatic autocorrelators for natural scenes in different environments.
