There are presented the cardinal statements and features of a new, quantometric, statistical version of the color vision theory and colorimetry (CVT&C) which is alternative to the classic wave Young-Helmholtz-Maxwell's version of the CVT&C. The foundations of the proposed new version of the CVT&C are the quantum theory of the light radiation and the quantometric methods of the photon-by-photon (ph.-by-ph.) registration (count) of the light radiation quanta in the energydispersive spectrometry regime. The main attention is concentrated on the physical and statistical aspects of the quantometric version of the CVT&C and its relation to the classic wave version of the CVT&C.
