I'm a noob in this forum but I'd like to know would video playback on a 3 ccd camcorder be better than on a 1 ccd camcorder or do the number of ccds only affect video recording?

The number of ccd sensors only affects the camera section, it's nothing to do with the video recorder section of the camera, playback would depend only on the quality of the recording itself (if it's comes from another source) and the record/playback section, rather than the camera section of the camcorder.

Thanx for the reply Brian. I have recordings I made on a Sony 3 ccd camcorder which is now broken and I have since picked up a 2nd hand Samsung which only has 1 ccd on it and I want to play my original recordings made on the Sony camera on the Samsung camera. Would the playback outcome now be worse than it was on the original Sony camcorder?

Assuming that that Samsung's VTR section operating up to spec, it shouldn't be that different to playing back on the Sony. Although, you're really comparing the recording sections doing this, so you may get a slight variation due to how the two manufacturer's designers solve the same problem. However, I suspect you wouldn't notice that without using test equipment.

Thanx Brian. I'll risk my tapes in the Samsung camera.
