I'm overall very happy with my JVC cam even though its a 1-chip model. For one thing, it has a fairly large lens and the 1.33 mega-pixel CCD is 1/3.6" so its closer to 1/2" than 1/3 really. The 1-chip CCD's that have come out the past few years have been able to attain much better color than ones in the past. Now I'm seeing Panasonic pushing 3-chip models for under a thousand dollars that have lenses so small that they can't possibly supply enough light to the CCD's to get any decent low light performance. Some people have argued that the newer HDV cams should be using larger lenses in order for their CCD's to actually perfrom up to the specs they're capable of too.

I wonder if 1-chip units are getting a raw deal these days? I've seen stills from the new Canon Optura Xi that look great too. I'm wondering just how much benefit there really is to 3-chips nowadays?

Here's a couple of stills from my JVC.
