3 chips give you better color and better low light detail than single chips overall but chip size is a factor as well however there is no 100% this or that answer because you need to look at the camera as a whole and not just parts.
Many things go into making a good camera but the real question is what do you need from your camera?
1 chip cameras may be all you need.
I shoot corporate training videos and sometimes I’ll use a 3 chip HDV but I also use a single chip SD camera as well and with great success.
