Think 3x the image data. 1 Charged Coupled Device only brings in the image data of 1 CCD chip. 3 CCD’s bring in 3 times the image data (3x more RGB video data) which gives you a much more detailed image. And you’re correct. Clients take you far more seriously when you show up with a 3CCD rig. If you want to work professionally, you eventually have to get some pro gear. Just don’t put yourself into the poorhouse doing it.
