Well – 3 chip cameras have depth, and just a different look. Edge detail is different, the colour rendition is different and the signal to noise is different. single chip cameras look a little flatter and on a decent monitor, less good. Standard definition from a camera with decent optics is noticeable. Many so called HD cameras have really cheap lenses and optically inferior imaging chips – yet they have 1920 x 1080 output. Some of the ⅔” real lenses cost more than many cameras, because the glass is excellent. The same thing happens with still cameras. You can put a £50 lens on a DSLR or a £2000 lens – one looks better, doesn’t it?
