I am looking for a new camcorder small enough to put in a belt pouch but it does not have to be tiny.I had a JVC GR-DVP9,written off just by getting damp with rainwater in a rucksack.I though you would have to immerse a camcorder in salt water to achieve this ! Be very careful ! I cannot get a real feel from mag.reviews or forums on the following: 1.HOW MUCH worse is the low light performance of 3CCD(eg.Panasonic NV-GS75 etc) or 3CMOS (Sony DCR-PC1000) compared to single CCD(eg SONY DCR-HC90 etc.)I want to use in darkish buildings,cathedrals etc and at parties but do not really mind if it won't film in a room lit by one candle ! 2.HOW MUCH better is the good light performance of 3CCD or 3CMOS compared to single CCD. "What Digital Camcorder" suggests the 3CCD Panny's are awesome(and they do seem great value)and mentions poor low light performance as an aside as if it was a minor point.I don't think it is. In other words,is their good light performance really a step change up on single CCD and low light perfectly adequate,or,are they just slightly better in good light with low light so poor I would regret buying one ? Anyone got experience ? I am not interested in stills or surround sound and price is not an issue.Any suggestions ?Thanks Andrew.
