3-Chip Cameras—Are They Really Still Better?

Recommended Posts

I know this will sound insane to most people but there's something I like about the look of video from 3-chip cameras—to me it just looks more solid. And watching clips of older broadcast shows, the picture quality seems to hold its own against footage from single-chip cameras.

I'm also interested because it looks like used 3-chip cameras are getting cheaper. 

My question:  For documentary and narrative work can 3-CCD cameras provide better balance between cost and image quality than single-chippers? 

Assuming I can work around the too-deep depth of field problem do 3-chip cameras offer any real advantages anymore? In particular I'm thinking about ability to withstand abuse in the broadcast chain and YouTube compression, picture quality on viewer's cheap monitors and  television sets, and issues like bleed between adjacent colors, artifacting, and overall color deliciousness.

I don’t think it’s so straightforward to compare...

I mean, all of the top-tier digital cinema cameras are single chip, as are many top-tier system cameras. Do you feel they suffer from the problems you describe?

Also worth noting that there are 3-chip cameras around now, but that use 3x CMOS sensors instead of CCDs. Such as Sony PXW-Z280, HDC-P43, and the brand new PXW-Z750 (which is also global shutter).

CMOS sensors are alot cheaper to make .. and easy to make larger size..   for manufactures it probably comes down to that ..

Sorry, I misspoke. I meant 3-chip cameras in general not 3mos or 3ccd. I meant all of them. 
I’m wondering whether 3-chip cameras provide more image quality per dollar spent than single-chip cameras, especially in the price range of the cameras you named.

Gotcha. Well, there’s obviously a reason the use them.... but I’m not sure what the reason is.

Perhaps it’s a way of increasing quality on smaller sensor sizes? Super35 and above it’s not necessary... but 2/3 and lower it is?

And those cameras keep their small sensors for the lens range.
