Holly-- you are probably thinking about the new V1U from Sony, which has the 1/4" CMOS sensors.... The Z1 and FX1 have 1/3"

So I just went out and picked up an XHA1. I also own a HVX-200 and a PD-170. I'm going to do a low light comparison tonight and will posted it by tomorrow morning. I'm hopping to use this camera to start shooting HD weddings! I'm crossing my fingers.

I did a little research and they both have 1/3" CCD sensors- in fact all 3 Canon HDV cams have this same sensor! (The HV10 uses a different CMOS sensor)

Well, yes and no. You can screen SD or HD in Atlanta and Japan no problem, because Japan is NTSC and so is the US system.

But if you try to shoot something in HD and screen it in Atlanta and also in London, you'll run into a problem. European/Oceanic/Asian HD and US/Japan/etc HD are the same resolution and color space, but they're still incompatible because they run at different frame rates.
