HDR-HC1 1 CMOS versus PV-GS400 3 CCD

Hi
I like the true color and crisp image. I used a TRV950 for long time. (I use 50% indoor and 50% outdoor)
I will buy a HDR-HC1 or PV-GS400 but I have not found which is the best in this case.
Could you help me?
Thanks

I'm a pretty big fan of the HC1, just got an A1 today, which is basically the pro version of the HC1.
In DV mode, I think you'd have an argueable point between the two but the added HDV point definitely gives the nod to the HC1, IMO.
Plus, larger chip on the HC1, *might* give a better DV image, but again...HDV still would take the nod. I'll have images from the A1 up in the morning, as I'm still shooting with it now.

Since the Sony HDV camera uses a 2 megapixel CMOS chip even a 25 % efficient Bayer color filter will yield 500,000 pixels of color information for each color. Most 3 CCD cameras will only yield about 400,000 pixels of color information for each color. So the Sony HDV camera even though its a single chip camera will provide better color accuracy.
