grainy skin appearance

After going through and editing my mini dv tapes I noticed that on many of the tapes the skin on people had a grainy haze while the other parts of the picture looked fine. This is on tapes that were filmed with a one chip and a three chip camcorder. I thought maybe the camcorder and tried it on the other camcorder and the same result happened. It's possible both need cleaning but I thought if a digital camcorder was dirty that the whole picture would be noticably distorted.

Has anyone had this problem?

Thank you,

Not sure exactly what you mean, Tony. Do you have someplace where you can post some stills exemplifying this graininess?
