1 chip or 3 ?

You guys really are serious about DV stuff and I thought I'd ask this question.

What do you shoot with, 1 CCD or 3 CCD.

Now, if you shoot with 1 CCD camera has anyone ever watched your footage and thought it was a 3 CCD camera.
( Did you do color correction ? )

Also the same goes for a 3CCD, has anyone ever said that you footage looks like a 1 CCD.
( Did you use color correction ? )

A single-CCD camcorder built with RGB color filtration technology can approximate the look of a 3-chip camera, under certain conditions such as careful lighting and exposure. For more info about primary (RGB) color filters, see this page for starters.
