it's just such a shame the v1 doesn't have a 1/3rd inch chips. I would be first in line if it did!

Marcus Marchesseault,
That is definitely a good way in solving the V1u’s low light capabilities against the Z1u’s. 30 full frames with a shutter speed of 30 should give you a very decent picture quality.

Phil Bloom,
By using 1/3rd of an inch imagers and a 20X lens the camcorder would have been at least the size of the XH-G1/Z1u or bigger. To a lot of people the smaller size is worth it since using the Z1u for many hours at a time like I have can be a pain sometimes.

Now here’s the low light comparison that I want to see:
"XH-G1 vs. Z1u vs. V1u"

Agree on the light weight factor. Using a medium/small camera means mobility. If your going on a tripod or in the studio, then size matters and you could rent or purchase a larger camera.

There is a difference when you shoot a two hour event on the field between an XL1s and an HC1. Combine that with a heavy coat and moving up and down a field or flight of stairs and you'll quickly forgive 1/4 chips.

Totally agree it's best to get the smallest/lightest cam that you can that meets your required specs.
Probability of taking your cam with you on a "shall i / shan't i" type of day, is inversely proportional to size and weight.
