Could be, but don't over look Hitachi and Sharp---"Sharp Products for sharp minds." Sharp's 1985/6 ad campaign. I seem to recall. :-))

Lookie here for the Sharp VL-Z800U discussion:

This little 1-chip beaut even comes with real widescreen, and not a 1/6" CCD but a 1/4" incher. The great thing about it is that it's great bang for the buck. Yup. Even Pokey & Co's taking a serious look at it. Wanna be a film-maker on the cheap? Look no further. The Sharp VL-Z800U is here---or at least it is in Japan. :-))
