    The following was posted on a mailing list by a dutch videographer and visitor to IBC-

    The Japanese rep had a large paper with the difference
    between the Z1 (FX1) and this camera:
    The Z1 had 1/3" CCD's
    The VX1 had 1/4 "CMOS sensors
    Z1 widest position about 32 mm (in 35 mm terms), the VX1 37 mm
    Z1 10x zoom, VX1 20x
    Z1 3 lux, VX1 4 lux
    Z1 600 lines resolution, VX1 800 lines.

    Right -- why is this even in question? The V1 and FX7 are 1/4" CMOS, the FX1 and Z1 are 1/3" CCD.

    So let me get this right. The V1 has more resolution than the Z1, but smaller CCDs?

    I think Sony is not sure yet on how to use AVC-HD in the prosumer market.
    I can´t imagine prosumer models using those unrelyable mini-DVDs. I once met someone who used them and he lost some footage due to a manufacturing flaw on the disc. Memory Stick Duo is also more or less out of the question at 2-4 gig max at the moment. Could it even handle the writing-bitrate?

    I think it would be cool if they´d make a model with a built-in 80 gig hard disc.
    Should be enough for a day of shooting. In most cases.

    What I want to know is how much stress AVC-HD puts on the harware when trying to edit it. The more complex the codec, the more powerful the editing system has to be.

    Can someone provide a link so I can read up on CMOS? Or would someone like to explain.

    ITs a different kind of light sensor. According to Howstuff works (dot) com. They are technologically inferior to CCD's. they are suceptible to noise, and have low light sensitivty. I always thought it was the opposite. but hey, if its on the internet it must be true........

    Here is a very good white paper (PDF) by Canon on their full frame CMOS sensors for still photography. Canon is generally regarded as the king in low noise digital SLRs because of their CMOS sensors and DIGIC processor. Also, RED ONE uses a CMOS sensor.

    Huh? Thats strange. I thought CMOS was "less" noisy...
