Try One of These Instead:

This model utilizes a 3-CMOS chip array. Each is a 1/4” Sony ClearVID CMOS, with 1.2 million gross pixels (1.03 million effective pixels in HDV)

USED: This item has been previously used as a showroom model and as a rental unit. Hours readable in the last image. Firewire port inoperable. Remote missing. Battery replaced by Lenmar LIS550H. All other accessories included.

Sony engineers brought 24p into the equation with an effective solution, too, where the vertical resolution is a full 1080p raster, while the sensors pick up 960 horizontal pixels, and this data is then interpolated to the full 1920 resolution in a 4:2:2 color space. The video is then compressed into the normal HDV format at 1440x1080/60i with a 3:2 pulldown, giving the footage the ability to be played back in any Sony HDV gear. Neat trick.
