    I am finding alot of differences in the prices, one higher, one lower,
    and vice-versa, and I know the specs. indicate the HVR-A1 has one CMOS
    chip versus the three on the HVR-V1U, but can anyone give me their
    opinion on which is the better camera of these two?. Am trying to
    decide on which one would be best for shooting films, or which one
    edges out the other in performance, low light, picture, etc., or all
    around what would distinguishes them please. Any opinion would be
    much appreciated..

    Thank you!

    Without question the V1 is superior to the A1 if only because of the three
    chips giving better resolution and colour but it has the added advantage of
    providing 1080/25fps progressive which is known to give the smoother
    so-called "film look" which even the dearer but older Z1 doesn't have.

    Not sure about the A1 for formats but the V1 can also shoot/play DVCAM and
    DV. Again not sure about the A1 but the V1 has HDMI and Component as well as
    Firewire and Composite. As always you get what you pay for.
