I was thinking it would be nice to record full res, highest quality shots even when shooting in lower res modes. It would be interesting to see what type of still quality could be obtained through a 2MP x 3 sensor system when optimized for a still shot, independent of video necessities. With this high quality Fujinon lens, I would imagine it could be pretty sweet.
That is something curious about stills from video cameras. Bad video cameras can make better stills than good video cameras.
I have a small 1CCD Sony Handycam that makes 1360x1020 stills. My (3 CCD) DVCam can only make 720x576.
