I personally have never used my Sony TRV900 for taking pictures. If I want a still I do a picture grab while editing my video. The general consensus is the single chip camcorders are a little better in low light but with proper lighting the three chip camcorder will provide superior color exposures. The Sony 3 chip VX-2000 is the best low light camcorder for underwater video at present. A new model has replaced the VX-2000. I have not sure if a housing has been made to accommodate the new model yet. The size of the camcorder and housing is the big issue with the VX-2000. It is huge and heavy. I can atest to the quality of Light & Motion products as I have owned several housing and my wife shoots the Tetra . Yes they are pricy . Below are a few links to underwater video-photo forums that you may want to monitor for the latest and greatest . http://groups.yahoo.com/group/uwvideo/
