Relative Sensor sizes.

Unfortunately, this chart only goes down to 1/2" -- much bigger than most camcorder sensors which are 1/2.5" down to 1/6".

The GH1 sensor is the dark blue box in the center, 4/3" in size. Notice how its almost the size of the red box? That red box is the sensor for the $18,000 Red One camera.

The tiny sensor in the middle, is the 1/2" Sony EX1 which I think retails for $5,000

THIS is why the GH1 ins a BIG DEAL.
