 From the Polaroid page for the SS120: <Single Pass RGB, 30K Pixel CCD 
(10,000 X 3 = 30,000)>

Since the banding problem has not turned up with the Polaroid 
implementation I don't think that the three row CCD idea is something 
that does not work in practice. It may or may not depending on how it 
is implemented.
