1/2.9-inch ClearVid CMOS SensorTM
The next generation of Sony imaging sensor, the ClearVid CMOS Sensor is quite unique and different from current CMOS technology.
The ClearVid CMOS Sensor uses a unique pixel layout rotated 45 degrees to provide high resolution and high sensitivity. This pixel layout technology is also used in higher end professional camcorders.
The ClearVid CMOS Sensor, coupled with an Enhanced Imaging ProcessorTM (EIP), generates stunning images. Moreover, thanks to the CMOS technology, bright objects do not cause vertical smear.
