Video Performance *(11.75)*
The Sony HDR-FX7’s imaging system is composed of three 1/4" CMOS sensors. Each sensor offers a gross pixel count of 1.2 MP (1440 x 810). The effective pixel counts equal 1.037 MP in 16:9, and 778K in 4:3. Much has been made of Sony’s 3-CMOS array, which at the time of announcement was the first to offer such a system. The HDR-FX1 offers three 1/3" CCDs.
