The Sony HDR-SR12 features the company’s latest chip, a 1/3.15-inch ClearVID CMOS sensor. There’s been a lot of chatter about the new technologies inside the SR12, namely the Exmor technology on the chip and the Bionz technology in the processing. Exmor is found on both the Alpha line of DSLR still cameras and the Sony PMW-EX1 XDCAM EX camcorder. In essence, it performs A/D conversion and noise reduction on each column of pixels on the sensor.
