Video Performance* (9.5)*
The Sony HDR-UX20 is equipped with a single 1/5-inch ClearVID CMOS sensor. This is a major downgrade in size from last year’s HDR-UX7, which featured a 1/2.9-inch CMOS. Now, Sony didn’t just shrink it. The company goes to great pains to point out that the UX12 is equipped with the latest in Sony engineering, the Exmor sensor and Bionz processor, both of which are supposed to reduce noise.
