New HD CMOS PRO sensor with enhanced low light capabilities
A sensor’s signal-to-noise ratio is indicative of the quality of its electronic signals. On the new HD CMOS PRO sensor used in this camcorder, this ratio has been improved by 3dB. Used in combination with the DIGIC DV4 image processor, which has powerful noise processing capabilities, overall noise is reduced by over 40% compared to previous models (XA25, XA20). This means higher quality image capture, even for footage shot in low light.
