Re: Incredible low-light video footage from Canon

Canon says:

"In addition, the sensor's pixels and readout circuitry employ new technologies that reduce noise, which tends to increase as pixel size increases"

Which is interesting because people generally think that noise is greater with smaller sensor elements.

Are Canon marketing just being clever here by using noise when we will read what they mean in terms of signal to noise ratio?

SNR must be very high on this sensor, nonetheless the noise will also be slightly higher due to increased sensor element area or border - is that correct?
