Re: Noise doesn't happen at the SENSOR level, it happens PIXEL by pixel

There was a discussion about that a little while ago. It was also pointed out that another Sony report from a couple years ago said just the opposite, that increasing pixel density does not increase noise. Those guys you quoted are not engineers but were referred to as "designers" who probably have more to do with deciding how the camera is built and looks, not the electronics.

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
