Re: Are bigger pixels less noisy?

I think, what I was trying to say was that, for given technology and sensor size, and ignoring utilisation differences, per-pixel photon noise-to-signal ratio increases (with square-root) as you increase pixel count, whereas per-pixel read noise remains constant.

Have I got the correct picture here?
