these sensors have almost zero noise Brett - they are way less noisy than anything else out there, including all the super expensive hero cameras.

well depth is totally immaterial if you have a thousand frames to integrate - the effective well depth is then 1000x that of a single sub. 20,000,000 electrons should be enough well depth for the average user.

the quantum efficiency has not yet been specified, but this is a modern chip design from a state of the art digital camera - it has to be pretty good to be competitive in that arena.

you cannot really go past the image in Richard's link (#18) - this is definitely not el-cheapo technology.
