Re: Pixel Density: when Moore is less
Jul 8, 2008

Most image sensor specialists use pixel size or pitch as a key parameter for the sensor. I would urge DP Review to consider converting to this conventional metric rather than its inverted square (I assume), or provide both (even better).

If you want to be unconventional in a useful way, please consider reporting the active diagonal in mm instead of the 1/X inches system that dates from pre-solid-state image sensor days.

On the other hand, the use of pixel density has generated a lot of almost-amusing forum discussion so it certainly has that value, but I don't think that is what you intended.

I know I am not the first to suggest this, but I wanted to be heard. Keep up the good work,
