Re: Wrong measures! What we really need is ...

Yes, pixel. I don't know where sensel came from and of course I would not want to infringe on anyone's right to make up words, but why not use the word that the image sensor community uses? No one there is confused about what it means in the sensor context. And no one I know is confused when it comes to using the word pixel for sensors, image processing or displays.

Well, arguing about this is probably fruitless. But from my point of view it is like car engineers calling the chassis as chassis, and yet a small group of drivers decide among themselves to make up a word and start calling it a conveyance structure or "conture" for short. So, you can imagine the engineers standing around smacking their foreheads and shaking their heads while trying to communicate effectively with the drivers. why why why?!
