It is a 1 inch sensor, if you measure from the taint....

With respect to 'video tube' makers of the palaeolithic era, it is high time that some standards body grabbed the reins on this anachronism and came up with a proper naming convention. The act that Sony made use of this 1 inch nonsense suggests they are trying to take advantage of people.

Like many other folks I took the actual millimetre dimensions of this sensor and did hand-springs with a calculator trying to find some justification for 1 inch (25.4mm). The above tube business is just irritating beyond belief.

OK, time to take my tablets.
