What does a sensor cost?
Sep 25, 2012

Even after a long search with Google, it seems impossible to find any price info for sensors used in digital cameras.

All what can be found is that everybody seem to agree that full-frame sensors are more expensive then APS-C and those are more expensive then the ones used in P&S cameras.

But what does a 16MP APS-C sensor cost in US$? Or a 24MP FF sensor?

The only price I could find is the price of the sensor in the i-Pad nano (US$ 0.20), but still not sure if this was speculation or real.
Anybody here that knows some real prices? Just curious.
