Where does this 1/2" sensor fall within the scheme of various sensor sizes....
Jan 8, 2013

For a long time now we've seen the constant release of the typically known sensor sizes - that is your 1/2.3", 1/1.7" (or 1/1.6"), 2/3", 1", 4/3 size, APS, size, and full frame. And we've seen diagrams (squares) where you could basically get a visual outline as to how each compare with one another (in size of course).

So where does this 1/2" sensor fall into play? Is it larger than the 1/1.7" models that you find in most of the enthusiast models now-a-days, or is it smaller? Also, can you provide a link to a diagram showing approximate sizes (visually).

A year or more ago, I received a PM from Kim Letkeman (hope I spelled that correctly) regarding this, but I've since misplaced this data and I want to have a frame of reference with this sensor size.

Thanks....
