Yes, it's from Fujifilm's website, but I'm sure that you know that it's wrong. Who do you think created that? Fuji's engineers or someone in Fuji's marketing department, trying to keep from confusing potential customers that are familiar with megapixel sensors but wouldn't know what to make of megaphotosite sensors?

The image was an example of how the word "pixel" is used for sensor photosites, I choose a Fujifilm one, because it fits the topic. You could try googling how much of the web writes "pixels" when they mean a sensor's photosites. Here is a white-paper by Aptina where "pixels" is used, too.


Like I wrote myself, it does cause confusion and is a matter of definition, but it's not like everyone else here has to follow your personal definition.
