I have taken the lens out of my faulty lens error SX260 and had a look at the sensor, although I did not measure it. The thing that struck me immediately was how big it was, we are used to hearing how small the 1/2.3 sensor is, but it didn't look small at all. At the time I was more interested in getting the 260 going again, but unfortunately I was sent a second hand faulty lens from ebay, and at one time tried to combine the working parts from two different lens assemblies to make one good one, but the interwoven fine ribbon cables makes that almost impossible.

Thanks for your comments, Brian.

The description of your camera innards makes me wonder whether or not you could control the focal length and focus of a PowerShot lens once you remove it from the camera.
