    To answer you question on 6.0 -22.5mm. I say no the crop or mag factor is there to demo to users how much the sensor is smaller than the FF pro cameras. Also it can be used for MF as well by having fraction of like 0.5x for say the Hasselblad H4D 200MS. Probably just for comparision though. Unless your the deep pocket shooter. :D

    I can not think of a situation where the surface area or the Video tube size would be useful. I use neither in any calculation or Photo related decision.

    The Ratio is useful when thinking about the lenses that you already own. and the mm X mm gives both size and aspect ratio in one go.

    Pixel count is already given in all reviews, and density and more technical aspects are better given in the commentary where they can be related directly to results and quality.

    At least something positive may come from the unfortunate errors made by MG. He may end up becoming some sort of hero !!.

    Thanks for that - so roughly half the size of micro four thirds right?

    Given the sensor dimensions and pixel count, everything else follows easily.

    No it is nearly a 1/4 of the size of a 4/3

    http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/en...Panasonic/(appareil2)/740|0/(brand2)/Fujifilm

    It would be the possibly useful 3x sensor that is a half of a 4/3 (which is like a 1/4 frame 35mm)

    Piece of history, 110 film was (is?) the same size as 4/3 is today. :D

    Disc negs was the 3x version for film.

    If you had been told the mm x mm size all would have been obvious....:D

    Yes indeed - or as I suggested earlier a nice little diagram that demonstrated the different sizes would cut out a lot of brain strain for non-technical folks like me.

    Now that is good suggestion. :cool:

    Actual size of 35mm frame with the sensor for the camera being reviewed in highlight colour with the other sensors in grey.

    I've seen similar stuff on websites it does make it clear where the sensor fits in the real world.

    Perhaps there could be a glossary at the back of the magazine that shows a simple diagram with all the sensor sizes on. Then everyone could use it as a guide and reference. If thatbis not possible because of editorial space, then just put a sensor size guide on this website, and publish the link in the magazine.

    I like the idea of a diagram too. Perhaps each review could contain such a diagram with all the sensor information for the camera under review alongside, ie. 2/3", xmm x xmm, xmm2, diagonal, 'crop' factor, pixel density etc.

    A 6.0 -22.5 is definitely not equivalent to 28-105 when considering depth of field. Quoting both would be useful.

    I'd prefer some sort of indication of area, such as square mm or mmxmm. Also, pixel density figures are wonderful and really highlight the diifference between point-and-shoot sensors and dslrs.

    Yes, it seems to make sense. Then there doesn't have to have a new set of codes or standards devised for anyone. It is just plain to see.
