    Default Where to find sensor specs?



    I am trying to find the pixel size for the APS-C sensor in the Canon 1200D. Are there any websites where such specs for DSLR and CCD cameras can be looked up?
    thanks

    Thanks!
    I did look up this website, but the pixel size is not there. The pixel pitch is mentioned, but I am not sure if it is equal to the pixel size.

    The area of one pixel can be calculated by simply squaring the pixel pitch:
    Pixel area = pixel pitch▓

    You could also divide sensor surface area with effective megapixels:
    Pixel area = sensor surface area in mm▓
    effective megapixels
    Canon 1200D pixel area:
    Pixel pitch = 4.29 Ám

    Pixel area = 4.29▓ = 18.4 Ám▓
