not a 1 inch sensor...

The Diameter of sensors like this is appr. 15,9mm. 1 inch is 25,4mm. See the difference? That's about 62% of 1 inch and that's nearer to 1/2 inch!

In case anybody is reading this, no sensor's rectangular dimensions are anything like the quoted size. The 1", 1/2.3" etc refer to the imaging circle which is a theoretical concept, and is always bigger than the actual sensor.
