Actual sensor size
The sensor has a surface area of 332.3 mm². There are approx. 24,200,000 photosites (pixels) on this area. Pixel pitch, which is a measure of the distance between pixels, is 3.7 µm. Pixel pitch tells you the distance from the center of one pixel (photosite) to the center of the next.
Pixel or photosite area is 13.69 µm². The larger the photosite, the more light it can capture and the more information can be recorded.
Pixel density tells you how many million pixels fit or would fit in one square cm of the sensor. Canon 760D has a pixel density of 7.3 MP/cm².
These numbers are important in terms of assessing the overall quality of a digital camera. Generally, the bigger (and newer) the sensor, pixel pitch and photosite area, and the smaller the pixel density, the better the camera. If you want to see how 760D compares to other cameras, click here.
