size of image sensor in the dx1
hi again, okay here is another matter i need some help with. what is the difference in the physical size of the D1 X's CCD and the normal 35mm negs?? I i know that the CCD is smaller and this effectively makes, say a 24mm lens into a 28 mm or so. but in what ratio exactly does this work?? and what lens do i need to use in order to get the kind of coverage i would normally get with a 24 or a 18mm??? looking forward to your help on these issues............ regards........ sumeet.

For the D1x the ratio is 1.5 and you will need a 12mm lens in order to get the 35mm equivalent of 18mm. The size of the CCD for the D1x is 23.7mm x 15.6mm. You can get a lot of information on the D1x by visiting www.dpreview.com.
Hope this helps.
