 real size of the image in the CMOS on May 18, 2009 at 11:43:14 pm

Hi everybody, it's my first post, and I need some help...

somebody knows the real size of the active image in the Panasonic HVX - HPX???
Ok, we know that the HVX's CMOS size is 1/3". But, this is the real size of the image? or no?
I guess not.
I was searching this f**king number, but i didn't found it nowhere. I need this to calculate the size of the scenery that we will need relative to the camera lens.

Thanks!! (and sorry for my poor english)

David, thanks for the quickly response
I realize that isn't there the size of the P2 sensor. And neither is 16:9. I'll check this info and make calculus.

thanks!

If you are trying to calculate the width and height of your set then I think all you need is the picture size ratio of width to height or 16:9. Some sensors produce images with this ratio, but their actual dimensions are different. So, 16/9 would equal width/height. If your set is limited by height, plug in that number and you can calculate the width (W = 16H/9) or vice versa (H = 9W/16). I hope that's right. It's been a while since algebra.
