I recommend first calculating the active area of the sensor using the active pixels and pixel pitch. This is because CMOS sensor size format types are categories, not exact values. Did I make a correct assumption regarding finding the sensor dimensions using similar triangles? I think I did because I tried the same method on the Sony IMX253 with known ...
