Default Tell me please, why Canon D60 have ...

Tell me please, why Canon D60 have bigest resolution than Canon D30. I know that the physical size of the CMOS sensor is the same in both cameras.
Thank you.

Hi Andrey,
It's because there are double the number of photodiodes on the sensor itself for the D60.

The actual number of photodiodes (photosites) on the D30's sensor is around 3.2 million and about double this on the D60's. Because there are twice as many in the same physical space, the D60's photosites are smaller.

Best regards,

Lin
