I have a question about the CCD size of a digicam, which clearly matters as far as noise is concerned. One always reads of CCD sizes like 1/2.5 inch or 1/1.8 inch. What does this mean? Does this mean that the CCD size is 0.4 inch or is it 2.5 inch and why does one use fractions for CCD sizes.

THIS will briefly answer your question.
