Although your add says pixels are 6.2 microns square, the PFD for the Sony ICX493 Sensor says that they are 3.69 microns. What's wrong here?
Based on the specification by the manufacturer of the camera - Starlight-Xpress - the pixel size is 6.05u x 6.05u: http://www.sxccd.com/trius-sx26c. This makes sense as the sensor is ~23.4mm wide (~23,400u) and 3,900 pixels wide (~23,400 / 3,900 = ~6.0
