Trouble report 287

Camera library values for Nikon D1 and D100 are off by about 1%

Versions affected

3.0

Description

The sensor dimension for the Nikon D1 and D100 in the V3.0 camera library are slightly inaccurate.

Camera V3.0 values Correct values
D1 23.6 x 15.5 23.7 x 15.6   [1]
D100 23.4 x 15.6 23.7 x 15.6   [2]

As a result, values for focal length will be off by about 0.4% for the D1 and about 1.2% for the D100. This should not cause significant problems, especially when using automatic focal length detection or automatic focal refinement options. However, the camera library should be corrected in the next release.
