Sensor size comparison
Sensor size is generally a good indicator of the quality of the camera.
Sensors can vary greatly in size. As a general rule, the bigger the
sensor, the better the image quality.
Bigger sensors are more effective because they have more surface area to capture light. An important factor when comparing digital cameras is also camera generation. Generally, newer sensors will outperform the older.

Pixel pitch tells you the distance from the center of one pixel (photosite) to the center of the next. It tells you how close the pixels are to each other.
The bigger the pixel pitch, the further apart they are and the bigger each pixel is. Bigger pixels tend to have better signal to noise ratio and greater dynamic range.
The bigger the pixel pitch, the further apart they are and the bigger each pixel is. Bigger pixels tend to have better signal to noise ratio and greater dynamic range.
Pixel or photosite area affects how much light per pixel can be gathered.
The larger it is the more light can be collected by a single pixel.
Larger pixels have the potential to collect more photons, resulting in greater dynamic range, while smaller pixels provide higher resolutions (more detail) for a given sensor size.

Diagonal
Diagonal is calculated by the use of Pythagorean theorem:
where w = sensor width and h = sensor height
Diagonal = √  w² + h² 
Kodak C183 diagonal
The diagonal of C183 sensor is not 1/2.3 or 0.43" (11 mm) as you might expect, but approximately two thirds of
that value  7.7 mm. If you want to know why, see
sensor sizes.
w = 6.16 mm
h = 4.62 mm
w = 6.16 mm
h = 4.62 mm
Diagonal = √  6.16² + 4.62²  = 7.70 mm 
Kodak C1530 diagonal
The diagonal of C1530 sensor is not 1/2.3 or 0.43" (11 mm) as you might expect, but approximately two thirds of
that value  7.7 mm. If you want to know why, see
sensor sizes.
w = 6.16 mm
h = 4.62 mm
w = 6.16 mm
h = 4.62 mm
Diagonal = √  6.16² + 4.62²  = 7.70 mm 
Surface area
Surface area is calculated by multiplying the width and the height of a sensor.
C183 sensor area
Width = 6.16 mm
Height = 4.62 mm
Surface area = 6.16 × 4.62 = 28.46 mm²
Height = 4.62 mm
Surface area = 6.16 × 4.62 = 28.46 mm²
C1530 sensor area
Width = 6.16 mm
Height = 4.62 mm
Surface area = 6.16 × 4.62 = 28.46 mm²
Height = 4.62 mm
Surface area = 6.16 × 4.62 = 28.46 mm²
Pixel pitch
Pixel pitch is the distance from the center of one pixel to the center of the
next measured in micrometers (µm). It can be calculated with the following formula:
Pixel pitch =  sensor width in mm  × 1000 
sensor resolution width in pixels 
C183 pixel pitch
Sensor width = 6.16 mm
Sensor resolution width = 4406 pixels
Sensor resolution width = 4406 pixels
Pixel pitch =  6.16  × 1000  = 1.4 µm 
4406 
C1530 pixel pitch
Sensor width = 6.16 mm
Sensor resolution width = 4392 pixels
Sensor resolution width = 4392 pixels
Pixel pitch =  6.16  × 1000  = 1.4 µm 
4392 
Pixel area
The area of one pixel can be calculated by simply squaring the pixel pitch:
You could also divide sensor surface area with effective megapixels:
Pixel area = pixel pitch²
You could also divide sensor surface area with effective megapixels:
Pixel area =  sensor surface area in mm² 
effective megapixels 
C183 pixel area
Pixel pitch = 1.4 µm
Pixel area = 1.4² = 1.96 µm²
Pixel area = 1.4² = 1.96 µm²
C1530 pixel area
Pixel pitch = 1.4 µm
Pixel area = 1.4² = 1.96 µm²
Pixel area = 1.4² = 1.96 µm²
Pixel density
Pixel density can be calculated with the following formula:
One could also use this formula:
Pixel density = (  sensor resolution width in pixels  )² / 1000000 
sensor width in cm 
One could also use this formula:
Pixel density =  effective megapixels × 1000000  / 10000 
sensor surface area in mm² 
C183 pixel density
Sensor resolution width = 4406 pixels
Sensor width = 0.616 cm
Pixel density = (4406 / 0.616)² / 1000000 = 51.16 MP/cm²
Sensor width = 0.616 cm
Pixel density = (4406 / 0.616)² / 1000000 = 51.16 MP/cm²
C1530 pixel density
Sensor resolution width = 4392 pixels
Sensor width = 0.616 cm
Pixel density = (4392 / 0.616)² / 1000000 = 50.84 MP/cm²
Sensor width = 0.616 cm
Pixel density = (4392 / 0.616)² / 1000000 = 50.84 MP/cm²
Sensor resolution
Sensor resolution is calculated from sensor size and effective megapixels. It's slightly higher
than maximum (not interpolated) image resolution which is usually stated on camera specifications.
Sensor resolution is used in pixel pitch, pixel area, and pixel density formula.
For sake of simplicity, we're going to calculate it in 3 stages.
1. First we need to find the ratio between horizontal and vertical length by dividing the former with the latter (aspect ratio). It's usually 1.33 (4:3) or 1.5 (3:2), but not always.
2. With the ratio (r) known we can calculate the X from the formula below, where X is a vertical number of pixels:
3. To get sensor resolution we then multiply X with the corresponding ratio:
Resolution horizontal: X × r
Resolution vertical: X
1. First we need to find the ratio between horizontal and vertical length by dividing the former with the latter (aspect ratio). It's usually 1.33 (4:3) or 1.5 (3:2), but not always.
2. With the ratio (r) known we can calculate the X from the formula below, where X is a vertical number of pixels:
(X × r) × X = effective megapixels × 1000000 → 

Resolution horizontal: X × r
Resolution vertical: X
C183 sensor resolution
Sensor width = 6.16 mm
Sensor height = 4.62 mm
Effective megapixels = 14.60
Resolution horizontal: X × r = 3313 × 1.33 = 4406
Resolution vertical: X = 3313
Sensor resolution = 4406 x 3313
Sensor height = 4.62 mm
Effective megapixels = 14.60
r = 6.16/4.62 = 1.33 

Resolution vertical: X = 3313
Sensor resolution = 4406 x 3313
C1530 sensor resolution
Sensor width = 6.16 mm
Sensor height = 4.62 mm
Effective megapixels = 14.50
Resolution horizontal: X × r = 3302 × 1.33 = 4392
Resolution vertical: X = 3302
Sensor resolution = 4392 x 3302
Sensor height = 4.62 mm
Effective megapixels = 14.50
r = 6.16/4.62 = 1.33 

Resolution vertical: X = 3302
Sensor resolution = 4392 x 3302
Crop factor
Crop factor or focal length multiplier is calculated by dividing the diagonal
of 35 mm film (43.27 mm) with the diagonal of the sensor.
Crop factor =  43.27 mm 
sensor diagonal in mm 
C183 crop factor
Sensor diagonal in mm = 7.70 mm
Crop factor =  43.27  = 5.62

C1530 crop factor
Sensor diagonal in mm = 7.70 mm
Crop factor =  43.27  = 5.62

35 mm equivalent aperture
Equivalent aperture (in 135 film terms) is calculated by multiplying lens aperture
with crop factor (a.k.a. focal length multiplier).

Aperture is a lens characteristic, so it's calculated only for
fixed lens cameras. If you want to know the equivalent aperture for
Kodak C183, take the aperture of the lens
you're using and multiply it with crop factor.
