I hope it doesn't cost too much, being such a large sensor. Most security cams don't use sensors that big, so I don't know what to expect in terms of the enclosure size or lens size either.

Does anyone else think it is stupid that sensor sizes are represented as fractions of a decimal number? 1/2.8" should just be called 0.357", and 1/1.2" should be 0.833". It would be so much more intuitive. Or they could use millimeters, where 1/2.8" is 9.07 millimeters, and 1/1.2" is 21.17 millimeters.

Yes. 100%. I never understood it. Maybe someone can explain it. I rather have mm. I know it is basic fractions but many probably think 1/1.2 is smaller.
