Remove these two screws to detach the sensor from the lens

The sensor has a typical 1/2.5" size. That's not a big sensor.

Here you have a 5 polish zloty coin for comparison.

5 polish zloty's is about $1.80, in case you don't grasp the size yet :)

The CCD is very shinny.

6 megapixels from a 1 / 2.5" sensor is like expecting 70 megapixels from a 35mm film camera. It's still better then pumping 12 megapixels out of a pinhead sized sensor in mobile phones.

Manufacturers, please stop the megapixel war. Thank you.
