Mark, the only other thing I found out is that on the 8300 sensor, which is what I was interested in, the overscan area is made up of real pixels on the sensor which are physically shielded from exposure to light by a metal shield. It is possible for proper imaging pixels to overflow into the overscan pixels rendering them useless, most often seen when combining pixel in a higher binning mode, and is due to the small well depth of the 8300 chips.
