image_sensorCCD and CMOS are two type of image sensors for digital cameras. Both CCD (charge-coupled device) and CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) image sensors have one preliminary objectivity - they have to convert light into electron. While CCD sensors create high-quality, low-noise images; CMOS sensors, traditionally, are more susceptible to noise. There are such differences and similarities between them.
But how do we get a comprehensive idea about them?

Gadgetophilia has researched and written a brief note on image capturing techniques and technology of these two sensors. There is also a comparative analysis from which you’ll learn that the CMOS sensors are cheaper and less power consuming than CCDs. However, CCD’s have better resolution but have some errors like smear.

So if you want to teach yourself about these two image sensor processes, here is  A Guide to CCD and CMOS technology.
