CMOS vs CCD Cameras

So Which is better? With all the information out there you would think there would be an answer, but as of yet there really isn’t a definitive answer. The technology is constantly improving and the needs of each image are going to differ from one person to the next. For some CMOS will be superior for what they need while others will require what CCDs have to offer. We hope to show you the big difference between the two and examine some of the ideal uses for each sensor type.

CCD (Charge Coupled Device)

  • high-quality, low noise images

CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor)

  • Smaller pixel Size
  • Limitations on Binning
  • Most CMOS sensors are Small
  • Less expensive than
