    GREATEST EVER....but the P-51 has outlived its time....

    Put it one on one with a F-15 and I can almost gurantee that the F-15 will win the fight, even with guns.

    Talking Re: CMOS vs CCD

    Also depends on the Pilot too. Great pilot on P51 VS a non-pilot in the F15

    But we're getting off ~topic. IMHO, CMOS and CCD has not much difference except as specified by the cameras that use em. All these are pointless to the photographer since it is only a tool for them. The Rest is History through their hands

    There will always be a preference for a cheaper part. Every part in the manufaturing line counts. Every cent saved from a component translates to better profit margin.

    Price and performance are usually inversely proportional.

    Better tools just make it easier for newbies like me to get a better shot. If you were to give me an all manual camera body with no metering, I will probably take a longer time to get a shot correctly exposed (if i get it in the first place).

    Any advanced tools are usually better if used properly and will definitely produce better results. But how do we judge better when there are so many perceptions of better?

    I'm newbie too still getting the grip of flash and portrait photography

    Anyone knows how long will a CCD/CMOS sensors last? e.g. the lifespan of the sensors before failure?...

    CCD and CMOS (or anything else) is the chip manufacturer's way to achieve/create the digital camera's sensor from silicon wafer. Both have pro and contra.

    Some says CMOS have shorter lifespan than CCD .

    How true is it? I don't know, I only hear the rumors .

    Please someone (with correct knowledge) explain for us.

    Thanks!

    To me CMOS and CCD is Nothing. All depends on the Designers, Engineers and Tech People in using them as the heart of their camera design.

    The User only needs to use the camera not the CCD or CMOS Sensor. I think this discussion is getting nowhere like those discussions of AMD VS Intel .... Apple VS Orange .... DOG VS CAT etc etc etc....

    I think should be longer than the rate the cameras get obsolete...

    either CMOS or CCD does not affect your image.

    Your head, Your thinking, Your Skills make the difference.
