Thread: CCD and CMOS Sensor

  1. #1

    Default CCD and CMOS Sensor

    Hi All,

    does any one know the different between a CCD and CMOS Sensor(if there is any different at at all).
    What about the image Quality?

    Thanks

    Here's some good links:

    1. www.google.com

    2. Is CMOS sensor really better than CCD's?

    It's astonishing how much you can find if you only try.

    Perhaps we worry too much about technology that we tend to forget about the operator.
    To me CMOS and CCD sensor Technology practically has the came function...to store digitized images in our digital cameras.

    Errr...., you mean to capture image and convert to digitized images? To store digitized images is memory card job.

    CMOS or CCD is a manufacturer way/process to achieve something from what we know as silicon wafer.

    Both have their own advantages and disadvantages.

    My Bad, I got a little blur just now...whether its cmos or ccd, its job is to capture the scene and digitize it to be stored in the memory card...sorry for the misunderstandings

    I prefer Canon CMOS, low noise at ISO 3200

    We're talking about CCD vs. CMOS, not brand vs. brand. Please stay on-topic.

    I noticed that professional female models and portraits tend to be shot with Canon whilst professional landscapes etc with Nikon. Is softness generally associated with Canon and hardness with Nikon? Do girls like their photos Canonised whils guys Nikonised?

    Anyone care to elaborate?

    You started it with "I prefer Canon CMOS, low noise at ISO 3200".

    So that brings the brand into it. So might as well also mention it blows highlights? Or now should we compare it to Sony CMOS? No, right? So don't mention a brand name and then claim "there is no brand vs. brand".

    Anyone knows of a site where they have exactly the same pic in both CCD and CMOS? That should settle things a little.

    Here my friend: http://www.dpreview.com

    That should answer all your doubts about the quality issues.

    Talking Re: CCD and CMOS Sensor

    All I know is CMOS and CCDs are just a bunch of Nano Components...the cutting edge of these two lie on the hands of the professional designers that make them work in a camera body.

    We as photographer will use them accordingly no matter the Brand of it
    Any short comings?...work around it
    Wish for the day our camera bodies could interchange sensors too
