    Default CMOS vs CCD

    Some people told me CCD sensors are always better than CMOS sensors. Then why are those DSLRs still using CMOS sensors? Something which I don't understand.... WHY WHY TELL ME WHY?!?!

    There are more to be found if you had just take a little effect to go to Yahoo and type in "differences CMOS & CCD".

    Sorry for not searching beforehand, but, according to the websites mentioned, they seem to be advocating that CMOS are better than CCD in many ways. Why then are people saying that CCD lenses are always better? This is what I don't understand.

    they may be comparing between CCD used in consumer/prosumer digital cameras and CMOS used in webcam/toy digicams. The CMOS used in those webcam digicams are of lower quality, and is very susceptible to noise. That is why some people advocate that CCD is better.

    When CMOS is produced at a higher quality level, then the advantages you've been reading about will appear more transparent.

    By the way, there is no "CCD lens". CCD is the imaging sensor. Lenses are made of glass or plastic.

    You can search for the very topic on DPReview under the Nikon forum. It was discussed recently.
