CMOS Versus CCD
Can anyone advise me what's the difference between CMOS and CCD Sensor?
Which is a better technology? How does it affect photography?
I notice Canon 10D, 300D is using CMOS.

cmos apparently uses less power. the rest of the difference are technical and dont affect me so i dont know. but power has always been an issue for me... hence.

Canon's CMOS sensor is coupled with a good image processor to achieve relatively low noise even at high ISO speeds. Apparently their CMOS technology produces less noise compared to CCD (used in their EOS 1D).
