Does anyone know the difference between CCDs and CMOS? I'm shopping for a new new camera and don't know this difference.

Thank you

google it. the biggest thing with cmos is the rolling shutter effect. The benefit of a CMOS is that they are cheaper. Some of the higher end cameras by sony or panasonic with CMOS chips deal with the rolling shutter better than the others.

CMOS is pretty much most cameras today so I'd say don't stress about it.

I agree with the not to stress about it but I'm a firm believer in knowing the short comings and limitations. Then you can creatively work around them.

I shoot mostly documentaries where I show up in many different indoor environments and have to shoot with mostly available lighting. I have a CMOS and a CCD camera and on almost every job with the CMOS camera at least one room or wall or something is creating a strobing bar effect-- rolling shutter-- due to a particular combination of florescent bulbs and frequencies and whatever.

So if you are run and gun at real-world locations, be aware. It's not always pretty.
