What is CCD and CMOS?
In summary CCD (charge-coupled device) and CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) are different types of image sensors used in digital cameras. These image sensors convert light into electrons in combination with other technologies inorder to capture images. The introduction of CMOS sensors have helped to bring down the prices of digital cameras as they are less expensive to manufacture then CCD sensors. For more information see wikipedia here
