Very true. In brightly lit


Very true. In brightly lit locations, A CCD and a CMOS chip are fairly comparable. If someone were shooting outdoor events during the daytime, I would say a CMOS camera is a good way to save a few bucks over the pricier CCD counterparts.

However, in low light situations, CMOS chips start running into problems due to the rolling shutter effect. The slower your exposure time, the worse it gets. Skewed images, the wobble effect, they’re both major turn-offs for me. The one and only thing I like about CMOS is that there’s no streaking if a light crosses your path. But even then, sometimes that streaking can work to your benefit for adding artistic flare. If I had to use a CMOS chipset, I’d live with it, but I’d much rather have my 3 CCD’s πŸ™‚
