Well with my personal experience with both it really depends what you want. CMOS need alot of light to produce a good image and with that it does not do well in low light (like the new sony V1U) Now CCD’s produce a great image in low light and moderate amounts of light. CCD produces a sharp image in my oppinion and is still beter quality than CMOS. Now CMOS are smaller chips that CCD and that has it’s own problem within that, you lose some depth of feild and the image looks a little "wrong". Though CMOS have been arounf for awile sony and other companys have started to use them because they see if you can get alot of light in they do produce a wonderful image. CCD are larger and very reliable to the avrage shooter. And HD CCD’s hands down are the way to go.
