First of all, sensors are made using two types of chip technology. They’re often used in sensor descriptions so it makes sense to mention […]
An older type of digital camera sensor still used on a few specialised cameras but now mostly replaced with more efficient CMOS sensors. These produce less heat and noise and are better suited to use in cameras with full time live view and video features.
