headlight-smear.JPGCMOS image sensor-equipped cameras are starting to chip away at the once CCD-dominant playing field, and as they become more prominent, some of the chips’ unique sensor artifacts are becoming more familiar. Both CCD and CMOS sensors have their own technical quips that are worth noting, as Barry Green details in his thorough write-up on the sensors and their trademark artifacts. If terms like rolling shutter, skew, wobble, or partial exposure don’t ring a bell, you might want to do yourself a favor and learn up about these unique artifacts and the sensors that are responsbile for them.
