# Rocket Camera, CMOS vs. CCD

sparky.illini
I'm looking for a small camera to use in my rocket. It's about a 7' rocket, 4" diameter and 3" long viewing window. I've heard that the choices are either cmos or ccd but I dont know the difference between the two. I'm only looking to spend up to $100 (really looking in the$50 range). Any specific cameras you've already worked with? How easy is it to modify?

Thanks.
