Rocket Camera, CMOS vs. CCD

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

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.

Well, for starters, Oskee-wow-wow!

Second, I doubt you are going to find much in that price range. I was just talking about the differences between CMOS and CCD with a colleague earlier in the day today actually, and it seems the biggest difference is that a CCD can operate faster from what I could tell. You may try Googling it though since I am not an expert.
