Seems to me the CMOS is for speed as in video recording. As soon as they started to offer video in regular cameras they all went to cmos. Chicken or Egg??


I can show at the 2/3" sensor level, as used by the CCD Fuji S100fs bridge cam and the CMOS Fuji X10 EXR sensor cam and the CMOS Fuji X20 X-Trans sensor cam that the 2008 S100fs out-resolves/reveals finer detail than the 2011 X10.

I haven't done the same test with the 2013 X20 yet, and I am not sure which way it will go because the X20 is sharp and shows a lot more detail than the X10.

However, in my brief play with a D200 (which has to be sent back because it is faulty) I cannot see anything "different" as far as IQ goes.
