Image Sensor


Definition: An image sensor refers to a basic component of a digital model which is used for recording an image or a photo.

When light comes into the digital lens, it hits the image sensor. The light then will be converted into electrical charges by the image sensor. Finally, those electrical charges turn into the pixels which constitute the image.

CMOS and CCD technologies are two different types used in an image sensor of a digital model. Because the CMOS technology has low power consuming and speed, it has been becoming more than CCD.

A camera resolution is defined by how many pixels are included in an image sensor. By having the number of pixels multiplied vertically and horizontally, you’re going to find the maximum number of resolution with the sensor. This number is listed as megapixels or abbreviated as MP).

Also Called: CMOS or CCD
