This Is How Your Digital Camera's CCD Chip Works

I enjoy new technology and I also love to know how my gadgets actually work. I constantly find myself watching Bill Hammack's videos on Youtube because he does a fantastic job of explaining extremely complicated things in a way that I can understand. In this video "The Engineer Guy" explains the technology behind our digital cameras.

He's the Bill Nye science guy for Adults!  

Wow... that was incredibly informative and specific!

very nice... never had an idea how the digital camera works before....

Now i just want a foveon sensor in my D200... 

All right! I've already started to cut off some aluminum strips. Once I find a slab of silicon I'll turn my F5 into a digital cam...

 I love my Nikon F5. Built like a Tank. Perfect exposure every time.

So, how does a CMOS (that all newer DSLR's, except MF cameras, use) work? :3
