CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor) is a technology for making electronic devices, including processor chips and camera sensors. Currently (2008) only a few cameras (such as the high-end Canon EOS 5D) use CMOS sensors, compared to the vast number using CCD devices.

As a logic technology, it is fairly low in power consumption, but can be relatively slow in comparison to other logic families. However, CMOS camera sensors are both lower in power and faster than CCD components.
