CMOS chips do not draw as much power, produce as much heat, or costs as much to produce as comparable CCDs. However, unlike a CCD, the CMOS values are read sequentially (a rolling shutter), which can cause image distortions with fast-moving subjects or when the amount of illumination changes significantly during the exposure.
