I thought CCD was passing or gone?

I took a look at a few top selling cameras and all have moved to CMOS. Can you reveal more?

I use the cameras to monitor the atoms and to extract different parameters from the images. In particular I measure the number of atoms using the camera. So I am sure that I need CCD camera not CMOS. I want to compare the cameras with this specification to know wich one is better?

In that case you write up how to test which is best then get samples to test. After the samples are tested you write up the results and present your findings.
