How to change CMOS to CCD on a DSLR. I'm adamant this is possible.? Answered

There are many pros and cons to both CMOS and CCD respectively, but I'd like to experiment with the two anyway, involving hacking a DSLR camera, which hosts a CMOS image sensor (which uses rolling shutter) and changing this to a CCD (which is an instant shutter).

As well as the technical changes, would there be other things to consider, like programming within the DSLR?


Forget it. It's not feasible. The readout electronics for ccd are wildly different from cmos ones

I would think the electronic and software changes as well as the alignment issues would be considerable. BUT I have no experience of doing this nor can I find anyone who has.
