An image sensor is a type of transducer (an electronic device that converts one type of energy to another). This particular type of transducer converts light (visual images) to electronic signals, in essence capturing images in an electronic form: pixels. Image sensors are used in digital cameras and other imaging equipment and usually consist of an arrangement of charge-coupled devices (CCD).
