Sony has introduced a new lightweight camera, but this one is different in that it uses a CCD sensor - no rolling shutter that is the main source of the "Jell-o Effect".

Plenty of cameras have CCDs. Not very new.

Not lightweight cameras. Just try to find one.  All you can find are CMOS cameras, CCD is very rare. 

Actually, CCD board cams have been around for a while. In fact this one has established itself as one of the go to cams for FPV:

The Pixim Seawolf is the new hotness. ;)

That's pretty cool to know there's a modern CCD camera available with some pretty good specifications. Though the wobble effect can be eliminated from other cameras. Folks who experience a wobble effect with a CMOS sensor have improperly mounted their camera. Also this camera will bring with it all of the cons of CCD sensors (like smearing). Thanks for the link!

The "Jell-o" effect is the nature of CMOS cameras with any movement.  Yes, properly mounted and with vibration mitigation you can reduce it to a tolerable level, but the rolling shutter is always there.  CCD sensors have no rolling shutter issue, but if overxposed, you get the vertical smear.
