Its cmos but a good picture.
The very first color camera I had was exactly the same externally. And it also was the worst I've ever had, it was giving a nice red picture as soon as there was some sun out there... another proof you can get very different equipment but with the exact same appearance...

The cheap CMOS cameras you see on eBay all say they need 9v to 12v input but that's only because they have a 5v regulator in the cable or on the circuitboard.
But if you want a CCD camera to run from 5v there's a couple of options, find a 5v CCD camera such as the Panasonic KX121 or KX131, or get standard 12v CCD camera and a voltage booster to power it from 5v (like the excellent AnyVolt Mini from http://www.dimensionengineering.com )

Yes but the cheap cameras all perform like cheap cameras.

the first 2 of those cameras I got were good but the last one was rubbish, funny as it looked just the same but gave a horrible dark band across the picture when it was pointed at the sky. Stick with the 131
