A commercially available off the shelf CMOS Image Sensor was irradiated with neutron and proton beams. The Image Sensor is equipped with standard video output. The data were collected on VHS videotapes and analyzed off-line after digitization. The camera chip with 110 000 pixels each having 12 x 12 mum(2) size, shows the nuclear reactions occurring in the sensitive layer as bright spots or tracks. Several applications are suggested based on the inexpensive CMOS Image Sensor.
