Cadmium Sulfide (Cell).A battery powered, current-modulating. light-sensing cell that was quite popularwith lots of cameras exposure metering system and external metering devices. Maybe this extra will help, photo conductive material used in exposure meters as alternativeto selenium-based or silicon blue photocells. Its electrical resistance decreasesas the light falling on it increases. Cds meters use current from an external powersource, such as a battery.
