Arduino Panorama Photography with ArduCAM

Panoramic photograph is a technique of photography, using specialized equipment or software, that captures images with elongated fields of view. It is sometimes known as wide format photography. In order to create panorama photos, you have to take several photos from different view point and stitching them afterwards. There are basically two ways to get these photos, one is to use one camera and shooting from different position, the other is to use multiple cameras and shooting at the same time. The later has better stitching result than the former and requires less photography experience, but more complex hardware equipment.

With the hardware nature of ArduCAM shields especially the ArduCAM-mini and Multi-Adapter board for Raspberry, you can connect multiple cameras to a single Arduino or Raspberry Pi board, even shoot the cameras at the same time. In this demonstration we will use 4 ArduCAM mini 5MP with its adapter board and an Arduino UNO R3 board to create your own panoramas or virtual tours.

ArduCAM now Supports ESP8266 Arduino Board with WIFI Websocket Camera Demo

It is good news to hear that the Arduino IDE support was announced on the ESP8266 community forum, the source code can be found from . It is more than another Arduino board, but can be thought as a Arduino combined with a WIFI shield. With faster CPU speed and much smaller form of factor, most important the less than $10USD price is more attractive, you are worth to try although there are also some limitations. Setup is fairly simple with downloads for Linux, OS X, and Windows. More detail setup can be found from adafruit guide. Continue reading “ArduCAM now Supports ESP8266 Arduino Board with WIFI Websocket Camera Demo” »
