ArduCAM Mini Cameras Tutorial

  • Overview
    This Tutorial is a demo of how to use ArduCAM Mini 2MP/5MP camera modules
    on Arduino UNO R3.
  • This demo needs:
    Arduino UNO R3 Board(x1),
    ArduCAM Mini 2MP camera module(x1),
    Dupont connector wires M-F(x8).
  • Getting Started ArduCAM Mini Camera modules with Arduino IDE
    1.Copying libraries
    The latest source code library and examples can be downloaded from the https://github.com/ArduCAM/Arduino.
    The ArdCAM library is designed for Arduino platform,which is composed by four sub-libraries It is ArduCAM,ArduCAM_Touch,0V7670FIFO and UTFT4ArduCAM_SPI. These four libraries should be copied right under the libraries of Arduino directory in order to be recognized by the Arduino IDE. Also, the README.md is important,you should have a look.Configure the camera setting You need to modify the memorysaver.h file in order to enable OV2640_MINI_2MP or OV5642_MINI_5MP_PLUS or OV5640_MINI_5MP_PLUS camera modules.

    Only one camera can be enabled at a time.The memorysaver.h file is under the ArduCAM libraries of Arduino directory in order to be recognized by the Arduino IDE.After that open the Arduino IDE,Select Arduino/Genuino Uno board from
    Tools->Board menu.

    Select the example from File->Examples->ArduCAM->mini->ArduCAM_Mini_Video_Streaming and upload it.

    Open ArduCAM_Host_V2.0_Windows Host app.
    (Arduino\libraries\ArduCAM\examples\host_app\ArduCAM_Host_V2.0_Windows).
