Item Description:

ArduCAM-M-5MP is optimized version of ArduCAM shield Rev.C, and is a high definition 5MP SPI camera, which reduce the complexity of the camera control interface. It integrates 5MP CMOS image sensor OV5642, and provides miniature size, as well as the easy to use hardware interface and open source code library. The ArduCAM mini can be used in any platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Maple, Chipkit, Beaglebone black, as long as they have SPI and I2C interface and can be well mated with standard Arduino boards. ArduCAM mini not only offers the capability to add a camera interface which doesn’t have in some low cost microcontrollers, but also provides the capability to add multiple cameras to a single microcontroller.

Good Arduino Camera Review by Randy
We ran this product on the Arduino Mega and Nano. It works well. The only issue is a lack of resolution. To get the camera to interface to the 16MHz Arduino processor, they process the camera's 5MP to something like 60KP. This compression allows the Arduino to work with the camera and store images to an SD card.

However, I could not find a way to get anything close to 5MP in an image.

The other benefit, there are a lot of lenses for this camera. We purchased all the lenses with the camera. (Posted on 5/4/2016)
