New ESP32-CAM module

Postby Deouss » Tue Oct 09, 2018 2:59 pm

I just ordered ESP32 Camera Development Board with Camera Module OV2640 2MP
I plan to experiment with camera transmission/reception.
Maybe someone has already tried that model and can share the insides )

Hopefully it is going to work fine ;)

I have to say it was really fun to playing with this board. My final result is esp32 http server with options to change resolution and jpeg quality(compression level) from website on the fly and capture image on demand.

Hi, I also bought a copy. However, I'm new to ESP32. I have to connect this to the USB port of my computer somehow, right? How do I do that?

I have one of these that I had bought for ESP8266, would that be useful at all? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/USB-swi ... 75353.html

yeh you can use one of those to program it though you will need to mod one thing, you need 5v.
So need to connect up the 5v and gnd pin on the opposites corner of the camera module to 5v which is not available on the header of that device but you can find it on the regulator easily enough, then you need rx to the module U0T and tx to camera U0R, you can then open a terminal program and verify the camera is talking, close that, connect camera IO0 (between IO18 and ground, it looks like IO6 on my silkscreen) and hit reset and camera will be ready for an upload.

click on first link "spec" on this page for a bit of camera info https://m.seeedstudio.com/productDetail/3153

Is this code available somewhere?
