This new camera, now available in the Maker Shed, can be a great addition to your project. It was designed to be used in security systems and does two main things – it outputs NTSC video and can take snapshots of that video and transmit them over the TTL serial link. You can snap pictures at 640×480, 320×240 or 160×120 and they are pre-compressed into JPEG images which makes them nice, small and easy to store on an SD card. Perfect for a data-logging, security, or photography projects. It also packs a lot of features such as manually adjustable focus, auto-white-balance, auto-brightness, auto-contrast and built in motion detection. That means you can have it alert your project when something moved in the frame. Oh, and did I mention that it’s Arduino compatible? We have an Arduino library for this camera available right on the product page.
