Moved from the sensors category. This camera PCB looks promising. Here is the original thread:http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,111406.0.html
Thanks hackhd for introducing this to the group. http://www.hackhd.com/Here is hackhd's original post:
We just got our first shipment of HackHD camera boards in. They are pretty much like the GoPro and Contour cameras but they have 9 screw pin terminals to plug everything into it such as the power source, LED, microphone, video out cable, and of course the button. This makes them multi-purpose and especially popular for hobby applicaitons. I wanted to offer you arudionoers here a good deal on them in exchange for hopefully posting some cool code and projects that we can publish on our website. Since the camera uses one button operation to record, stop, turn on, etc, when the button is grounded, the Arduino could easily be used to control that button and hook up to a variety of sensors, motion, light, etc..
I would love to get some feedback and suggestions from the board. I have been a long time Arduino user and designed this board based on the being a great accessory for it. This camera is the real deal as far as quality goes, you can see some comparison videos on our youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/hackhdcamera?feature=mhee
. This isn't meant to be spam or an advertisement, I really want the Arduino community helping out with this project and I will remove any links or references if asked.
