 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hey guys.
I'm working on an eye tracking project and I needed a small size camera. So I dismantled my old non working nokia phone and took out its back camera. But I don't know how to use that camera to capture live images and make it function as a regular camera. Any suggestions or help will be appreciated. Thank you smiley

Do you have a datasheet, or even a real part number for this camera yet?

I don't think you connected the grounds, Dave.

These cameras sometimes have two interfaces; and I2C control interface and a faster parallel data interface.
It's also probably low-voltage, so you're going to need level-converters.

Given that slow eight bit microcontrollers and imaging devices are not comfortable bed-fellows, I'd drop it in the bin and rethink your problem.

High speed LVDS interface for the imaging data. You will be looking at a specific ASIC or FPGA to handle that kind of data.

Maybe you /could/ make it work with a Raspberry Pi, and some heavy coding.

Arduino ? - No!
