I am now trying to get the picture image from the cam by using the Arduino Duemilanove.
However, I don't really know the connection between them.

Cam : C3088

Looks to me like the camera has 16 data pins and a pixel clock pin to let you know when to read the data.  That's a LOT of data to read.  You'll need the datasheet for the camera chip:

Thx for reply. =)

Yes. I know the camera need lots of pins. I found that some project was used this C3088 with ATmega16.
However, the Arduino Duemilanove use the ATmega328. It seems that the pins is not enough.
So, is it possible to connect them together? smiley-cry

If its fast enough, you might be able to use one of these(or similar)!

It allows you to read/write many pins using a few.

Do you mean this project:  http://www.robozes.com/inaki/dproject/report.pdf

Looks like they read one pixel per scan line so they get one column per field.  Since there are 320 columns it will take about 11 seconds to get an entire image and, since the Arduino has no place to store that amount of data, it has to be sent to a host computer as fast as it comes in.

Thx. But I am not familiar with this product.
After the connection, will the data from the cam be lost? or which pins can connect to the Arduino through this device??

I will connect the SD card board for saving the data and pic. However, I still don't know is it possible to connect them together.

First, tell us what you expect/hope to be able to do with this camera.

Hi,

I just wanted to take snapshots periodically. If possible i wanted to change some of the properties of the camera as brightness etc.


Thanks,

And do what with them? Send the data to the bit bucket? Then, why bother?

http://www.robozes.com/inaki/dproject/report.pdf might be worth a look.

With this memory extension on a mega, you can store one frame, but only one frame.  smiley-wink
