Hello!

iPhone camera modules sell pretty cheap on e-bay.

here for example an iPhone 4 one with 5MP for 15€:

is it feasible to interface such a camera with arduino? Did anyone do so successfully (or for another model..)?

thanks

Hard to tell if that connector is 32 or 64 pins.  Either way it's likely to be hard to interface to.

I have the same question of the feasibility of integrating an iphone 4 camera module with an arduino mega 2560. I have located the pins out diagram. http://imageshack.us/f/219/picture6om.png/

Hi!
Where can I find a datasheet from this camera modul?
We have the pinouts of Iphone camera, but How can we configure it?
I need a descreption of registers...
If anyone has a good datasheet or example please share with us/me.
Thanks.

The camera probably has an I2C control interface.
That would be relatively easy to talk to.
Not so easy is the high speed parallel data interface.

I'm glad genesys started this thread!

The iphone cameras are from OVT. I was researching this a while back but got sidetracked.
It would be great to collaborate on how we can interface this with the Arduino boards.

The specs on these cameras are very impressive.

I am interested in other mobilephone camera.
Samsung Galaxy, HTC or LG, etc.
Has anybody a datasheet from mobilphone camera?
Or example, link,etc.
Thx.

Hi guys.
Have anyone of you got thid work?

I think of mount a camera on a card and send wirelessly and all from arduino

Best,
