i bought ESP32 CAM OV2640, looks totally different in the tutorials on internet

Hello everyone.

I wanted to buy this:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/ESP32-CAM-ESP32-5V-WIFI-Bluetooth-Development-Board-with-OV2640-Camera-Module/362624868700

but, bought this by mistake

What i want to do is to take picture every 10seconds, and save to sd card.

I'm using arduino uno. How should i connect them? Where are rx tx ping of camera module in the picture?

All the tutorials and data sheets are about the one in the first link.

Thanks for your help beforehand.

the board contains an esp32 MCU. you don’t need an Uno

Thanks for replying.

So, for getting picture, what should i do now?

void setup(){
  Serial.begin(9600);
  
}

void loop(){
  while (Serial.available() > 0){
    Serial.write(Serial.read());
  }
    
}

is this code above supposed to take picture and save? or what?

no, this is Serial echo. sends received characters back.
if don't know it, then it is hopeless

Can you try to help?
I tough may be camera sending picture continuously, so i said may be i should read it.

How can i read the picture? It's not my thing to do stuff with arduino, but i need to make this done.

Step 1 on your long journey. Install Arduino for ESP32. Run examples. Learn how ESP32 works. You can find videos on Youtube if needed.

There is one example include with the ESP32 board package for a Camera Web Server. This might or might not work on your board. There appear to dozens of similar boards which might or might not be compatible with the example code.

You should have purchased the other board since it has a micro SD card slot.

The 1st module you wanted to buy is the ESP32-CAM module I have and use without issues.
The 2nd module link says it is ESP32-CAM as well (other form factor)
So the CameraWebServer example should work, see the instructions on how to compile here:

Later you might be interested in thread "Adding features to Examples->ESP32->Camera->CameraWebServer" as well:

First I added "Flash" toggle,

later much more for ov2640 global external shutter work:

Maybe this will help you.
