Looking for extremely small camera

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for an extremely small camera for a project (in the order of 0.5cm x 0.5cm x 0.5cm). So far I've found the arducam http://www.arducam.com/ but the models they have are still too big. I wanted something similar to this one found on google glass http://goo.gl/o9ugIk. Does anybody have clue where I could find something like that?

Sorry, I can't assist, but I can't resist sharing this old joke...

"Please help, I'm looking for a small dog with one eye"

"Well if he's that small, you should use both eyes"

Badum... tish

Hi, this is the smallest I could find so far. Didn't try it though. Cheers, Robert

Thanks Robert, this seems to be much smaller than the one I found before. It is still larger than what I wanted though. I wonder if I can separate the camara from the logic board and connect them using wires.

Hm, I wouldn't know how to do that. However Pls let us know if it works.

There are several thread here about interfacing these camera modules to Arduino.


The actual sensor elements in these camera look like this


which more or less meets your size requirement. I bought one of these by mistake. You would need to make an interface board to connect this too, which doesn't seem to me like a feasible task.
