Sensor image capture

Good evening, I need a small sensor to capture an image in shades of gray, and after some alterations is to print a display. Values ??is to split into 8x8 arrays. Anyone know of these types of sensors (CCD or others) or shilds?

thanks a lot

Some camera modules have a serial or spi interface which can be used to retrieve a picture. Like this one: http://learn.adafruit.com/ttl-serial-camera/

What total resolution do you want? The arduino only has 2K of memory so you can’t store too many pixels.

I want something like this, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MItX9Pv5U4o&feature=player_embedded (i find this today) this has a resolution 112 * 112, of which 14 blocks of 8x8, is more than enough for me.

The most importante is make arrays of blocks 8x8 pixeis. But i want something simple, and with libraries, because this part isn´t important for my work. I only want capture same intensities of gray, make my codification and print the result.

Krodal, this is a lot, only need a pixel picture with grays :) but thanks for ideia

So that is 12K of memory. Far too much.

Just to have 8X8 pixels will take up 64 bytes.

But i want something simple, and with libraries, because this part isn´t important for my work.

I don't think something like this exists.

I happened to run across this today and remembered this thread. Looks like exactly what you're looking for:

Optical Flow Sensor

Features:

  • ADNS-3080 optical sensor.
  • High speed motion detection.
  • Up to 6400 fps update rate.
  • 30x30 pixel resolution.
  • Includes an 8mm lens which can be replaced, depending on the use requirements
  • Standard M12 x 0.5 lens mount

Even has an Arduino library. I can think of many things this could be useful for myself too. Enjoy!
