I am working on crawler and main PCB is based on ATMega1284p.
I want to add a camera to this tank which will be able to take a photo or record short video. These actions must be controlled with ATMega1284.
So MCU will just send signal (with a cable) and camera will take a picture and save it to camera's internal SD card.
And this is where I need some help.
- what small and cheap camera should I choose for this purpose?
- how can ATMega chip communicate with this camera?
I found many cheap cameras for this but all where based on wifi-communication and I don't want these because I want to make it very power efficient. So camera will be turned off or in stand-by mode most of the time.
