I have an old webcam (this model = http://www.logitech.com/en-us/support/4266?crid=405&osid=14&bit=64) that functions well, but I no longer use it. I would like to build a wireless camera based off of ladyada’s guide (found here = Internet of Things Camera -). My camera seems to have the same pinouts on the board. It does have 2 extra, but I believe those are for the audio portion of the webcam component.
Can I do this? I simply want to use the camera I already own to take pictures according to the guide, not videos.
I have read different topics on this forum about topics similar to this, but they are slightly different (or not specific). From my research, it seems that Arduino has trouble with receiving USB data. However, serial data is fine. This does not make sense to me as USB is still serial (just universal too).
Yes, I know I can buy another webcam. I also have random computer components lying around. To me, it is better to use what I have before I buy anything more.
Thank you for your time,
