Ah thanks, excellent low numberjamesh wrote:More information. Just weighed the module...
So all up weight is 3.4g - should make it a good options for balloon flights.
- PCB+Camera module 2.4g
RIbbon cable 1.0g
I don't think we've ever tested it. The current varies with what the camera is actually doing - when not actually capturing they are pretty low power, even when on. We've had manufacturers making us turn stuff off between video frames to save power....not-scott wrote:Looks great. I'm looking at putting a Model A and camera module together for a portable webcam (with or without a USB microphone), any ideas on what current the camera draws? I expect it would fluctuate with the various settings, but are there maximum and minimum values?
We think about 15cm should be a maximum but you might get away with more. Shorter will be fine, but you would have to source it yourself. The lens/sensor module is an integrated chunk - see the picture on the first page of this thread.peepo wrote:looking good,
what lengths is the ribbon available in?
is there anything more cable like?
ie the ribbon is rather large and ungainly...
how is the camera lens attached?
is it a standard M12 screw board mount 18mm centres?
or soldered/glued in place?
Hint: the picture could be HD1080?
I doubt that will be available on launch (although marketed at that speed, the datasheet only goes up to 90fps), but hopefully soon after if I get the time to try it out and talk to Omnivision.peepo wrote:120fps at 320x240 gets my vote!
the 2007 ps3 eye camera had this, so after 6 years the latest kit should be able to match and raise.
hopefully, the dropped frames will be zero.
get it on...
One of the problems of these sensors is that they and their connectors are just so small, you need a dedicated PCB with a dedicated connector on it for each sensor. In most respects they are great for the price though.Traste wrote:This is sweet!
I had a feeling it would be something similar to the iphone 4/4S camera module, i even bought one dirt cheap off ebay (they are selling for less than $3), but the darn iphone connectors are so tiny it's impossible to connect it to anything (other than an iphone 4 that is).
This one seems to come without the "flash" LED, but i am sure the Pi Community will figure out plenty of hacks adapting these cameras to work with the Pi once the groundwork has been done.
The near future sure is exciting!
Yes, you should be able to do that.janek wrote:Hi, are we going to be able to adjust compresion levels of video stream?
So we could stream 720p with 2Mbit/s over 3G modem.
No real chance - there are only a few in existence so far. However, it won't be long before release, so it won't be long before you can get one.ejcmdq wrote:Jamesh, good evening
We're security company, the camera for pi sounds very interesting. Any chances of an alpha or beta release? We usually do R&D along with IP cameras companies in the security cameras, so maybe we can help the community too.
