Processing the camera signal

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I know this seems a little bit off-topic, but I found your site interesting and I was wondering if I can get some help. I am starting a project (as a student) which takes a photo from a small digital camera and sends it to a computer for processing. The missing part is I don't know what camera to use and how to trigger it to take a photo, then send that photo to the computer. Can you please provide any help considering that issue?

PS: i have a great knowledge in microcontrollers(specificly pic18f452)

Thanks in Advance,

Michel M.

Maybe you could tell us the bit you do know :D

Maybe one of the many published "Dakota Digital Camera" hacks would be what you need. Just Google for it.

Also, several digital cameras use the SunPlus chip set (and others like it); There are some USB based projects on the web where custom drivers are being written to allow host communication (mostly for the Linux community, but that may still be helpful).
