I'm designing device based on ARM7 LPC2103 microcontroller and OV9650 camera. I found that OmniVision datasheets are extremely wretched. Enough that they are missing a lot of info, so they are full of ugly mistakes. I was able to get some valid image only because of I learned other datasheets and used camera register settings from rare examples and linux drivers. Is there some manual, or other info, or somebody experience which gives simply CORRECT description of registers ? To be specific, I want to get CIF, QCIF and QQCIF resolutions in RGB555 format, good quality, and achieve minimum motion blur at high framerate (exposure time settings, i guess).
Afair: - you get only personalized datasheets from o* with your name printed as watermark on every page - only after signing NDA But then you will get a datasheet with more than 200 pages... ask the manufacturer. hth, Joerg
do you have the code in C to grab images form ov9650? if yes then can you please upload it? i have to interface this camera with a parallax propeller...
Attached you will find two examples I published early in forum where I shared my experience on working with this camera (in russian): http://roboforum.ru/forum36/topic7835.html http://roboforum.ru/forum10/topic8282.html P.S.: Attachment doesn't work on this forum (I tried with IE 7 and Opera 11).
