I am writing you because I bought your “Arducam Mini Module Camera Shield w / 5 MP OV5642 for Arduino UNO Mega2560 board” but I can’t get it to work.
I read your guides but when I open the “ArduCAM_Host_V2” application I don’t see anything. When I click on “Connect” only “COM is open” appears. The version selected is 5642. In the memorysaver file I don’t comment only the line “#define OV5642_MINI_5MP” and in Arduino I tried to load all the examples. I wanted to try streaming. What can I do? For what reason? Thank you
Arducam support team :
Do you have some pictures of the MINI 5MP Camera so we can check which version on your hands?
We would like you to know that we have updated MINI 5MP to MINI 5MP Plus about 1 year ago.
Could you please do not comment “#define OV5642_MINI_5MP PLUS” and have a try?
thanks for the support. this is the tutorial I followed : https://www.arducam.com/knowledge-base/mini-tutorial/
I buy also mini module camera shield but …i have 1000 errors… next step is use it…
I installed libraries as you tell me.
On all file examples i change.
const int CS = 10; because, i try with pin 10 (i also try to use pin 7 CS with cables)
My memorysaver file is:
//Only when using raspberry,enable it
//There are two steps you need to modify in this file before normal compilation
//Only ArduCAM Shield series platform need to select camera module, ArduCAM-Mini series platform doesn’t
//Step 1: select the hardware platform, only one at a time
//Step 2: Select one of the camera module, only one at a time
#if (defined(ARDUCAM_SHIELD_REVC) || defined(ARDUCAM_SHIELD_V2))
I attach it…
I tried to change configurations … but nothing.
I send you photo when try test streaming. I tried to change app config… but cam is always black and don’t take photo or video.
Thanks very much for your help
