Cannot get a connection

  1. Where did you get the camera module(s)?
    I’ve the following SPI cam, bought in the webshop

  2. Model number of the product(s)?

  3. What hardware/platform were you working on?
    I am running on a ESP32 S3 DevKit C

  4. Instructions you have followed. (link/manual/etc.)
    I am basically following this example on GitHub.
    GitHub - ArduCAM/Arducam_Mega

  5. Problems you were having?
    For the very beginning, I just want to establish a connection with the cam.
    Therefore I created an instance of the class and provided the proper CS pin.
    In the setup method I am invoking begin. When doing this, my SPI connected display flickers and I hear some quiet “klack” sounds. The display usually displays some test text, but it turns white now.
    Then I do want to read the camera resolution, I do get a not initialised value (something negative).

  6. The dmesg log from your hardware?

  7. Troubleshooting attempts you’ve made?
    Disconnected other SPI devices, double checked the wiring.

  8. What help do you need?
    This is my first camera project and I do not have a clue how I could isolate the problem.
