Maximum framerate on ArduCAM_Mini_5MP_Plus

1.Which seller did you purchase the product(s) from?
2.The Model number of the product(s) you have purchased?
3.Which Platform are you using the product(s) on?
Teensy 4.1 / Arduino Mega 2560
4.Which instruction are you following?
5.Has your product ever worked properly?
6.What problems are you experiencing?
Very simple and straight question. I have bought a product “ArduCAM_Mini_5MP_Plus” with a title containing"120fps" and “Arduino”. I want to know how to achieve 120 fps of fluent video, because - after hours spending on coding - the minimum time to get a 320x240px .bmp image for me is around 250ms (4fps). It is a drastic difference versus 120fps, don’t you think?
7.What attempts at troubleshooting have you already made?

8.How would you like us to help you?


The frame rate information you have above is the performance of the sensor itself. The working process of our SPI camera is: store the camera data into FIFO through CPLD, then read the FIFO data through SPI communication, and then send the data to PC software for display through the serial port. So the speed of SPI and serial port will affect the frame rate. You can crop the viewing angle of the output image to get a faster frame rate. Or use a 2MP camera, which is faster than 5MP.
