Using original camera module in DIY project


#1

Now that everyone’s upgraded their original Flux, lots of us have old camera modules. I started looking at the module and did some searching. Turns out they are a pure USB web cam module (http://www.fangtec.com.tw/upload/14236184111854.pdf). You can use them by just getting an adapter to go from USB to Aces 87213-XXXX connector:

You can use them for your Raspberry Pi if you want a compact module, or just connect them to a computer. I just thought people might want to know!

That style and shape of camera is what’s in your laptop screen. That’s why they’re long and flat like that, and that’s why they use common cable connections like USB.
