I remember reading, less than a month ago, a blog entry called “The Mysterious ESP-EYE” in which it is stated that there is no information on the Espressif site on this interesting little camera module. Well, I’ll correct that – there most certainly is now and here’s the link. https://www.espressif.com/en/products/hardware/esp-eye/overview
The ESP-EYE module is a little PCB with a camera and an ESP-32. Rather than print potentially out-of-date info here, I’ll just point you in the right direction for those interested. Here is a link for ordering info, the ESP-EYE Getting Started Guide and the ESP-EYE Reference Design notes all in one place. The ordering info is dated TODAY (Jan31, 2019) and the others are a few days old.
The ESP-EYE has the ESP-32, 2 Megapixel camera, microphone, 7MB of PSRAM and 4Mbyte of Flash. The ESP-EYE supports image transmission over WIFI and debugging through a micro-USB port.
And here it is..
There are also three buttons and an on-board 3D antenna..
More soon. At first glance this is looking like another really-committed-users first job – the Getting Started Guide refers to Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Having a “play” involves setting up Eclipse or similar, the toolchain and ESP-IDF from Espressif – I was hoping to have a play without having to compile anything but that’s not looking too likely right now.
