    @ajb2k3Have the camera, what now. 中说:

    Just recieved my M5esp camera today but what do I do with it?

    Just wondering, why have you ordered one, not knowing what to do with it?

    Err yes,
    I have idea but the lack of information on it is proving difficult.
    I plug in the usb and the thing runs hot (no leds)
    I connect to it and it downloads data but shows nothing on screen.
    It produces a file that ends in .jpg.download

    I'm actually hoping that it will prove smaller and better then a rpizero+camera option.



  • I must have recieved a faulty unit. the led next to the camera doesn't light up (looks shorted with solder) and there is flux puddles all over it!
    not to mention that there was not cover on the lens and loads of empty solder points.



  • Power it up. Look on your Wifi for an SSID like M5Cam. Connect your WiFI to it.
    FInd the IP Address, mine was 192.168.4.1
    Run a browser, I used Chrome, and type 192.168.4.1
    Away you go.

    the schematic can be found on this page https://github.com/m5stack/M5Stack-UserGuide/blob/master/ESP32CAM.md

    The empty footprints are bottom left of page 2, the MPU60x0 (gyro ) and SPQ2410HR5H which appears to be a microphone. I might try fitting an electret later and connecting it to pad 4, gain might be an issue though.
    I have seen old ads for them listed with the extra parts fitted for 3 times the price of this module, I think now sold out.
    The flux is normal and no big deal, if the LED works then it is not shorted by solder blobs, mine did not come with a lens cover either, the price for the entire module with ESP32 is cheaper than what I can buy the camera for, not expecting gold class here :)

    oh, the "demo" software as mentioned by jeff above sets it up in access point mode and then you can open either 192.168.4.1/jpg for a single image grab or 192.168.4.1/jpg_stream for a live feed

    the firmware is also on the page I linked, the page was branched from a previous demo by igrr and nothing has been edited so it does not properly explain either the hardware setup or the firmware, ie .. there is no ascii image output..

    Wait, the advertised gyro is missing?
    I put the test meter across the LED, the led is shorted (it's not even flat on the pcb!

    192.168.4.1/jpg_stream

    Does not work.



  • OK, mine seams to be dead however I have found the following.
    http://192.168.4.1 is the address.
    http://192.168.4.1:80 is the only open port.
    http://192.168.4.1/pgm grayscale image.
    http://192.168.4.1/bmp_stream - BMP stream.
    http://192.168.4.1/jpg_stream - jpg stream.



  • @ajb2k3

    ohhhh...

    you have a typo in your "faulty post" , I thought you meant is was messy soldering but works.

    I must have recieved a faulty unit. the led next to the camera does light up



  • @ajb2k3

    Huh ?

    192.168.4.1/jpg_stream

    Does not work

    Then next post you say it works ? You are being confusing lol, you can edit the posts if you want..

    Nope it doesn't work however, reading the source code that you linked to and a bit of probing, I found the other info but mine seems to have overheated and died.
    I need to find someone to solder in some wires to bypass the usb>usart chip and I just cant get it to work.
    Is it supposed to only draw 0.1A?
    Just trying to work out why the esp32 is running hot.
