I have to use a camera to take picture in my major project. I want to use this camera, which has AV output. Please tell me how to interface this camera with my Arduino Uno and use the data from camera and send it to my PC using a Wi-fi Module?

P.S. Please do not suggest me to use wireless camera because firstly they are expensive and secondly I require a board in my project anyway.


Unfortunately, I have to tell you that a UNO isn't enough powerful to work with any type of camera: it hasn't got enough ram and processing power to elaborate your camera's data. (see atmega328P's specs)

I'm not sure you can work with that camera, unless it is digital and has integrated RAM to keep the frames.

A good project which I suggest you to see is arducam.

  • Can you suggest me any camera to work with UNO? – Arpit Apr 2 '15 at 11:27
  • In the answer I linked you arducam – Stefa168 Apr 2 '15 at 11:44
  • yeah, I saw that but arducam are not low cost and are not widely available in India. Can you check this blog and tell me the possibilities of it's happening. Thank you – Arpit Apr 2 '15 at 13:02
  • Can you give a link to the camera you want ot use? I need more of a photo. Also, I have read the guide on Adafruit that you have linked, and it might work but from what I have read to take a photo it takes over two thousand milliseconds, so it isn't very fast – Stefa168 Apr 2 '15 at 13:12
  • Camera I want to use. – Arpit Apr 2 '15 at 13:27
