SparkFun will be closed Nov 26th and 27th for the Thanksgiving holiday. Orders placed after 2:00pm MT on the 25th will ship out Monday the 30th.
Description: This is a simple USB Webcam that can be plugged into your computer or dev board and start capturing video right away. The resolution is 1024x768 which is adequate for motion-tracking or object-detection, but don’t expect to use it for photography or movie-making.
Note: This webcam works well in Linux, so it pairs well with a pcDuino.

Pics of the PCB are not accurate Got it and it works but they have changed the components around so it only has the one IC. I was planning on running this on 3.3V, bypassing the 5V to 3.3V regulator, only but it may not be possible with the model I have as it looks like the regulator is now on the main IC. Still trying to track down the spec sheet on the new chip.
followup: I am able to run the new model on one li-po cell so it does function as needed. Update rate seems a bit slow but it works. Connected to an Edison powered off the Sparkfun Battery board. Pics are updated too, thanks!
Sorry about this. We weren’t aware of any changes to this device. I’ll have the photos updated. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
It works in camera mode (continuous images) but doesn’t work in picture mode. Sometimes it takes single pictures some times don’t. And when it takes them the images are blurry. I tested the same webcam from my class mates and those worked good with my LabView program.
