  • Can you tell me how you are hardware interfacing the camera to the PC ? I tried SparkFun's RS232 Shifter SMD but could not snap a single image from the evaluation GUI. Thanks.

  • I tried to interface this TTL camera to a PC using the SparkFun's RS232 Shifter SMD. I'm supplying 5V to both the camera and shifter. I am using the evaluation application "LSY201.exe" to take a single shot but all I get is the message: “PhotoOnce empty order queue” at the bottom of the GUI. The Tx/Rx lights on the shifter are flashing so I know something is working right.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated here. Thanks.

  • Were you ever able to interface the camera module to a PC? Do you have the TTL version ? If you were successful with the PC interface can you tell me about the circuitry used between the camera and PC ? I tried the RS232 Shifter SMD but was not successful. Thanks for your help.

  • Hello,

    Has anyone successfully used this product (RS232 Shifter SMD) with the LS-Y201 TTL Camera ?

    Thanks for your Response.

  • I soldered the microSD shield like the one in the photo above, i.e. I did not use the stackable header. I was planning to use the protype area to add a device requiring 5V power and GND. The issue I have is that the microSD shield does not connect the ground to the protype area. I don't know why this is so. Nevertheless can anyone tell me the best way to pass GND to the prototype area?

  • It works. Very simple once the soldering is done.

  • Can anyone tell me why the ground pins from the Arduino to the microSD are not connected to the prototype area.

  • Do you mean the 5th pin on the Camera (TV). I believe the TV is only used for a direct video connection to a television (PAL).

  • Can these be used to attach a Arduino Shield to the Uno?

  • I received this product today and noted that the shied does not fit on the UNO as depicted in the image above. The shield rest on the the USB connector making it difficult to make a good header pin fit and possibly a poor connection. Is this a defective microSD Shield or Defective UNO (both are new).

No public wish lists :(
