NEW GUIDE: Capturing images with CircuitPython @circuitpython @adafruit #circuitpython #keyboard

We have a new guide: Capturing images with CircuitPython

CircuitPython 7 adds support for capturing images from “parallel cameras” on select boards, and libraries are available to configure the popular OV7670 and OV2640 cameras.

While not up to standards we’re used to from a current smartphone or laptop, it’s nicely balanced to the capabilities of recent 32-bit microcontrollers.

The imagecapture module, available on select boards in CircuitPython 7, can capture images taken by these camera modules. The images can be displayed on an SPI TFT using displayio, or the pixel data can be accessed from Python and ulab. You can even stream them to your terminal in staggering 3-bit lo-fi ASCII art!

Check out the new guide; we’ll show you how to set up the camera modules on the Espressif Kaluga, Raspberry Pi Pico, and Adafruit GrandCentral boards.
