Hi, our new camera will have an optional global shutter sensor module, in addition to the new H7 (400MHz) MCU upgrade. The new camera will be released this year (hopefully).

Thanks , I am working with image process development in different platforms, but new in openmv. for starting, can u suggest your latest tutorial links? my project is develop colour mark detection from moving object and its x,y coordinates send through wireless communication.

We don't really have official tutorials, but if you search the forums you'll find many posts about color tracking, wifi etc.. and the IDE comes with examples too that you should use as a starting point.

Hi, the IDE has a lot of examples and it's really a learn by doing thing right now. Please see the File->Examples folder in the IDE.

Can you share which global shutter camera sensor in particular you are going to use?
I'm asking because I'm working on a project where OpenMV would be the perfect platform for, but it's quite sensitive to the particular camera characteristics, so knowing the exact sensor would help a lot in deciding whether I should base the project on OpenMV or not.

Sure, it's the MT9V034. It's the cheapest global shutter sensor of good quality that can do grayscale and color. We'll be buying the Bayer pattern version of the sensor. Unfortunately, it doesn't have much of an ISP onboard so we will be doing our best to process the image and do color correction, sharpening, etc.

Thanks, that's good news! I was mostly concerned about light sensitivity but that shouldn't be a problem with the MT9V034!

Um, September is when we launch the Kickstarter. Next year is when we deliver. The schedule is determined by the lead-time from ST to get the main MCU chip (because we will deliver all goods at the same time). I put the PO in for the 10k ST chips in yesterday so that's on it's way now. We were able to do do that with funds saved up from selling the OpenMV Cam M7. The Kickstarter funds will then be put towards buying everything but the main MCU.
