Hi OpenMV forum.
Courious on getting the OpenMV modules with the OV2640 chip up and running I am here writing a forum post to ask whether or not it is an easy task to get the bootloader installed, get the current firmware matched with the board and get the camera sensor working.
At least I can confirm that the BGA-balling on the OpenMV boards that I have are done just fine.
The only parts missing are the BD33IA voltage regulator, by the way being a very expensive 3.3V regulator which in general doesn’t make sense to use, and the IR LEDs.
Matching lenses and houses have been sourced so I am just eager to get all these 16 boards up and running… Hmm, what kind of fancy vision based robotics projects to make.
Or, I could start selling off these “working” boards at $100 USD a pop
Actually I don’t get the marketing that OpenMV is doing. Leaving all their Kickstarter backers behind, selling off their actually working units at ridiculous expensive prices rather than suppliying the backers, and then degrading their camera module to be supplied in the board for their backers to only 0.3MP instead of the promised 2MP.
What a scam?
Or is this just me?
