Adafruit Miniature TTL Serial JPEG Camera with NTSC Video Module

This tiny camera module offers a great way to add a camera to your project. Designed primarily to be used in security systems. It outputs NTSC colour video and takes photographs of the video and transmits them over the TTL serial link. Choose from various image resolutions; 640 x 480, 320 x 240 or 160 x 120 pixels. They are pre-compressed JPEG image which reduces the file size and enables you to store a large number on an SD card.

This module is perfect for a data-logging, security or photography project.

This camera has automatic image adjustment features to give you the best possible outputs from your camera including white balance, brightness and contrast.

The cameras motion detection provides the opportunity to capture images when something changes in the frame which again makes it great for surveillance projects.

The lens is manually adjustable with a 1 metre to 15 metres focal distance which is good for most projects.
