OV7725 – 0.3 MP Camera Module:

The OV7725 – 0.3 MP Camera Module features the OV7725 color sensor from OmniVision. The sensor has a 1/4.0″ optical format, which combined with the pixel size of 6.0 µm x 6.0 µm, results in the 0.3 MP 640 x 480 VGA image. This is a rolling shutter sensor, which captures an entire column (or row) simultaneously, and compiles the image by scanning across (or down).

Lens / Mounts:

These camera modules are sold bundled either with a stock lens with a plastic mount (U3182), an M12 lens with a plastic mount (U6066 – discontinued), or an M12 lens with a 15.5 mm height motorized IR cutoff filter mount (B0071); for the motorized IR cutoff filter mount, the user must supply the 5-18 V power. Unlike most ArduCAM cameras, you should not attempt to exchange the mounts (you may try to do so at your own risk).

IR Filter:

Except for the motorized IR cutoff filter, these cameras have a fixed IR cutoff filter, so they are not suitable for IR photography.

Camera Interface:

This camera module is available with two interfaces. The first (U6066) provides a UVC-compliant USB 2.0 interface that works “out of the box”. For the second option, you will need to create your own custom-built hardware interface via the 24-pin 0.5 mm pitch SCCB interface. Be sure to download the OmniVision and ArduCAM datasheets for more information.
