OmniVision OV9640 hacking - part ][

So once the i2c problem was partly solved, I started putting together a driver for the camera chip. It's in an alpha-state currently, which means some things are still missing/doesn't work/are untested etc., but it can already make photos! Some examples follow.

This is a RGB565 photo of a monoscope.

This is a VYUY photo of a monoscope.

Here comes a list of the problems so far:
  • The image quality is still a little bad in case of VYUY, more bad in case of RGB565 and it doesn't work for RGB555 yet. This needs some further work.
  • Some of the advanced features of the OV96xx are missing altogether.
If you still haven't lost your interest, here are the patches:
