The OpenMV M7 Camera is a small, low-power micro-controller board that allows you to easily implement applications using machine vision in the real world. The best part about the OpenMV is that it is not only capable of image capture, but also face detection, color tracking, QR code reading and plenty more. If you are looking for an economical camera module boasting multiple high-end features, look no further than the OpenMV M7!
The OpenMV can be programmed in high-level Python scripts (courtesy of the MicroPython Operating System) instead of C/C++. This makes it easier to deal with the complex outputs of machine vision algorithms and working with high-level data structures. You still have total control over your OpenMV M7 and its I/O pins in Python. You can easily trigger taking pictures and video on external events or execute machine vision algorithms to figure out how to control your I/O pins.
This version of the OpenMV M7 Camera no longer comes equipped with the acrylic case but still includes headers separate from the board. With the headers not pre-soldered, you have the option between normal male headers or female stackable headers, allowing you to decide how you use your own OpenMV!
