– Micro-SD memory card slot
– Lwip and FreeRTOS operating system
– Supports Smart Config/AirKiss one-click distribution network
– OmniVision OV2640 camera module included (1600 x 1200 px)

Camera Lens Options (available in our store):
– 65-75° (included with ESP32-CAM-MB module)
– 120° Wide Angle (SKU 26658)
– 160° Fisheye horizontal (SKU 26659)
– 160° Fisheye vertical (SKU 26660)

The ESP32-CAM-MB module comes in a very small form factor of just 27 x 40mm and fits perfectly on a breadboard for your experiments. We recommend GitHub for software downloads and code examples.

This is the recommended first step to start tinkering with it:
– Follow the instructions on this website:
– Select “AI Thinker ESP32-CAM” as the board in Arduino IDE
– Change communication speed to 115200
– Select the corresponding COM port in Arduino IDE
– Uploading the code for the cam server demo provided on the website using Arduino IDE:
a) the upload starts possibly automatically, then wait until it has finished
b) Arduino IDE shows “connecting…” and the upload only starts after pressing “reset” on your ESP32 module
– Keep following the procedure described in the tutorial

If you receive an error message “detected camera not supported” you should double-check that the selected module in your sketch is “AI Thinker”.

These camera modules can be a little more tricky than an Arduino UNO. Don’t give up, keep trying, reading, and trying again, if it doesn’t work right away.

    Thank you for the review. As you say, the camera module can (in some rare cases) not be used as a 1:1 replacement for e.g. an AI-Thinker ESP32-CAM module. But the distance between the USB port and the Wi-Fi antenna doesn’t really matter because the programmer is typically removed when the Wi-Fi module is used in its final application.
